American Craft Week 2018

Have you signed up yet?

American Craft Week participation is free for all CRAFT members! Get your business listed now.

American Craft Week began as a grassroots effort in 2010 with a small number of craft artists, galleries and events. Our goal was (and still is) “to make noise”, and “to put handmade in a bright national spotlight”. Every industry needs to champion itself, and craft is no different.

But without an enormous Madison Avenue advertising budget, how could we make a splash? The answer became clear: together we can be a mighty force! If all across the county we publicize simultaneous events, use a common logo, and issue a call to celebrate American handmade craft, we can create an enormous public relations event for our industry.

All we need is for everyone to do their part! And that’s where you come in. Help us tell the world that craft is a valuable economic engine for families and communities. When we purchase handmade goods made in the USA, all the money stays here, and is spent and invested here!
