About the Craft Show
Every year since 1989, the guild puts on a fun, festive, fall craft show. The Fall 2019 Craft Show included a craft auction, demos, & craft workshops for children & adults, as well as a selection of handcrafted items including jewelry, paintings, purses, holiday decor, floral, crochet, & more! Partial proceeds are donated to a different charity each year – last year we donated to Santa’s Helpers! Unfortunately due to COVID-19, this year’s craft show is postponed until next year.
Each year, we donate partial proceeds from the craft show to a charity. Below are some of the many charities we’ve donated to over the years:
- Santa’s Helpers
- SOS 4 Kidz
- Shriners Hospital for Children
- PA Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home
- Inner City Neighborhood Art House
- Make-a-Wish Foundation
- Second Harvest Food Bank
- Mercy Center for Women
- Special Olympics
- Red Cross
- Girl Scouts
- Broken Arrow Animal Refuge & Care
- NWPA Autism Society of America
- Erie Zoo
- ANNA Shelter
Info for Crafters
Our Fall Craft Show is usually held at the end of October. To be eligible for a craft show, you must be a current member in good standing, and have no overdue Erie Guild of Craftsmen library books. All items displayed must be handcrafted by the Guild member. Absolutely nothing for resale.
A sliding scale is used to determine the table fees of our shows. The qualifying meetings for the current year’s show include September through December of the previous year, and January through June of the current year. Each member signs their own name in a log when attending a Guild meeting for verification of the number of meetings they attend.
