Artisans at our partner event the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market report that with their earnings they have been able to purchase land, build new studios, run health clinics, hire teachers, fund schools, pay for school fees and books for their children, and so much more to create positive social change in their communities.
With your help, The Selvedge World Fair will be able to provide direct financial support for artisans who would not be able to attend otherwise. Your name will be listed in the artist’s booth of your choice for 2020 event.
