This weekend, More than 700 of the country's leading craft artists will gather under one roof to present their latest designer, handmade work at The American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, the largest juried, indoor craft show in the nation. The highest quality of handmade jewelry, furniture, clothing, home d├ęcor, and more, will be available for purchase at the Baltimore Convention Center, February 25-28, 2010.
The show has also added a new section in the last few years- the DIY/Emerging Artists section - in which a handful of Charm City Craft Mafia folks & Baltimore Etsy Street Team folks will be exhibiting! This section features rising indie crafters whose work illustrates the innovative techniques and materials of the burgeoning new handmade movement, in a shared market-style space. There will also be a section for kids, a section for outdoor sculpture, a demo-section and an exhibit of student work from both Savannah College of Art and RISD.

So glad we could let you know about it Paulette - it's a HUGE fair, so give yourself plenty of time to see it all! You could easily spend all day there!
