~Crafters ~

If interested in being a crafter at our fair on Dec. 2, please fill out the application, send with 3 pictures of your craft, and your payment either by Mail or Online. (Your pictures will be returned, if accepted: on the day of the fair, if not accepted: returned by mail. Digital pictures are also acceptable.) Application and check must be received before the pictures are submitted to the jury. 

We are juried. The primary criterion is the craft must be made by the crafter and unique. Thus, not sold commercially. Of course, we understand crafters may have their wares on consignment. Crafts are judged on: 

  • Made by the crafter
  • Unique craft
  • Quality of craft
  • Photos and prints must be limited edition

Items NOT permitted: 

  • Objects assembled from commercially made kits
  • Imports

Spaces are limited. When the jury decides you will be notified if you have a space or have been placed on a waiting list. If we can not accommodate you, your check with the photos will be returned.
