FAIR GUIDELINES
All work exhibited and offered for sale
must be created by the exhibiting craft person. The resale of any item produced by another, commercial or handcrafted, does not meet this fair’s requirements. These items include:

  • Embellished or altered items substantially created/manufactured by another.
  • Items made from kits.
  • Items made substantially from electronically operated machines (for example, items produced by electronically operated knitting or weaving machines, even if the machine is operated by the exhibitor).
  • Prints and photographs are acceptable only if the original was created by the crafter.

The Old Red Church screening committee is responsible for the maintenance of the “original, handmade” criteria and may question crafters if there are concerns about whether or not crafters meet the criteria. 

In view of these general guidelines, if there is any doubt about the acceptance of your items, please contact The Old Red Church at louel@fairpoint.net to discuss the situation. Please bear in mind that these rules were created to preserve the integrity of our fair. Compliance with these guidelines and rules will impact future invitations to participate in the fair.
