      Hi Laurie,
      Yes, everyone must resubmit this year as it is a new jury overseeing submissions. Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you. Miners Foundry Staff

      I looked online to get an application, but no where I click can I find one. I would be interested in doing whatever is required to enter the craft fair, but I need the application and list of other requirements. Please send me via email the information. Thank you so much.

        Hi Carol,
        The Summer Craft Fair was on August 7th. Typically the Winter Craft Fair opens for applications two weeks after the Summer Craft Fair. I’ve added you to our vendor contact list, and you should receive an email announcing the Open Call. Thanks!

    Would you please phone me or send and email message with information about how I might set up a display of my paintings at the Nevada City Craft Fair? Would you send me a web link with complete information? Would this be a place where I could set up a boot with my paintings, if not this year, perhaps next year?

    Please inform me at your earliest convenience should there be Booth space available, along with the details- I would be very much interested in coming if the craft fair format includes artists such as me.

    ALSO, please be sure to include me in the advance mailings for the 2014 Nevada City Crafts Fair.
