In 2020, the Maine Crafts Association assumed management of the Guild Fine Craft Shows, a series of events originally created and managed by the Maine Crafts Guild for over forty years. The two organizations united to form a single Maine craft organization, launching Shop Maine Craft in 2022. The Guild Fine Craft Shows remain a vital marketplace where the public can experience, collect, and learn about quality craft objects created by a dedicated membership of talented and skilled artists.
