Hamburg, New York (PressExposure) November 03, 2009 -- During the year, the event organisers travel the country to find the top craftspeople for the show. Four hundred craftsmen from 27 states (plus Canada) present their goods to about 50,000 visitors over the course of four days.
The breadth of items offered is suggested by the extensive list of categories on the fair's website - from baby items to woolen goods, by way of ceramics, lamp shades, goose garb (quilted items), porcelain, primitives, slates and wrought iron.
