Crafthaus goes to ... ACC Baltimore


Next week, Brigitte Martin (crafthaus editor) will spend time at the ACC Show in Baltimore. She will report back from three distinct viewpoints:


Brigitte's personal experience as a first-time visitor taking in 670 artists for the retail portion of the show. Camera in hand and walking boots on!


The artist's viewpoint: Laura Jaklitsch (jewelry) shares her insight into all that goes into preparing for a professional show, her thoughts on booth display, sales and the camaraderie between show artists.


The ACC show director's viewpoint: Melanie Little offers a glimpse behind the scenes, describing what it takes to put up a craft show that brings in twenty thousand visitors for the retail portion alone.


Anything you want to ask Laura, Melanie or Brigitte? Join the discussion group and post your questions or just be along for the ride!
