Support American Craft Week on Kickstarter

American Craft Week launched its first Kickstarter fundraiser earlier this week.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with Kickstarter, this is a "crowdfunding" web platform devoted to creative projects. 

Our goal in the coming year is to expand American Craft Week by reaching Arts Councils, Arts Districts, and Visitors' Bureaus and those who are looking for events geared to cultural tourism.  This Kickstarter can provide the funds for printing an exciting American Craft Week Kit to reach out to these groups.

The idea is that if lots of people support our project with a little money, it will add up to what we need to launch ACW 2014.

You can support us at any level.  We truly appreciate any and all pledges. 

Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing proposition.  We will not be funded at all unless we raise at least $3,000.  Your card will not be charged until the project is totally funded.

The names of all funders will be listed on the ACW website. At each level there are also some pretty fine craft items you can earn as rewards for your participation.

The American Craft Week committee has spent hundreds of hours planning this Kickstarter, writing the scripts, filming, developing graphics, choosing the rewards and guiding us through the maze of requirements during set-up.  We appreciate your feedback and support!  Please help us launch an amazing American Craft Week 2014!

Please take a close look at our project.  Log on now and pledge your support

And feel free to spread the word for us. Share the project with your friends! Share it on Facebook & Twitter! Every little bit helps! 

Thank you so much!
