2017 Ontario retreat group photo

16 designers, retailers, suppliers and prospective members attended the AFCI Canada annual Ontario retreat during the weekend of May 5 – 7, at Niagara College.

The retreat was a great success, supported by generous donations by our sponsors (listed below), and by the talent of our workshop and seminar instructors.  Light entertainment was provided by a “Draw your partner” game (thanks Brenda!), a mini wine cork make & take, and a visit to a local winery to sample some excellent wine and cheese pairings.  Each attendee received a swag bag of kindly-donated items to take home, not to mention the supplies for each workshop.

Sincere thanks to our super-generous sponsors:

Ava Gavloski took on the challenge to create some projects from the swag bag items, and will receive a small gift from us in return!

We hope you can join our fabulous retreats, either in Alberta in the Fall, or in Ontario next year!
