Iqualit locations are host to three craft fairs


Three craft fairs take place in succession in the capital Nunavut. The first took place on January 28 at the Aqsarniit Hotel.

This is our first craft fair this year, we would like to organize them every few months. We tried to get more and more involved in the community by hosting these events and sharing our space here in the hotel and conference center, said Edward Mosher, sales and catering coordinator at Aqsarniit.

The event was organized by the hotel in partnership with QIA, which helped source tradeswomen and artisans to fill the 28 available tables at the venue. In the end, sixteen tables were filled, free of charge for any beneficiaries of land claims.

A variety of products were sold: country foods, seal skins, clothing, earrings and jewelry, handmade products, Mosher added.

The second craft fair will take place on February 4 and is hosted by Naja Marie Ruhiyyih Fennell.

Aqsarniit Hotel gave us the venue for free, which meant participants didn’t have to pay for a table, which is good for all of us. They want to promote these types of events for the community, said Marie Ruhiyyih Fennell.

The craftswoman herself will have a table, where she and her son will sell jewelry, crocheted and sewn products. William Marie Ruhiyyih Fennell, an eight-year-old craftsman and baker, sells cookies and banana bread along with some sewn pieces he’s made.

Attending craft fairs is something Marie Ruhiyyih Fennell has done all her life. I remember when I was very young and present to be by my brother and sister’s side, she said.

Thirty tables are available, again free for elders and benefit recipients. Elders are invited to book tables in advance as they were given priority at the available kiosks.

Marie Ruhiyyih Fennell said these grants are greatly appreciated because they help put food on the table for those in need.

They are really useful for students. It’s not always easy to work and study at the same time, especially for those who have to take care of the kids at home, she added.

A wide variety of products will be available from February 4.

We really do have a little bit of everything from bath bombs, cooked foods, baked goods, mittens, sushi and even homemade dog treats, said Marie Ruhiyyih Fennell.

Another craft fair will take place at the gymnasium of Inuksuk High School on Wednesday, February 15. The event is a gathering of Inuit educators from Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, Nunavut, Greenland, Alaska and Norway. Tables are available for $25 and interested vendors can contact Lisa Schellenberger to make reservations.
