Thank you to our event partner CERF+

CERF+ – The Artists Safety Net – was started by artists for artists at an American Craft Show in 1985. The brainchild of Carol Sedestrom Ross, founder and CEO of American Craft Enterprises and then senior vice president of the American Craft Council, and celebrated glass artist Josh Simpson, CERF+ has evolved from its modest beginnings into a leading national service organization that uniquely focuses on safeguarding artists’ livelihoods nationwide. CERF+ serves artists who work in craft disciplines by providing a safety net to support strong and sustainable careers. From its start, CERF+ has worked closely with ACC and its artists, and ACC continues to support the mission of CERF+ with the donation of American Craft Show booths for CERF+ artists in need.

Thank you to our sponsors
