Where do you go to find wonderful handmade American craft? We are searching across America for the Top Ten Towns for Craft Lovers. We want to identify those places with an abundance of craft artisans, great craft galleries, and fantastic festivals.
Perhaps you have visited such a place, or are lucky enough to live there! Let us know by casting your vote. You can vote once a day, so come back often.
If your favorite craft town isn’t on our list, there’s a place for write-ins. Rally your local friends and neighbors, and your suggestion could end up with a spot on our list!
Voting ends August 30, 2015. We will be awarding the designations September first!

Get your PUBLIC LIBRARY involved in ACW
Ask them to display CRAFT books during ACW along with the ACW logo. Perhaps they could include a local artist's work, or sponsor a craft demonstration or workshop. If your community has a lot going on, ask them to include a local ACW event schedule, too. There will be no charge for libraries to participate in ACW, and a Library Info Sheet will be available on our website soon! To sign up, libraries should use this form.
