My First Rejection Letter

Dear Crafty Citizen,

Thank you for applying to City of Craft 2010.  We are sorry to have to tell you that your work was not accepted to this year's show.

This year's jury process was extremely competitive as we received an unprecedented amount of applications.  With our limited space, potential vendors had a 1 in 7 chance in making the final list.  As a result we ended up having to turn away many applicants that we would have loved to include in the show – a painful process to be sure!

Since our 2007 December show, City of Craft has grown beyond the holiday show with programming throughout the year. We'd love to have you participate in our celebration of craft in this city in some future capacity, so please stay in touch about City of Craft activities including future shows. 

For information on other shows happening in Toronto, the new craft shows call forum at the Toronto Craft Alert is probably the best place to look.  If you're looking abroad, we recommend this site

If you'd like to participate in the December show as a volunteer, please let us know – we'd love to have you involved!  Email us at:

With warm regards,

City of
