Why this is a don't-miss show for DFW artists

What makes our spring and fall shows so popular for artists?  As the Craft Guild is an organization of artists, our shows are designed by artists for artists:

  • We do the marketing for you.  We advertise in the Dallas Morning News, we mail postcards and post flyers, create email and social media campaigns, and more.   
  • We take care of the details for you.  We supply the tables & tablecloths, we professionally wrap and package your sold items, we handle payments, and we even take care of compiling and filing the sales tax. In short, we make it really easy for you.
  • It's a rain or shine event.  Have you ever entered a spring show, only to have rain keep the crowds away and ruin your display? No such worries here for you, and our customers know they can confidently plan their weekend around the show.
  • You don't have to be there all weekend.  Because we ask artists to work just 3 shifts during the event, you don't have to give up your entire weekend.  If you have a family event to plan around, just select your shifts accordingly.  Your art keeps selling while you're away.

We hope you'll consider applying for The Craft Guild's 2018 Fall Show and Sale - it's going to be a fantastic event and an exciting milestone in our 70th anniversary year. Questions? Just email us at, we'll be happy to help.
