Hey guys,

Wanted to share a new website with you.  It's dfwcraftshows.com

Over the last year, I started attending local craft shows, and I immediately realized how much time and effort it takes to simply stay on top of all the many Arts & Crafts Shows that are going on around us. There are ample opportunities in North Texas to showcase and sell our handmade goods, but finding them can be extremely difficult and exhausting! It's all about constantly searching the internet, local organizations, and networking. So I figured, why not start our own network on one of the largest networking sites online (Facebook) and share our individual show knowledge to build one giant Arts & Craft show database!

I created (DFW Craft Shows) and the (DFWCS Facebook Page) as a networking tool between artists, crafters, and shoppers who are looking for local show information. I want to create a community where we can share our information and help insure that every artist, crafter, and shopper is aware of all the opportunities to sell and shop local! Not to mention the fact that we will be giving that much more attention to those small shows that are struggling to get off the ground. If we can make them great, they will be back year after year, and those opportunities will continue to grow.

There is a blog where I post all the show information, a Facebook page that gets vendor alerts, new show alerts, and deadline alerts.  Plus its a great place to post your new shows so I can add them to the universal calendar.  That's right, I have a calendar that lists all the shows I am aware of, plus application deadline dates.  You can view the calendar, copy items off of it, set your own reminders etc.  You can also visually see what is going on during the weekend of a show, and which shows conflict.

So, become a fan! Post or Email me your shows! I will gather up the information and: post them on the site, add them to our universal calendar, link to them on our Facebook page, and continue to distribute the info as best I can! That's it!  Hope to see you there Smiley
