Member Testimonials

“The Craft Ontario Gallery… remains one of the best experiences I've had exhibiting, both in regards to the wonderful success I had showing and selling my work there during the exhibition, and the incredibly supportive team at Craft Ontario.”

⎯ Juliana Scherzer

“It is easy to fall deep within your own work and be consumed by it completely, without any outside perspective. Receiving this award has allowed me the chance to step back, organize, and evaluate.”

⎯ Saydee Chandler

"The reputation of Craft Ontario and its shop brings a broader customer base than I could find on my own. My work is seen by collectors, casual shoppers, and visitors to town. The resulting exposure and sales have been important to my growth as an artisan."

⎯ Micheline Roi

"I worked on 'Security Blanket' for 5 years; slowly and consistently stitching away, alone in my studio. Craft Ontario generously provided me with an opportunity to share the fruits of this labour with the wider community."

⎯ Jennifer Smith-Windsor
