Now in its tenth year, American Craft Week is the nation’s largest celebration of handmade American craft. We began with a simple idea: what if EVERYBODY who makes, sells, exhibits, teaches or celebrates American craft–what if we ALL did something at the same time to spotlight an aspect of amazing American craft?

What if we ALL tell the world what craft creates for America: jobs, vibrant communities, economic growth, and an exceptional national heritage and a beautiful aesthetic for our homes and public places.

In early October each year American Craft Week helps you access all these wonderful events across our nation.  We are the vehicle to help the craft industry join together to celebrate all the wonders that are so worthy of investigating, exploring and collecting in our nation.  Join us by going to these events and taking part in this national celebration!

American Craft Week is a major project of CRAFT, the non-profit, trade association of Craft Retailers & Artists for Tomorrow.
