The  Stowe show features 175 artists and artisans displaying and selling traditional and contemporary crafts  and original art as well as a specialty food section.  The exhibitors are a fascinating group of people. "Meet the artists! Hear their stories! And buy their work," says producer, Tim Cianciola.
While craft shopping,  customers are delighted with great food, live music, and Vermont craft beers served by Idletyme Brewery, all inside a heated dining tent. Besides savoring Vermont food and drink,  there are many craft demos.
Craftproducers is proud to feature  Zhong-Hua Lu as one of its demonstrating exhibitors at this year' show.  Joining him are Vermonters Richard Foye and his compelling Raku pottery demo.  Piper Strong, another Vermonter, will showcase her welding techniques creating a new take on classical masterpieces.


According to organizers of American Craft Week, "While other industry associations have long touted their  products, the craft industry has lacked a single way to be highly visible.  Crafts enrich our homes, wardrobes, offices and public spaces.  The  crafts  industry contributes to our nation's economy and the fabric of our national history. Craft work is  original, beautiful and enduring. "As one craft artist put it, "this is the creative economy!"
