Updates to Craftboston Spring...

Our friends at Tandem Glass shared this sentiment:  "Art heals and breaks down divisions between people. Art creates community, and revels in love and light even when there is darkness."
To help raise money to assist families most affected by this tragic event, SAC will donate $1 of every Craftboston ticket sold this weekend to

Due to the circumstances beyond our control in the greater Boston area, Craftboston at the Seaport World Trade Center will be closed on Friday, April 19, 2013.  We currently expect the show to be open to the public on Saturday from 10am-6pm and Sunday 11am-5pm.  We will post another update around 8:00am Saturday morning.
Our hearts go out to all those affected by this event, and our well wishes are with the men and women of law enforcement.
All the best,
Beth Ann Gerstein
Executive Director
