It’s funny how when I start choosing photos for a show’s collage of Rochester Artisans, a theme seems to develop. Usually it’s a color theme, my favorite kind. Today? Animals!

Signage and publicity is a major topic for us on our Rochester Artisans email list.

I’ve seen a good number of signs for this show around the Penfield/Webster area in the last week. They were “homemade” sandwich boards and other durable wood-based signs, with clear, large, legible words. The key to being a useful sign is to use as few words as possible, with just the facts ma’am. Even I’d be tempted to tell how many years (3rd Annual) the show has been running and the precise name of the show. But I think it’s better to use the generic words “Craft Sale”, followed by the address and hours.

It’s tempting to use the yard signs so readily available from VistaPrint and others. And they are certainly better than no signs but I feel like I’ve never seen a yard sign standing up straight! The wind seems to bend them over so they are barely readable!

The sandwich board signs are a one-time investment in time and materials – you can just change the date from year to year.

We have a section on our Biz page dedicated to Show Organizers. One of the best things there is a spreadsheet of PR opportunities. I point every organizer who sends me an application to share with our members, to that page. We’re out to raise the bar on all craft shows and art fairs! The best shows with the best artists are a win/win/win = organizer/artist/customer.

Best wishes for a successful show for all of our Rochester Artisans this coming weekend!

Spectacular II Designs

This is only the second year that outside artists have been invited to sell their beautiful creations at this craft sale and several Rochester Artisans are proud to be among them.

Traditionally, the sale has been famous for the delicious pies baked by The Special Touch Bakery – so popular that there’s a rock-concert-long line, waiting for the sale to open. Their website boasts 17 flavors, though some are seasonal. Darn it, I’m guessing Bumbleberry is a spring/summer pie: raspberries, blueberries and rhubarb!

The Sale also features beautiful handcrafted items made in the agency’s ceramics and woodworking programs.

Holy Childhood provides individualized education, vocational training, clinical services and sheltered workshops for close to 200 individuals from Monroe and the surrounding counties.

Students and adults who make items for the sale have the opportunity to train for the world of work, while making high-quality items in an environment where they can work at their own pace.

The students, adults and volunteers work year-round to prepare for sale which will raise funds for programs and services for children and adults with developmental disabilities.

For more information about any of Holy Childhood’s programs, call (585)359-3710 or visit www.holychildhood.org.
