Save the Date: 2021 Holiday Art & Fine Craft Show!
We are returning to the CREC for our Holiday Art & Fine Craft Show on November 13 and 14th from 10AM to 5PM each day!
With more than 60 juried artisans offering high quality, handmade, one-of-a-kind artwork in a variety of media, this is a great opportunity to get some holiday shopping done – and support small, local businesses at the same time. The handcrafted work of our Juried Artists includes: Basketry, Ceramics, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Leather, Mixed Media, Painting, Paper Craft, Photography, Sculpture, Wood … and so much more!
November 13th & 14th from 10AM to 5PM
Haverford Community Recreation and Environmental Center (CREC)
9000 Parkview Dr., Haverford, PA 19041
Are you ready? (I am … sort of?…)
The last time we were at the CREC for a show it was 2019. Granted, it’s only two years later, but it feels like ages ago. Fortunately, the board and I kept some pretty good notes, so we should be in good shape for our show on the 13th and 14th.
That said – we still need more volunteers!!! Please, please, please consider helping out – even if you are not in the show yourself. Our show is actually twice as long this time, so we really need all the help we can get to make it a success!
One does not have to be a member of the HGC in order to volunteer – everyone is welcome. You can sign up on SignUp Genius here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4BA4A729A2F94-20212
Believe it or not, the Holiday Art & Fine Craft Show isn’t the only thing going on. We also have signups for the Ludington Library display ending soon (so don’t wait! Apply today!). This is a great opportunity to showcase your work, and if someone is interested in purchasing something the library will put you in touch! If you want to apply, click here!
And also keep an eye out because before the end of the week, we will also be putting out a call for artists for our Spring Art & Fine Craft show! This is a great time to start putting together images for 2022 applications. And don’t forget booth shots! Our applications in 2022 will require photos of your booth/display space!
Which brings me to the last bit. This Saturday, November 6th I will be one of the presenters in the next PGC Fine Craft as a Business Workshop. Former Standards VP Paula Lewis will be presenting on pricing your work, including the differences between retail, wholesale and consignment gallery. I will be presenting on how to prepare your photos for a jury with insight into what the jurors are looking for including photos of your work AND your booth!

So ready or not, November here we come!
Thank you all and we’ll see you soon!
Christine Wright, President
