Cedar Park United Church is a founding member church of theÂ Dix-Mille Villages fair trade store in Pointe-Claire Village. In keeping with our commitment to supporting fair trade, we would like to highlight these events that will be taking place over the next few weeks.
- Fair trade Rug Event, Friday, October 18 – Sunday, November 3, 2013. Join us for our Fair Trade Rug Event. We work with BUNYAAD Oriental rugs. Rugs are hand knotted and made by fairly paid adults in Pakistan. The store will also be open evenings by appointment only during this period. With over 150 carpets to choose from, you’ll be sure to find that perfect piece of art to enhance your home dÃ©cor.
- Fair trade Rug Seminar, Friday, October 25, 2013, 7pm. As part of our event, we’ll be hosting an inâ€“store seminar where you can learn everything you need to know about oriental rugs. Admission is free but registration is required due to limited space. Please contact the store to reserve your spot: 514-428-0450. Fairly traded coffee and chai tea will be served. Come hear artisan stories and learn how these works of art are changing lives.
