We all could use a little dough in our pocket so we can keep on crafting, right? Well, let's not forget that there are people out there willing to give us some. Now, I hate sharing this for fear of hurting my chances (which were slim to none anyway) but the Maryland State Arts Council is offering a grant to crafts artists this year! The application deadline is July 31. While you are there, why not add yourself to the Artist Registry too!I recently picked up a copy of The Directory of Grants for Crafts which includes a ton of grant info specific to crafts! Can't hurt to have this in your library!
