Hello all. I know that I have seen a publication listing upcoming
shows and exhibitor such as contact info, booth costs,
number of vendors and the type of customers the show is likely to
attract. Does anyone know what publication this is, and how I can
order it? I believe it was published in Florida somewhere.

Surprisingly, I didn’t see anything in the archives.

Thanks -
Allison

that is “sunshine artist” magazine you heard about. go online to
http://www.sunshineartist.com - there’s a site for subscribing to
the monthly publication; worth much more than the reasonable yearly
price. other pubs have some of the but not actual
participating artists sending ‘audits’ to the publisher with real
evaluations of shows all over the country covering everything from
weather to staff to quality & attendance it’s a very classy
industry asset.

who thinks it isn’t as much what is written as it is who wrote it.

I believe the publication you are referring to is called Sunshine
Artist. You can contact their customer service at 1-800-597-2573 or I
am sure they have a website. Also, on occasion you can find it in a
good library or bookstore.

Sunshine Artist Magazine
Subscription Price: $49.49

There is a resource called The Art Fair Source Book by Greg Lawler
at http://www.artfairsourcebook.com. It has detailed assessment of
the shows including the contact info, costs etc. It is available in
print or they offer a very handy online version as well.

Another resource is the Designers Annual Planning Guide produced by
Cindy Edelstein and Frank Stankus that has on design
competitions, trade publications, trade shows, craft fairs and more.
They can be reached at http://www.jewelersresource.com.

I think you mean “Sunshine Magazine”. There is also another one
"Craftsfair Guide" which is mainly for the Westcoast.

My experience with the annual Sunshine Artist art show review
publication was not favorable. I found much of the to be
obsolete, contact numbers lead no-where. If it were up to date,
this would be a wonderful resource!

Hi All;

I subscribe to “Craft Report” published by the American Craft
Council. I find it to be a very usefull and informative publication.
It’s full tips on everything from taxes to digital photo to booth
display, whatever pertinent to the craft business. Lots of great
articles and images too. It has listings every month of all the
upcoming craft show of note. I’m not in my office right now, so I
don’t have a copy handy, but I’m sure you could Google the ACC and
get info on subscribing. It’s not very expensive.

The Sunshine Artist website has a good deal for their annual magazine
subscription and audit book, “IF” you are in the USA. They apparently
do not cater to Canadians or artists abroad!!

I tried to apply for their web combo offer and only after entering
all my personal data did the disclaimer show up “US delivery only:
$80.00” They did not state anywhere whether Canadian Artists could
get the magazine but would have to pay addition shipping to Canada
nor did they have International mailing rates.

Have any Canadians been successful in getting ther magazine
subscription in Canada?

Unless there is a publication called “The Craft Report”, without an
"s" on the word Craft, the Crafts Report is not published by the
ACC, as far as I know.

ACC website here: http://www.craftcouncil.org.

The Crafts Report website here: http://www.craftsreport.com

   . . . the Crafts Report is not published by the ACC, as far as I
know. ACC website here: http://www.craftcouncil.org. The Crafts
Report website here: http://www.craftsreport.com 

Hi Christine;

Thank you for that correction. The Crafts Report (with an “S”) is
published by Crafts Report Publications, costs $29US a year, $52US
for 2 years, for monthly delivery. The American Craft Council
publishes American Craft, another excellent magazine. I haven’t seen
much in it in the manner of a calendar of craft shows, but some
might be listed in their calendar of gallery exhibits. Very nice
images in that magazine, good articles on crafts, some on the
business aspects. I subscribe to both and find both magazines
worthwhile. BTW, American Craft magazine is bi-monthly, and comes
with membership in the ACC for $30US a year.

Disclaimer: I am not being encouraged or compensated by either ACC or
Crafts Report to recommend them.
