Maine Crafts Association is grateful to be learning how to navigate COVID-19 and see Maine reopening in a thoughtful, careful way. They are also grateful to see the continued efforts, conversations and actions of the communities in support of Black Lives Matter, equality and diversity. MCA is working with its board, staff, members and peers on a national level to be part of positive change in our local communities, the craft field and our country. Input and feedback about this is welcome.
MCA Retail Galleries & Resource Centers are now open to the (mask wearing, sanitizer loving) public. Hours are limited but will increase based on how sales and safety goes. To ensure the spaces are open upon arrival, call to check hours beforehand or make an appointment. Open hours, appointments and curbside delivery are all available.
Keep up to date via MCA newsletters and social media for the upcoming launch of SHOP Maine Craft: Maine Crafts Associations Online Gallery, as well as updates and adaptations to MCA’s September and October MCA Guild Fine Craft Shows and other new initiatives.
