Maine Crafts Guild celebrates 40 years

BAR HARBOR - Maine Crafts Guild's MDI 'Directions' Fine Craft Show is turning 40 this year. The centrally located Mount Desert Island High School on Route 233 in Bar Harbor has been the location of the Directions Show for all four decades. Over the years it has become a celebration of summer for all the townships and summer visitors in the region. Only once a year (July 24-26), this event is not to be missed if you enjoy fine crafts work inspired by living in Maine.

In 1975 the Maine Crafts Guild was established in a spirit of cooperation with the goal of bringing the finest professional craftspeople together with those who appreciate hand made products. The organization's commitment to excellence in fine craft has never faltered. Members of the Guild have one thing in common, a passion to create. Some focus on pushing the limits of their work, some on learning traditional methods from the elders of their craft, some are attracted to handwork because of the quality of life it engenders, while others are interested in having a positive cultural impact.
