PLEASE READ FIRST!
Lydia’s Guild invites you to apply for participation in our 38th Holiday Craft Show. All artists and crafters, both new and returning, will be juried for the 2020 show. We are still planning to host the show at its usual dates and times, but please understand that we may need to make adjustments to the structure of the show in accordance with local government gathering restrictions and social distancing limitations. If we feel that we cannot host the show due to the health crisis, registration and table fees will be refunded.
All applicants are required to submit an application, a non-refundable application fee, and a registration fee. Due to concerns with Covid-19, we are not requiring payment of the registration fee until closer to the show date. Accepted crafter will be notified of this payment date when it is determined.
New crafters, or crafters that are wanting to jury new items, must submit by email 5 digital photographs of their work, along with one digital image of their expected display. Printed photos will not be accepted.
Applications are juried in groups at the end of each month, with the exception of jewelry. Due to the high volume of jewelry applications we receive, these will be juried beginning in June. Your application will not be reviewed until all applicable fees have been submitted. Notification of your acceptance will be provided following each jurying session. For the 2020 show, all acceptances will be transmitted via email.
