What people had to say


Thanks for having us . The exposure for the Ladysmith Community Garden Society was great! We'll be back next year.


Our day was great! Thank you for a wonderful, well organized Festival of Art! Ladysmith should be very proud!

I had a wonderful day, visiting with old Ladysmith friends ( we used to live in Ladysmith ), having my friends from Lake Cowichan visit in a supportive capacity, & enjoying meeting new people interested in oil pastels. It was also lucrative enough that I was able to cover the entry fee ( which I consider too high compared to years ago when I was a participant ) and then extra money to take home. Also the interest in my work was gratifying & I gave out many business cards & made new contacts for further work.

Thanks for a well organized event. All went very smoothly from setting up to leaving the site & everyone was most helpful.

Thank YOU for the wonderful organisation and for such an enjoyable day!

For a large event it was surprisingly calm setting up and it seemed to go very smoothly for the remainder of the day. The customers certainly were extremely friendly and welcoming. I was very happy with my location, as I was directly opposite an opening between two of the artisans tents. This meant that they could view my display across the road and many came over before continuing on with the art.

 Thanks again and I hope to be considered as a vendor next year.

Thank you all for a fantastic day.  Superb organization and great company. 


To Kathy and Committee

Thank you Kathy and everyone for a great event. First class organization made for a first class event. Lots of folks and they were purchasing! I did even better than last year and hardly had a minute to breathe. It seemed everyone in tent K was happy. Great fun...! Days like that make me happy to be a potter. Not bad weather either.

 I'm looking forward to next year already.

Warm Regards,

Chip Nary
