5th Line Creations
Living a crafty dream!
5th Line Creations started as an after-work hobby to decompress and has quickly turned into a way for me to share handmade creations with others. My love of fun fabrics leads the way in what I make; Fandom fabrics are especially fun to work with – I love to connect people with pieces that can be used as conversation starters. You never know when you might have a shared interest in 90s anime with a potential new friend! Follow me on Instagram if you’d like to see what I’m up to @5thlinecreations

Artisan fartisan making nifty pots to use and love in every day life.
I’m Aleatha (she/her): catmom, foodie, appreciator of good leaves, and a life long artist living in Brockville Ontario. I make pots in my home studio. When I signed up for a pottery class in 2018 I immediately fell madly in love with the medium. I love the process and the many stages between wet clay and finished stone. I love that you can touch and interact with a piece of art while you do something that we all do – eat! And I love connecting my pieces to their new homes knowing they’ll be part of bringing smiles and comfort to someone’s every day life.

We help you take care of your skin with nourishing Shea Butter productshttps://www.aromariss.com/
I started making soaps and body products more than 20 years ago when I was still leaving in Africa. The formula I used in my soaps are based on vegetable oils and butters that were easily found there. Which explain why the main ingredient in my soaps is Shea Butter. My soaps and body products are very gentle and would not dry your skin.

Artwork Makes Everything Betterhttps://ottawaartisans.com/pages/seller-profile/artwork-by-sandra-naufal
As a decorative artist specializing in handpainted items, home decor pieces and accessories, I’m proud of my upbringing as a first generation Canadian. Growing up surrounded by relatives who created beautiful handiwork, I was always inspired by the intricacy of crochet, embroidery and countless hours that went into creating family heirlooms. I often feel like I am paying tribute to my grandmothers who took pride in their craft. Many of my handpainted items have been turned into printables notebooks, notecards, stickers and bookmarks. Adding a modern twist to fine linens, wood, rope and beadwork are many of the items used to create decorative pieces with.

Chez Louie Designs
Waterproof vinyl stickers & other cheeky little treasures.https://www.chezlouiedesigns.com/
Affectionately named after my cat, Louie, I launched Chez Louie Designs in Summer 2020 as both a creative outlet and a way to connect with others.

My illustrations often represent authentic or vulnerable aspects of myself, twisted generally with some kind of humor, in an attempt to connect with other people. Drawing for me is a catharsis, a way to channel my emotions and is influenced by struggles and experiences in my life, including mental health, work-life balance, pet ownership and more. Generally, I aim for candid, cute and swear-y when I pick up my Apple pencil.
Cosmic Jackalope Co
✨ Where the magical & creative meet ✨https://linktr.ee/cosmicjackalopeco
OH HOWDY THERE HOP STUFF! Welcome to COSMIC JACKALOPE CO. (previously Jackalope Crafts)! My name is Sam (she/her) and I am 28 years old Taurus who is obsessed with bunnies, the moon, glitter, smashing the patriarchy and Taylor Swift. I am primarily a resin, design and embroidery artist but I am also a songwriter, singer and producer. So here’s the sitch. My journey has had a lot of ups and downs and as I’m sure many can relate, there have been days where I didn’t know if I was going to make it. But I did and a constant source of growth, therapy and self care has always been creativity and self expression. I truly wouldn’t know where I would be without my ability to create things. With that being said, I started Cosmic Jackalope Co. not only as a way to set my own schedule and do things at my own pace as a chronic illness warrior, but to be able to use my privilege and allyship in society the best way I can. I want to speak up for the voiceless and help those speaking say it louder. Also with every purchase, I will be donating 5% of the listing price to a cause, or initiative in need. I feel like part of my journey on this earth is to help others and this is one way I can do that. Finally, even though I run everything myself, my doggo Bane gives his seal of approval on every item I make/ package with a good ol’ nose boop or sniff snoff. So also tell your fur baby we say hi 💕 Hope to see you around the fluffle soon! – With love and bunny binkies, Sam P.S: *A Fluffle is a group of bunnies & binkies are bunny equivalent to doggo zoomies. Google it.*
Mom made with love (and crochet!)
This little venture was started last year with my mom. She loves to create new things with crochet, I sometimes I have to tell her to not create “new” items because older ones are still lined up! We both love crafts and I wanted to do something to keep her busy and motivated and this is what we came up with! Thank you for all your love and support last time, we look forward to another round with PNP! This time more important actually, we have some “Ukraine themed” products for which we are donating 100% of our earnings directly in Ukraine. We met a kind lady on Instagram who is also an influencer in Ukraine – she is helping people in Ukraine find safety and food. Hope you like our products! If you’d like to follow us and share feedback, you can do so on Instagram – @CraftifyMom. Thank you!
Hand made pens, spice mills and bowls made from recovered, rescued, and sustainably harvested woods for a lifetime of use and joy.http://www.distinctivewoodworking.ca/
With a 30 year career in high tech, a pair of strong female university aged daughters and a special needs teenage son, I use my ‘distinctive woodworking’ persona as a way to step away from ‘battling my computer’ and to express some badly needed creative time. It also creates an outlet for me to do woodworking with my autistic son in the hopes of building his skills, and to provide him the ability to grow. The other very very important part of distinctive woodworking: I provide people the opportunity to understand that writing is still a crucial part of people’s lives, and that one can write with a sustainable, long lasting, pen, instead of some Chinese-made plastic junk that ends up in a landfill. My bowls and spice mills give you the ability to work with organic textures and tools, while providing an opportunity (especially in the spice mills) to work with smaller, fresh-ground, quantities of herbs, spices, salts and peppers.
Dollop of Spice
Hello! I’m Kanika, this is my second business (first one is Craftify Mom – go visit! :D). Few years ago I found myself to be in love with cooking, trying new dishes and the feedback I’ve received over the years has been very encouraging! With that motivation, I decided to create a Dollop of Spice to share my and my mom’s Indian spice and pickles recipes, you’d find pickles, jams, spreads and what not but everything will have a touch of “Indian-ness”. It’s all home made, tried and tested. If you have any feedback or would just like to follow us, please visit us @DollopOfSpice on Instagram! Thank you for visiting us 🙂

Robyn, Trish, and Roxyshe/her
When Roxy and Robyn signed up for a jewellery-making class in 2006, we never imagined we’d be selling our work worldwide! However, in 2008, we did exactly that, launching Drakestail Jewellery at a small local fair. Following that success, we’ve participated in numerous fairs and markets, and launched our Etsy shop to reach a much wider audience. Fast forward to 2015, Trisha joined the team as our third jewellery designer. We’re thrilled to be a trio, and we love bringing our unique styles together into our shop. Our goal is to create quality jewellery that is fun, versatile, and feels fabulously YOU. Drakestail Jewellery is a 100% women-owned business. It’s important to us to be inclusive, and we promote body positivity for all people. We will happily work with clients of any gender, orientation, colour, or culture to help them feel fabulous in our jewellery.

Emma Gerard Glass Jewellery
Bright and colourful handmade glass necklaces and earringshttps://www.emmagerard.com/
I bring 16 years of experience working with glass that includes an advanced diploma from Sheridan College’s Crafts & Design program, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from NSCAD University where I studied metalsmithing. All of my jewellery is completely hand-sculpted and handmade by me. I start with coloured rods of glass that are the thickness of a pencil and melt them at a small oxygen-propane torch using heat, gravity and a few of my favourite metal sculpting tools to sculpt the glass into the desired shape without the use of molds. It is important to me that everything I make is truly handmade as this is not only more fun for me as a artist, but it means that every piece I make for my customers is unique and one of a kind. Creating my jewellery pieces in this way makes sculpture and fine craft more accessible to the average person and also loved by my loyal following.

I come from a long line of makers.

For this I feel so blessed. Grass Stain Glass is my means to express the little bits of life that are charming to me. When I practice stained glass I am in a world surrounded by that lineage of people that I come from who taught me the power of my two hands.
Armour to help you take on the world!https://www.historicallinks.ca
I’m a chronically ill queer jeweler living in Ottawa on un-ceded Algonquin Anishinabe territory. I handcraft unique pieces of jewelry using stunning patterns, including some that have been around for centuries. Each ring is individually opened, closed and linked to create these patterns. My love of fantasy and history was the initial reason I got into jewelry, but I was also driven by the need I saw around me for jewelry for sensitive skin, which is why I make pieces in a wide variety of metals. I also provide different sizes and customize pieces so that everyone can enjoy my work.
If: Ball‚ Then: Catch
A beautifully illustrated book to get kids excited about robotics and coding!https://www.ifballthencatch.ca
Katherine is a female engineer who would like to encourage young children to get interested in the STEAM field (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). After many years of volunteering with children, she wrote “If: Ball, Then: Catch” to make robotics and coding seem more exciting and approachable! John (the illustrator) is a retired engineer and grandfather with a knack for water colour and cartooning. Both Katherine and John are based in Ottawa, Ontario. “If: Ball, Then: Catch” follows the story of a girl who is given a robot dog on her 8th birthday. If she can train this robot dog, then she will prove to her parents that she can handle a real live dog. How hard could it be? Follow along with Dot as she is introduced to some of the logic, reasoning, and structure used to program robots – as well as the importance of curiosity and never giving up! Will Dot be able to prove she is ready for a real live puppy?
Ifs‚ Ands‚ or Buttons
Buttons, magnets, and other little things with unapologetic passion.https://ifsandsorbuttons.ca/
I’m a proud queer, feminist maker. The reason I started making buttons is the same reason I continue to make them: I love their ability to communicate, to unite, and to spread awareness, discussion, and progress. I love that this small medium can express so much with the wearer not saying a word. My designs are inspired by things that I am passionate about: activism, animals, plants, mental health, and, of course, cute things. My goal is to spread joy, awareness, community, and understanding while raising money for local causes. I work to make my activism and designs intersectional, and am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge and awareness – while recognizant of my privilege as a white, cis woman.

A portion of sales from any of my pride macrame collections will be donated to a local charity- my way of giving back to our community.
Closer to mino bimaadiziwin/the good life one bead at a time!
I am a mixed Anishnaabe artist that enjoys creating art inspired by our Earth’s beauty! I love focusing my creativity on nature themes and colour palettes. I feel that this focus has given me more gratitude for the world around me. Turtle Island gives us so much that a simple walk through the forest on a warm summer’s day can stir up so many creative ideas! Combining traditional beadwork techniques with nature allows anyone to support Indigenous beadwork and culture. Who doesn’t love a cute lil bug, or pretty flower? I also strive to incorporate the Anishnaabe language into my beadwork. Something as simple as including a word in Anishnaabemowin that can relate to each art piece. I hope that this will spark an interest in learning the language for other Indigenous kin, or maybe non-Indigenous kin who understand the importance of language revitalization!

Hey there! I am Brittany Ritu Deecker, of Ritu Art & Design. I’m a neurodivergent multimedia artist born and raised in Ottawa and have recently returned after a 6 year stint in Alberta.

Tubby Tabby Soaps
Tubby Tabby Soaps is a tiny, (queer) family-owned company that makes small batches of handmade soap in Ottawa, ON. We're passionate about make fun and exciting bath and body products that are also sustainable and eco-friendly.https://tubbytabby.com/
Eli Eaton and Lia Walshhe/they (Eli); she/her (Lia)
Eli and Lia are a couple of queers with a magnificently fat tabby cat named Abby. Abby is essentially the love of our lives. In appreciation of her roundness, we sometimes call her Abby the Flabby Tabby, or (you guessed it) the Tubby Tabby. Our company name is an homage to our beautiful and beloved fur baby. Please rest assured that she does not like actual (bath)tubs one bit, and we do not put Abby in our bathtub, ever, under any circumstances. To reward us for our good faith, Abby has agreed not to scratch our eyes out while we sleep. The soaps we make are one-of-a-kind, fun and definitely a little gay. We love colour and you can rest assured that there will be cool designs involved. Currently we specialize in bar soap and shampoo bars, as they’re easiest on the environment. None of our products contain harsh surfactants or detergents that aren’t biodegradable. All of our soaps are made with natural (usually edible) oils that have a simple, naturally-occurring chemical added to make soap: lye. Alone, lye is very caustic and so it needs to be handled carefully. But once you add it to oils in a delicate balance (as we do), the magic of chemistry begins to transform those two ingredients into a mild, cleansing soap. Soap has been made for millennia, and while commercial soaps use all sorts of environmentally-damaging and carcinogenic ingredients to improve the foaming or appearance of the soap, we’re all about keeping it as simple as possible. We make good soap with biodegradable ingredients, and they look cute AF, too. What more could you want? 🙂
Fun and comfortable handmade fashion. This limited run lingerie collection, featuring upcycled faux fur and stretch lace, invites you to be bold and playful. Whether you wanna show it off or just feel yourself!
I am a queer female fashion designer with a love for texture and a desire to help people feel fully themselves in the clothes they wear. For the last 5 years I have been creating quality custom garments with a focus on comfort, bold textiles, and playful design. Intimate apparel provides a unique space to explore what makes the wearer feel empowered and confident. For this limited run lingerie collection I have featured garment factory remnants of faux fur and stretch lace, to minimize waste and play with bold material combinations. I am challenging the boundaries of traditional beauty and gender standards and expectations. You can show some love to yourself, someone else, and the environment, in these comfy intimates!

Witch Haus created after having to pivot my business due to the Pandemic. I love creating and crafting so it was the perfect opportunity to create something new.
