Guild Fine Craft Shows: League of New Hampshire Craftsmen Registration Information

The intent of the Guild Fine Craft Shows, as it was under Maine Crafts Guild management, is to nurture a market place where the public can see, collect and learn about the highest quality craft objects made by Maine’s most dedicated, talented and trained craft artists who have mastered their tools, techniques and vision to create original fine craft objects for everyday use and special occasions. The Guild Fine Craft Shows feature juried fine craft artists in the MCA Guild level of membership. The shows will also include a selection of juried craft artists from the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.

    *After filling out the registration form, you will be asked for a photo of your booth display (via email from lizz@shopmainecraft.com) to coincide with the approval process.
  • 25% Media: In an effort to curate a beautiful (and fair) fine craft show, booth space is also determined by the percentage of media currently registered, which could limit certain registrations. We will inform you asap if this quota has already been met.
  • League members may submit their request to exhibit through a form on the MCA site set up for this purpose and be notified by show staff as early as possible. (Link to the left).
