Crafts festival returns to the Greater Philadelphia area

October 25, 2013 by  

The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is back in the Greater Philadelphia area for three days this November, no doubt attracting thousands of visitors each year as it usually does.

The festival is expected to feature more than 250 artisans and crafters who will be selling items such as sculpture, jewelry, fashion and furniture. The artisans will also be presenting demonstrations on their crafts, which might feature the likes of wheel-thrown pottery, jewelry making, and papermaking.

Children can also take part in lots of fun activities, such as costume storytelling and theater. Food vendors will also be on hand to sell refreshments, as well as homemade specialty foods.

The festival is a good opportunity for those working in the arts and crafts industry to introduce their works to the greater population, and is well timed for anyone looking to start their Christmas shopping early.

People from all over Greater Philadelphia will probably flock to the festival, including those from nearby Royersford. Local printing companies can provide flyers to help the organizers advertise throughout the area, and vendors would be wise to prepare a digital business card printing order so that they have a chance to make a name for themselves..

The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks from November 1-3. Admission is $8 in advance or $10 at the gate, or free for children aged 12 and under, and this covers all three days. To find out more about the festival, call 1-800-210-9900.
