2017 Spring Sponsors
This show wouldn’t happen without our supportive sponsors and partners who believe in growing the handmade movement in our lovely city:
ArtWorks is an award-winning non-profit organization that employs and trains local youth and talent to create art and community impact. We are stoked to have them onsite for the show. Stop by and say hi to them!
Cincinnati Art Museum
The Cincinnati Art Museum located in Eden Park features a diverse, encyclopedic art collection of more than 67,000 works spanning 6,000 years. We are excited to have them on site on April 29th!
DIY Printing aims to enrich the lives of artists by providing an open printing studio that supports and encourages the work of artists. DIY provides awareness, outreach and education for the community.
Fat Quarter, named for a special cut of fabric, offers mobile sewing classes at fun locations around Greater Cincinnati. The classes are for beginners as well as experienced seamstresses, and each participant will complete a project to take home! Fat Quarter will also cater to those looking to have an in-home sewing party to celebrate a birthday, bridal shower, or just a fun night in!
Midwest Craft Con
Midwest Craft Con is a three-day retreat for mid-career crafters, makers and creative business owners, featuring inspirational keynote addresses, thought-provoking panel discussions, hands-on workshops and business-focused breakout sessions from experts from Ohio, the Midwest and beyond.
Our official longest standing sponsor! NVISION is a Cincinnati-based independent retail shop selling vintage & designer clothing, art, furnishings, alongside handcrafted items by local artists and designers.
Queen City Clay
Our newest sponsor! Queen City Clay is a clay studio who want to foster the man impulse to create. How cool does that sound?!? They will be on site on April 29th. Stay tuned for more information. We are stoked!

Spring show sponsor deadline: April 1
To help our homegrown indie craft show exist and expand, we seek support from local and DIY-friendly businesses. Crafty Supermarket’s spring 2017 show will have 50 crafters, makers and artisans from the city and beyond. We’re expecting more than 2,000 shoppers — who love buying handmade, local and sustainable — and we’d like to connect you with them.
Our show programs (at least 1,000 will be printed) have information about our crafters, plus information and ads from sponsors. Sponsoring Crafty Supermarket includes a listing on our website and an ad in the program, plus opportunities to have materials in our swag bags and signage on site at the show. Contact us if you’re interested in sponsoring Crafty Supermarket!
We’ll be giving away 130 swag bags to the first lucky shoppers of the day and our trusty volunteers. If you’d like to contribute promo items for your local business or crafty enterprise, please contact us!
What makes for great swag? Ideally, the items should be fun while promoting your business! Some past swag items include buttons, product samples, mini prints, coupons, magnets and pencils. Please make sure your swag will stay in one piece and does not have any protruding pins or melting candy — we build the swag bags by hand!
