Laura Wells is always in some kind of jam. (Or jelly or pickle)

Kevin Coffin is probably the youngest booth holder this year. His sales pitch is smooth as he assures customers he made it all himself. He also assured me his mom puts him on the Internet all the time. He wasn’t going to miss some free advertising!

Not their first time involved in collection. Clergy managing the admission. ONLY $3 to get into this great event where everyone tries to help.

Wooden boat display also serves as a screen for a projection of the film Cranky.

Sure, you can get grub here! You can even buy a grub box by Donald Wells.

Speaking of grub, last chance for Growler’s Ice Cream and food from Nicole’s Café before they close for the winter.

Construction and new home builds are strong on Shoal Bay ‘s Herring Cove Gallery. Winston Osmond isn’t usually huffin’ but spends a lot of puffin time.

Linda Osmond’s gorgeous quilts!

Taking pictures from behind Seal Harbour Designs booth because there are so many customers you can’t see it from the front. Great local clothing and purses made from seal skin. Owner Heather White from Change Islands.

My favorite area. I just love watching the boat building by children.

image

Painting is important in boat building too.

And there’s no age limits! Claudia Brahms teaching paper strip weaving.

And now I’m worried I missed someone! There was so much! Eileen Osmond and others are also showing their knitting, quilting and hooking too.

This festival is definitely a winner!

  1. Hi, My name is jeff clarke from gander and i was just looking at some of the pics thats on here of the festival. Im just wondering how one can go about getting a booth at this next season if possible . I make model fishing vessels for people, custom made. You can see my work on my Facebook page called ” Jeffs Little Boats Of NL”. I would love to get my display set up there next year . If someone would get back to me that would be great. My e-mail is jeff72clarke@yahoo.ca.

    Thanks

    jeff
