Calling All Crafters: North Parish Red Bow Fair
The following was submitted by North Parish Church.
For over 20 years the North Parish Red Bow Fair, held at the North Parish of North Andover, has attracted large crowds of enthusiastic holiday shoppers. Held each year on the first Saturday in December (Dec. 3, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.), the fair includes a variety of juried crafts, a Silent Auction, holiday greens, gifts baskets, baked goods, quilt and wine drawings, used books and media, and the ever popular luncheon.
ELIGIBILITY: We are seeking amateur and professional crafters selling original work. All crafters will be chosen through a juried selection process. When choosing crafts we consider the craft’s quality, uniqueness and whether it will add diversity to the selection at the fair. We reserve the right to limit the number of crafts by type.
SPACE: Each crafter will have approximately 5’ x 8’ of floor space. 6’ tables and electricity are available. Additional information will be provided with your acceptance notice.
APPLICATION: If you wish to apply, download the application from the front page of the church website – northparish.org – or contact one of the co-chairs listed below. Submit your completed application, along with a space fee of $65, and photos of your work (or a link to a website with photos) to North Parish of North Andover, 3 Great Pond Road, North Andover, MA 01845 ATTN: Outside Crafters.
All applications must be received by September 1, 2011, to be considered in our juried process. Notification of participation in the fair will be mailed to you no later than September 30, 2011. No application will be considered without photographs or website address. Your check will be returned if you are not selected for this year’s fair. If you want your photos returned, please include a self-addressed envelope with adequate postage.
