DT Mesa Fest

DT Mesa Fest 2018 Information

The DT Mesa Fest (Downtown Mesa Festival of the Arts) formerly Mesa Arts & Crafts Festival (MACFest) is December 8 & 9. This will be our fifth year, and we will once again have a double booth for you to display and sell your wonderful fiber creations.

Our outstanding high-quality fiber artwork, and booth presentation and
design has achieved 1st or 2nd place awards three times! This is a juried
show, which speaks volumes to the level of excellence of our best
handmade items. As in past years, each artist marks and prices her/his
own items. We can’t accept items that were in the booth prior to 2017.
The entrance fee $20 is each person and Telarana keeps 15% of all sales,
which means you keep 85%! We need high priced, medium priced and
low-priced items to fit the pocketbooks of the many people who visit our
booth.  

This is a fun event with a wonderful opportunity for us to show and educate the public on what we do — and do so well! Once again, we will have a demonstration area right next to our booth attracting Fest attendees to see and learn.

I can’t wait to see all the beautiful, creative items our members make.

It takes a lot of work (and fun) to put this on each year. Please consider joining one of the show committees or talk to Cindy Reynolds about coordinating the 2018 event.

On December 9 and 10, 2017 Telaraña will again have a booth, make that a double booth, at the Mesa Arts and Craft Fair. We are very proud to participate in this juried show with our best handmade items.  The last four years have been very successful grossing almost $6000 in 2016.  Over the past two years we sold approximately 190 items entered by 20 to 24 members.  As in past years, each artist marks and prices her/his own items.  Inventory forms will be available later in the fall. Remember, you can only submit items that didn’t sell last year or the year earlier, but none older.  The entry fee is $20/person and Telaraña keeps 15% of all sales, which means you keep 85%!  Let’s make this the best show ever. There will be a “intention to submit” sign-up sheet at the September and October meetings.

It takes a lot of work (and fun) to put this on each year. Please consider joining one of the show committees or talk to Cindy Reynolds about coordinating the 2018 event.
