for the  48th Annual Craft Fair at Bonny Eagle High School


The fair takes place at Bonny Eagle High School, located at 700 Saco Road in Standish, Maine (see map below).  

The Craft Fair at Bonny Eagle High School features exclusively handmade crafts including: jewelry, ceramics, stained glass, paintings, ornaments, candles, quilts, specialty foods, and much, much more! The fair is sponsored by the Trustees of the Old Red Church in Standish, Maine, and serves as the organization's largest fundraising event. All proceeds from the fair support the maintenance of The Old Red Church and school programs, including scholarships awarded to Bonny Eagle High School seniors.

 

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.
