PRESS RELEASE: Saline Craft Show Set for Nov. 12
The Saline Craft Show, in its 35th year, is rated as one of the top 10 shows in Michigan. This annual event is hosted on the grounds of Saline Middle School, 7190 N. Maple Road, Saline from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Nov. 12.
Again over 230 craft persons will showcase their most recent and exceptional work which includes decorative painting, stoneware, rugs, birdhouses, holiday decorating ideas, ceramics, calligraphy and clothing. All of these products are designed, made and displayed by the individual crafters and available at affordable prices. All artists will be present and available to customize and personalize their works. This show provides both crafts and art, from the latest in shabby chic to handmade furniture and handpainted clothing. Traveling from 14 states and 155 Michigan cities, they will be selling their own “one-of-a-kind” handcrafted items, and appeal to the frenzied shoppers who line up before the doors open to rush to their favorite booth or discover their newest favorite artist or craft person. 34 new crafters will be joining the show for the first time.
In 2021, this one-day holiday extravaganza attracted over 10,000 customers and brought crafters from throughout the Midwest including Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin as well as Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Pennsylvania.
Shoppers appreciate the show.
“The Saline High Craft Show is a juried craft show to ensure show visitors and shoppers of receiving the highest quality, one-of-a-kind and limited edition work to benefit both our customers and school community," said Grace Greaves, a Manchester resident and long-time craft show attendee. "These crafters’ displays embody skills and reflect respect for both the materials used and the processes. Their handcrafted products feature original designs that can enhance the beauty of the buyer’s environment whether used in the home, garden or personally.”
