American Craft Made

American Craft Made

Shop for craft and meet inspiring artists at one of our in-person marketplace events.

American Craft Made marketplaces bring craft artists and their work to you from across the country. Join us annually in Baltimore and St. Paul, Minnesota, to discover beautiful handmade pieces and hear the story of how they were made straight from the person who made them.

Formerly known as our American Craft Shows, American Craft Made is a nonprofit ACC program designed to support artists in their practice and connect people to craft.

COVID-19 Policy for American Craft Made / St. Paul

The safety of our artists, staff, and guests is our top priority as we return to St. Paul this fall. ACC will be implementing the following policy for our American Craft Made marketplace to minimize the risk and spread of COVID-19. Our safety protocols are subject to change as federal, state, and city recommendations evolve. Updated July 8, 2022.

  • For Attendees – While COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended for individuals attending events, we do not plan to require vaccination status (nor require a negative COVID-19 test for those unvaccinated) to attend American Craft Made / St. Paul.
     
    Masks are strongly recommended for all attendees, artists, and staff.
     
  • For Exhibiting Artists – We will continue to follow vaccination requirement protocols to mitigate risk and create a safe work space for artists and staff. We are requiring that all exhibitors show proof of a completed COVID-19 vaccination upon check in at the show. Proof of vaccination may include a physical card—or a photo of a complete vaccination card—that matches the artist or visitor’s ID and with their final dose dated at least 14 days prior to the event. View the latest CDC vaccine guidelines.
     
    Again, masks are strongly recommended for all attendees, artists, and staff.
