As of this morning, all applicants have been informed of their application status. If you applied and did not see your notification email yet, check your spam folders. If it’s not in there either, send us an email, and we will update you.
Thank you to all who applied! We are excited about the artists that will be at The Handmade Market on November 8th, we thank those who are currently wait-listed for their patience, and are sorry for those who didn’t make it in — we all know how much it hurts to get that “thanks, but sorry” email. This was yet another incredibly impressive batch of applicants, and there were WAY too many talented artists that didn’t even make it onto the wait list this round!
For those of you wait-listed or not accepted into the show, we want to point you to two really well written posts that the Richmond Craft Mafia shared regarding the selection process and sending out these notices for their shows. Their words echo our thoughts and sentiments each and every time we have to send these emails out, and they may help you understand the process a little better or answer any questions you may have. No, reading them will not make it any more fun receiving a wait-list or not-accepted notice, but they may help with the hows and whys involved in the process.
Thanks a million to the Richmond Craft Mafia for sharing these posts.
With love + craftiness,
