Arkansas Craft Guild Application for Membership
The Guild was incorporated as a cooperative in 1962 to promote and preserve the traditional crafts of Arkansas, as well as build a market for high quality handmade products, and to provide a collaborative environment where craftsmen and women could share information and explore further development of their art. The Guild sponsors the Christmas Showcase the first weekend of December at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds Hall of Industry in Little Rock, and 2 Artisans Markets on the Square in Mountain View – at Folk Festival in April and Bean Fest at the end of October. Members are guaranteed acceptance into these shows, receive discounted booth fees and are given booth location preferences over non members participating in the show.
