Combermere Craft Cabin donates $2000 to community organizations

A number of local organizations have gotten a boost thanks to the Craft Cabin in Combermere.

Susan Wade, President of the Craft Cabin, says they were able to donate over $2,000 to local institutions from their 2021 sales. These include the Wilno and Combermere skating rinks, the Food Bank, and Madawaska Valley Community Living, which received $600.

Wade says it was the biggest donation they have ever given since they began doing it, despite being open only one day a week last year. She credits the success to a number of talented artisans and the fact the Craft Cabin is a community-run non-profit, something Wade says visitors enjoy.

This year the Craft Cabin is aiming to raise even more money for the community when it opens its doors this summer. While not set in stone, Wade says they are working with schools in the area to create a breakfast program.

The Combermere Craft Cabin is a cooperative of local artisans where they can sell and display their wares. The Cabin takes a five per cent fee from each sale which then goes into the community fund. Wade says they are always looking for new artisans and crafters, and in particular, want to find a local honey supplier.
