Get ready for the Amazing Artisan Auction!

Are you a talented Artisan? Do you create or love fine craft ware? If so, then this is the auction for you! CHWUC is holding an on-line auction of exclusive, one-of-a-kind creations. We are looking for items such as:  fine wood working, quilts, afghans, stained glass, paintings, pottery, weaving, etc. Lovely creations for folks to bid on. 

If you’d like to submit your item for the auction, please contact Jill Brogan at  (902) 329-4953 If you know someone who’d like to bid on items, or donate an item, please let them know about this and share on your social media pages. We will be limiting the number of items to 20, so it may be that not every item will show on this auction – however we’d be happy to include it in our regular auction in the fall.

The “Amazing Artisan Auction” will be held via Facebook and will be open for bidding between Monday June 6th to Sunday June 12th. Bidding will end that Sunday @ 4pm.

The backing board is a piece from a Hemlock tree which was also cut on my property, milled and hand planed.
