You already know the value of American craft; that’s why you’re in the business you’re in. But what about the general public? Do the people in your area really understand what American craft is all about?
American Craft Week, a new initiative organized by Craft Retailers and Artists for Tomorrow (CRAFT) and Craft in America, hopes to improve craft’s recognition across the country. The national celebration, Oct. 1-10, will bring together individuals, retailers and organizations in recognition of how handmade objects improve our daily lives and contribute to the national aesthetic and economy.
