Tapestry embraces the creative minds of women by inviting area artists and artisans to exhibit their work in the Tapestry Artisan Boutique. Located inside the main exposition area among the sponsor exhibits and the main program area, Tapestry Artisan Boutique exhibitors have a wonderful opportunity to introduce their work to 1,600 attendees in a single day.

Artists and artisans are selected by the Tapestry Boutique Committee based on the quality of their hand-crafted work and the anticipated interest level of the Tapestry guests. The Boutique area sold out in 2017. Please register early for the opportunity to be a part of this fantastic event.

Artists/artisans must submit a six photographs or digital photographs of their work for review along with full payment of $100 by Jan, 12, 2018. Digital photographs can be emailed to tapestry@ipfw.edu.

Booths will be filled according to availability and variety. Should the work not meet the Tapestry Boutique Committee guidelines, a refund for the full amount will be issued to the applying artist. Due to the high demand and popularity of this event, there is a limit of one booth per artisan.

Notification of acceptance will be sent by Feb. 6, 2018. Once an artist/artisan is confirmed as a participant at Tapestry 2018, refunds will not be granted. Accepted boutiques will receive a Tapestry Booth Information Packet with specific details about your booth and extra services that may be requested for minimal fees.
