Celebration of American Crafts Volunteers

The Celebration of American Crafts Committee has been hard at work planning the 48th annual sale, exhibit, and fundraiser. We invited back your favorite artists from the past, welcomed new ones from the local and New England regions, and added some fun events!

But we are still missing one crucial element … you!

With our exciting Celebration of American Crafts underway, we are looking to train volunteers who have this same enthusiasm! All Celebration volunteers will receive a 5% discount on merchandise and discounted parking in the public garage next to CAW.
