Plan your visit to CRAFTED now!

The official CRAFTED program is hot off the presses and available here.  You can plan your visit ahead of time and pick up your hardcopy when you arrive.

Looking to maximize your visit?  One CRAFTED committee member (a craft sale officianado!) told us that she organizes her sale visits by doing a first run through all the booths and marking those she loves with a star in her program.  All the stars get a second visit, and likely a sale.

Whether your approach is casual or seriously organized, you’ll enjoy learning more about each craft artist in the program and by visiting their area at CRAFTED.  See you there.
