Attention Jewelry Artisans: Please read through our jewelry rules to make sure you qualify before submitting your membership application. Because of the number of jewelers in our organization, we hold a lottery for spaces in January. Usually ALL show spaces (with the exception of Cumberland) for jewelry are filled at that time. The chances of new jewelers getting into a show after the January lottery is very slight. Please submit membership applications in late December or early January in order to qualify for the lottery.
The benefits of membership: + The opportunity to participate in UMC's seven well established shows. + The knowledge that UMC allows only hand crafted items made by Maine artisans in their shows. + Having a voice in running the organization through your vote, attending meetings and running for office. + The opportunity to network with other Maine artisans. + A free listing on UMC's website with two photos of your work and a link to your website. + The exciting opportunity to have your own member webpage, featuring your products. + Staying informed through your free subscription to UMC's quarterly e-newsletter "The Craft Tradesman"
