This fall, Americans in over 40 states, including Vermont, will be celebrating the art of handmade craft. From Oct. 4 to 13, American Craft Week will feature hundreds of diverse events in galleries and artist studios, museums and schools, as well as at fairs and festivals.

Leaf peepers coming to Vermont and residents can experience color outside and inside at the many American Craft Week celebrations. The State of Vermont is a major sponsor with participating activities and events including Fall Open Studio Weekend, October 5 and 6 with 127 sites participating. Other participants include the 35th Anniversary of the Putney Craft Tour Nov 29, 30 and Dec 1), the Craftproducers art and craft festivals in Manchester (Oct 4-6) and Stowe (Oct 11-13), Vermont Artisan Designs, the Bennington Arts Guild, Readsboro Glassworks Open Studio (Oct 5 & 6), among others.

"American Craft enriches our homes, wardrobes, offices and public spaces. It contributes to our nation's economy, our balance of trade, and the fabric of our national history," says Diane Sulg, a board member of the Craft Retailers & Artists for Tomorrow and co-chair of American Craft Week. "By taking part in the celebration, people are joining in on the trend of buying artisan and locally made products."
