The Saline Craft Show, in its 32nd year, is rated as one of the top 10 shows in Michigan. This annual event is hosted on the grounds of Saline Middle School, 7190 N. Maple Road, Saline on November 10 from 8am – 3:30pm. Again over 260 craft persons will showcase their most recent and exceptional work which includes decorative painting, stoneware, rugs, birdhouses, holiday decorating ideas, ceramics, calligraphy and clothing.
All products are designed, made and displayed by the individual crafters and available at affordable prices. All artists will be present and available to customize and personalize their works. This show provides both crafts and art, from the latest in shabby chic to handmade furniture and handpainted clothing. Traveling from 14 states and 155 Michigan cities, they will be selling their own “one-of-a-kind” handcrafted items, and appeal to the shoppers who line up before the doors open to rush to their favorite booth or discover their newest favorite artist or craft-person. This year 34 new crafters will be joining the show for the first time.
Last year, this one-day holiday extravaganza attracted over 10,000 customers and brought crafters from throughout the Midwest including Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin as well as Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Pennsylvania. In a recent Facebook contest, Nicole Sedlock, a Saline Craft Show follower, said “Over the years, I have tried to continue the tradition from my childhood of looking forward to craft shows. I have attended this show for the last three years with my mom. And once we discovered the Saline show (in November) we both were so excited and by the time we left, we were already looking forward to the Spring show.”
The Saline High Craft Show is a juried craft show to ensure show visitors and shoppers of receiving the highest quality, one-of-a-kind and limited-edition work to benefit both our customers and school community. These crafters’ displays embody skills and reflect respect for both the materials used and the processes. Their handcrafted products feature original designs that can enhance the beauty of the buyer’s environment whether used in the home, garden or personally.
Throughout the show, students representing various organizations of Saline High School will be present at a concession stand, bake sale and other activities. The youth groups involved have the opportunity to promote citizenship, practice life skills and leadership, as well as earn money for organized school events. This show benefits student youth groups in the district including cross country, swim, baseball, and track teams, choral groups, and para-professionals.
