OVERVIEW

New in 2020, the Maine Crafts Association is managing four fine craft shows previously managed by the Maine Crafts Guild. Our two organizations have joined together as one Maine craft organization offering all the programs, events and initiatives previously offered by each separate organization. The shows feature fine craft artists from the Maine Crafts Guild juried membership and craft artists who have have been juried into the new Guild level of membership by the MCA. The shows will also include a selection of juried craft artists from the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.

The intent of the shows, as it was under Maine Crafts Guild management, is to nurture a market place where the public can see, collect and learn about the highest quality craft objects made by Maine’s most dedicated, talented and trained craft artists who have mastered their tools, techniques and vision to create original fine craft objects for everyday use and special occasions.
