Held for the first time on 1978, Celebration of Craftswomen is the largest women’s fine crafts show in the U.S.
The annual event now known as the Celebration of Craftswomen as a small crafts show. Held at the Old Wives’ Tales feminist bookstore on Valencia Street in San Francisco, and organized by Carol Seajay, and Paula Wallace, the event featured 22 craftswomen from the Bay Area and couple of food vendors. The crafts show was a huge success. Even so, no one dreamed it would become the largest and most respected women’s crafts fair in the nation.
The Celebration of Craftswomen benefits The Women’s Building, the first women-owned community center in the U.S. Funds raised support the work of this multi-cultural community center where women and girls achieve self-sufficiency and pursue their dreams.
