Have you been wanting to reach a new online audience to sell your fine craft? How does reaching 1.5 million potential customers sound? If you’re an artist or maker, consider applying to the Citizens of Craft Virtual Market brought to you by Fabrique 1840.
In case you missed it, in our last blog we announced that the Citizens of Craft Virtual Market is a collaboration between Fabrique 1840 and the Canadian Crafts Federation to promote craft artists and expand their online reach. Fabrique 1840 is a vital showcase for handmade products, connecting craft artists with the notoriety and visibility of the broader Simons.ca website.
All Craft Council members are invited to apply to the month-long Citizens of Craft Virtual Market happening October 2021. As a member of your local crafts council, you’re automatically a member of the Canadians Crafts Federation. If you’re unfamiliar with your local craft councils, take a moment to review their membership benefits and requirements.
