Greg Little replied to Steve Sawusch's discussion Craft show jury fees: Is there normally one?

"Oh, that's funny! I pay a processing fee to a show where I am fortunate enough that I do not need to go through the jurying. Same price as the jury fee."

What is your website?
http://www.USscenics.com
Worst show ever and why
All in my opinion

Art On The Rockies - Edwards, CO (They may call it Vail, CO but it is not)
- Extremely low traffic count that was only a small % of stated attendance. Way too many artists for this size crowd.

Sloan's Lake - Pulled out before it was a complete disaster. Show was run by Danna Tullis of Colorado Event Design. Just search on AFI to find more opinions about her shows including one in Salida, Parker and Longmont.

Hi Steve, I believe we met at the Vail Art Festival correct?

If anyone complains about the Edwards show, I guess we can reply "We told you so". They have to be a dumber than dirt optimist  to do it IMO.
