With the festival ending a few days ago, we want to give a big shout out to everyone who took the time to be part of this Winterlude 2010 experience.
To all the dedicated volunteers who with cold hands helped with installation, de-installation, photography and crafting/instructing in “extreme” temperatures and the coziness of Maison Charron.
To all the urban cozy contributors, from Ottawa-Gatineau, across Canada and internationally. Without you the installation wouldn’t exist. We received over a hundred contributions in different-sized shapes and colours. It never ceased to bring a smile to our faces when we received envelopes or bags with a new submission and a handwritten message, often with a story behind the cozy.
To everyone who passed the word on about the installation and call for participation and to those who rallied troops together to make stuff.
To those who came out during the workshops, events and installations - we hope you had a fun time!
To the National Capital Commission for hosting us to add a new twist to the festival this year.
And to everyone else we may have forgotten, including all those who supported us before and during the festival.
Stay tuned for news for future Spins & Needles programming, including our 5-year anniversary coming up soon.
