Grab your passport and come celebrate American Craft Week with us! October 7-16, 2011.

Galleries, studios and businesses throughout Mendocino County will open their doors with special shows, events and demonstrations featuring a vast array of beautiful handmade crafts produced here in Mendocino County.

Your passport is your map to find all of the treasures our artists have to share with you. Have it stamped at each stop and enter our prize drawing. There will be a prize for the most spots visited and one winner drawn from everyone who enters.

It is a great opportunity to get a jump start on your Holiday shopping or to treat yourself to something really special made right here by our local artisans.
