Can I place an ad to sell used studio / workshop equipment or craft supplies?
YES!

I’m seeking or hiring for a craft related job. Can I place an ad here?
YES!

Are home + studio rental and sales listings okay?
YES! But, they need to have a link to Maine craft such as: the owner is a MCA member, the property is a studio rental/sale, the property is uniquely suited to artists and in Maine. We don’t want to list general real estate sales and rentals.

I would like to advertise my work and website. Can I place an ad here?
NO, not here, but that can be listed in your member profile OR you might consider our Co-Op Advertising opportunities.

I’m looking to hire someone to create an e-commerce website for my business. Can I place an ad here?
YES!

I offer a professional service that applies to craft artists (web design, bookkeeping, marketing)
YES!

Can I post advertisements for public events?
NO, not here, but you can submit calls for artists/ participants for the event.

Can non-MCA members list ads in Craft Classifieds?
YES! As long as the listing is Maine craft related and fits into the types of listing we are sharing. As with all listings, if we determine it doesn’t fit in we will let you know. & we always welcome new members – please consider joining! Click here for more info.

Quilts

I am the Community Engagement Manager for the Georges River Land Trust in Rockland. This July 26th, we are planning our annual fundraising dinner. The event and dinner are taking place in a renovated barn at the Langlais Art Preserve, which is a lovely space. Unfortunately, in previous years we have had feedback that this space is a little echo-y.

I was thinking it would be a lovely and practical solution to hang quilts on the walls for this event. That way, the space would be nicely decorated, the space would be less echo-y, and local artists could display their work to an (honestly pretty affluent) audience. Ideally, I envision the room being filled with quilts that have themes surrounding nature, water, trees, etc. Artists could price their work and sell through this event by attaching their contacts to their quilts.
