Get your scissors, washi tapes, creativity and appetite ready as the countdown to Craftathon 2020 is on!!!

Join us on Saturday, March 14, 2020 for our 5th annual Craftathon fundraiser in support of LGBT YouthLine! It’s a full day of crafting fun from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at Sketch Working Arts in Toronto.

It’s our 25th anniversary and what better way to celebrate with us than by participating in this year’s Craftathon!
The world is a tough place right now, which means LGBT YouthLine is needed more than ever to create safer spaces and support queer, trans, and Two-Spirit youth in Ontario. As YouthLine’s main fundraiser, the money raised through Craftathon goes directly to support our peer support service and programs year-round.

We are lining up tons of amazing crafts for 2020, including some one-of-a-kind workshops. Form a team, join a team, or fundraise individually. Come out for a sober, kid-friendly day of crafting, fun, and community! All you need to do is raise is $100 to attend! We are also back with raffle prizes for those who become Master Crafters and raise $300 or more.

Accessibility Notes:
– There will be food (with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options)!
– The venue is fully wheelchair accessible
– Washroom facilities are gender-neutral
– Craftathon is a low/no-scent event. Please help us by refraining from wearing perfumes, colognes, scented creams, sprays and other scented items that can aggravate allergies.
