Sue-Anne jaySince 1924, the Women’s Institute of Prince Edward Island (PEIWI) has played an integral part in Old Home Week. The PEIWI Handcrafts, Horticulture and Arts Show is an annual competition of arts and crafts submitted from Islanders artisans. The entries have been on display for the past week at the Provincial Exhibition grounds in Charlottetown.

The Premier’s Craft Education Award was established in 2005 to enhance skill and proficiency in a chosen craft and to share experience with others. The $3000 prize is used to fund training to further develop the winning crafters skills and further develop the chosen craft on PEI. This year’s winner of the Premier’s Craft

Education Award is Sue Anne Jay.

The exhibit displays a wide range of artistic mediums, ranging from unique pieces of photography and needlework, to food and flower arrangements. Through Innovation PEI, the province provides $4,000 for special prizes, including the exhibitors who accumulate the most points in handcrafts; food; flowers; the best painting or drawing in any medium; best quilt; best rug; best afghan; and the grand prize of the Premier’s Craft Education Award.

The Handcrafts, Horticulture and Arts Show is in its 89th year.
