Entry into our shows is very competitive as applications arrive from artisans who focus on excellence in craftsmanship, resolved design and unique style or voice. Unlike some shows, we will not add booths to meet a quota.

We offer affordable prices for the professional craftsman.


Submissions representing the finest quality craftsmanship are welcome. Application is open to artists and craftsmen nationwide. Membership in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen is required (you may apply for membership with the show application). Juried status is encouraged yet not required.

Standards for displayed works:

All items displayed must be the work of the crafts-person of record and must conform to PGC Standards: excellence in craftsmanship, resolved design and a unique voice or style. Our shows feature original materials by fine professionals, and therefore, assemblages, embellishments, commercial products, or work made from commercially available kits are not eligible. Consumables such as, but not limited to: vinegars, soaps, lotions, perfumes and candles are not eligible. Prints may comprise up to 20% of the display, and must be limited edition. Photography must also be limited edition. No “seconds” or “sale” signs permitted. All shows are floor juried. Work displayed must be representative of your submitted application or you will be asked to remove it. Failure to comply with stated rules or a misrepresentation of work may result in expulsion from the show.

Jewelry as Adjunct: For those who have a primary craft (i.e. pottery) and also wish to display same category jewelry. Four additional images required. You may only display work that is accepted. It is possible that your primary craft may be accepted while your jewelry is not.
