Welcome Back Toronto Craft Alert!

Local favorite the Toronto Craft Alert (the TCA) is back from its 6 month hiatus! They are switching up the content a little, no longer accepting submitted listing and moving to more personal content on "great exhibitions, makers, etc. worthy of sharing with y'all". Never fear - resources for artists and craftspeople in Toronto are still found on their forums, including Craft Shows - Vender Calls and Exhibitions - Calls for Submissions sections.

We here at the Toronto Etsy Street Team look forward to seeing what they come up with and reading all new Toronto crafty news. We missed you - welcome back!
