Why is the Show juried/curated?

We use the word “jury” because it is commonly used in regard to a professional show. However the term ‘curate’ is more accurate. We receive many more applications than we can accept. Because we respect our exhibitors we strive to produce a quality, handmade only craft show. We do not simply accept every applicant: We limit the number of exhibitors per category; and our makers do not have to compete with imported and mass-produced items as we only accept handmade products. We strive to maintain a high level of quality and variety in those items offered at the show, thus ensuring we do not saturate the show with any one type of craft.

We review all complete applications and then make our choice based on several factors. Please review the Standards Criteria and Eligibility guidelines for more details.
