    Craft Creates…      

    To empower that message, the National ACW Committee has chosen a theme for this year's event, the very first "theme" in ACW's history. The 2015 theme is:

    You are probably ready to complete that sentence now! Most of us involved with craft know it creates beauty, jobs and vibrant communities. And throughout the year, we will be expanding the theme in many directions, so others can share an appreciation of the power and vitality of handmade American craft.

    Our schedule of activities is developing - pls check back!
