It's that time again. Ready your hands, because Crafeteria is back.
The First Friday event will feature more than 40 local artists and their handmade goods, as well as live music presented by Stinkweeds.
The best part is, Crafeteria is open to local artists and creative types, so anyone can apply for a spot.
In order to be considered, you hopefuls need to fill out an online application that's downloadable via Frances' website. The application must include at least three photos of your work, a description of what it is you are selling, and a bio. For your work to stand out among others, Frances suggests that it be completely handmade, of high quality, and unique.
All applications are due by Friday, November 1. Because of the volume of applications Frances receives, applicants will be selected through a juried process and the winners will be notified by Thursday, November 7.
There are 40 spots available, and the selected artists will be given a space at the event to show off and sell their wares.
The free craft festival gives Arizona art appreciators a chance to admire some of the best paper goods, accessories, paintings, jewelry, knit items, and more from some of the best local artists.
To download the online application and for more information on the application process, visit Frances' website.
The craft festival is free and open to the public.
