I’m very involved in helping Sara Senour organize this show so I wanted to share some background information. This is the 3rd annual for this show – and this time it’s juried! That means the scores of 3 outside jurors were used to determine the finest selection of artisans you will see at the show. The jurors assigned a value of 1-5, using 5 different criteria.
We were also very grateful to be able to use the services offered by the public relations person that works for the local corporate office of the YMCA. With the help of their graphic designers, we’re very happy with our “branded” look that will follow the show for years to come.
On a personal note, I’m happy to report that the Rochester Artisans listed above account for 60% of the total artists in the show. I love numbers and I know you love Fun Facts.
Noteworthy things to mention for customers, also new this year:
Passport Program. Each visitor will receive a program upon entering the show. The centerfold is printed with a layout of the artisan spaces, including booth number. Customers are encouraged to have each artist they visit, initial their little space on the map. Customers who obtain 30 initials, out of 42 artists, are then eligible for the drawing of 3 fabulous prizes. (Prizes are gift certificates to Target, Peoples Pottery and Craft Co No. 6.)
The Irondequoit Art Club will be hosting their show (with demonstrations) in the Lily Cafe, just steps from the gym where the craft show is. The FCTT HiRailers will be demonstrating model railroading. And there is complimentary child care is available.
Lastly, there will also be 2 food sales going on at the Maplewood Y that day as well. One is an International Food Sale with sampling of cuisines from around the world. The second is a Bake Sale with all sorts of sweet treats for sale.
