HISTORY

Beginning in 2020, the Maine Crafts Association assumed management of four fine craft shows previously managed by the Maine Crafts Guild, which ran the shows for over forty years! Of course, they were all cancelled due to COVID but the Maine Crafts Association organized three of the four back in 2021 on similar dates / locations as they have been held in the past.

The two organizations joined together as one Maine craft organization offering all the programs, events and initiatives previously offered by each separate organization. In 2022 the Guild Shows and other Maine Crafts Association shows and markets (and galleries and webshop) make up Shop Maine Craft.

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.
