Pin-It Draw

The Festival Society of Nova Scotia is a not-for-profit organization which coordinates the annual Fibre Arts Festival each October in Amherst. There are many, many volunteers who work together and contribute long hours to make the festival be the success it is. One of the most exciting things taking place this year is a Pin It draw;  each $10. ticket (which comes with a festival pin) gives you a chance to win some exquisite hand made items...and the grand prize of a trip for two to New York City!
Generously donated by Amherst's fabulous new quilt shop  Mrs Pugsley's Emporium, the trip is part of Showcase Productions annual Christmas on Broadway tours:
Showcase Productions Theatre Tours has been sharing the excitement of “Christmas on Broadway” with Atlantic Canadians for 24 years, transporting you to an exciting world of culture, fashion and wonderment. Visit Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Centre, Macy’s, Saks 5th Ave., and almost everything from Harlem to the Financial District. 
Tour package includes: luxury coach transportation to and from your pick-up location and New York City, 7 nights accommodations (including 5 nights in the heart of New York City and 2 nights in Maine enroute), 2 breakfasts, 2 group meals, a four-hour tour of Manhattan, a TKTS voucher for a Broadway performance, and the services of two tour escorts to help you along the way. While in New York, you will stay at The Muse HotelThe coach originates in Halifax but makes pick up stops along the way so folks may board in Truro, Amherst, Moncton and Fredericton.  There is more information on this fabulous prize on the Showcase Productions website;  details are under Tour C-2 HalifaxNS – Muse Hotel, NYC

Pin It tickets are currently available at Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium;  during the festival they will also be available at several locations including Festival Headquarters (Town Hall).  The ticket includes a guide with artist information for the various displays on the downtown walking tour. The draw for the prizes will be made at the close of the festival on October 18, with the trip taking place November 16-23, 2014.  Make sure you get a ticket to get in on the fun!
