Crafts America LLC, a top independent presenter of fine craft shows nationally since 1988, is recognized for both the quality of artists exhibiting and appealing ambiance of its shows. Each year artists have competed by jury for places at three prestigious venues: the Washington Craft Show 1988 - 2014 at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC. The Westchester Craft Show, 1994 – 2012, White Plains, NY. The Palm Beach Fine Craft Show, since 2004 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, FL. Crafts America LLC is headquartered in Greens Farms, CT.
To participate in Crafts America shows, artists must live and work in the United States. They must demonstrate masterful technique and exceptional contemporary interpretation. Many participating artists are represented in important corporate and private as well as museum collections, such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Corning Museum of Glass. Each year a new panel of distinguished judges assess the highly competitive pool of applicants on the basis of technical skill, quality of workmanship, and originality of design.
Crafts America shows are designed for knowledgeable collectors as well as discriminating shoppers who appreciate high quality and original design. The location of these shows on the East Coast and in Florida offers a large, sophisticated audience the opportunity to meet important artists and select from a significant body of their newest work. These top locations also provide special opportunities for artists to expand their customers and sales in major marketplaces.

Dear Friends and Artists,
After much consideration and with a heavy heart, we are retiring the Washington Craft Show after 27 years. It has been an amazing experience to work with so many wonderful and gifted artists who have been a part of this highly visible event in the Washington, DC marketplace. We did not arrived at this decision easily as the Washington show has been Crafts America's flagship show since its inception. The unique talent and beautiful work brought to this show over the years helped to make it one of the most respected shows in the country. We are most grateful to those who have, in many different ways, been a part of its success over those years!
We are looking forward to the 12th annual Palm Beach Fine Craft Show in 2015 and to continuing to making it grow and excel in the years to come! Please see more information on the upcoming show on this website.
