Linnea Lahlum replied to Steve Sawusch's discussion Craft show jury fees: Is there normally one?
"I would confront them on it. If they allow buy-sell, do they even have a jury? The "jury fee" started as the fee to cover the costs of an actual outside paid jury. If no jury, then there should not be a jury fee. Let them call it an…"

Applying my logo to fabric : know a company that does this?

I am looking for a person or company that can print, machine embroider, or silk screen my logo on FABRIC. I need to choose the fabric: it will be stitched at intervals into other patterned fabric panels for my display.I found one commercial company that does this, but their fabric choices are all white, and they work only on their own.  My logo is just black, so that part is not too hard. I would appreciate any leads. Thanks!See More

Excellent post of the day, Linnea! Thank you. I hope everyone who feels beaten down by the jury system reads it.

Congratulations, Linnea. You have chosen you as an "art star" for your continuous generosity in sharing your expertise, personal experience, and friendly support to the members of this community.

And the trophy goes to Linnea! Once again cutting through the words and explaining so clearly what everyone needs to hear. Good job on your recent comment at "Crafter Police".

Hi, Linnea!  Connie suggested I leave a comment for you... Coming from the Chicagoland area, what do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show?  Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them?  Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show.  Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated!  Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!


Warmest regards!

Thank you for your response. I have realized from perusing this site that there are just so many issues that I have never considered. I appreciate the advice from all of you who have been in the business.

Hi Linnea! I was looking for information about Artfest Midwest, and saw your post about booth recommendations. Since you did the show last year, do you have any booth location recommendations?

Thanks Lin for weighing in on A-RTS. These shows pay me, of course, to have their information shared and to have this one get such reviews from you is great! I appreciate it.

Hi Linnea...I'm exhausted tonight. I will call the hotel and see if they will accept your name instead of mine. It's a Country Inn and Suites which are nice. I'll get it done by 10:30 central time. Call me! 770 843 4604

Hi Linnea, not sure if you got my other messages, I seem to have a hard time manuvering around this site. I'm sure you're busy with shows right now.
