Spin off RE: craft shows--does your state have??

In ND they have a group of crafters and they have to meet certain standards to get certified to be Pride of Dakota. They have their own craft show, and members sell both in other craft shows and on their web site. At their craft show ONLY those members who make their own items, or grow their own items like honey, can sell the products. One person raises sheep and sells all sorts of products, including lamb sticks.
Does any other state do this?
Just curious.

Never heard of it, but it is a great idea.

That's true of several groups in our state. DH and I used to belong to a craft guild here and their standards were pretty high. It was for members only, which most guilds are,and as far as I'm concerned that's a good thing. This area is not a good market for fine crafts though. More people are looking for cute, trendy and cheap, than not. We went to other areas to sell our crafts for the most part. New England was good for us. We did a craft show at Old Deerfield, Ma for several years and developed a rather good following there.

A couple of Christmases ago, DD gave me a gift box of Pride of Dakota items, all very good. I didn't realize it was a guild operation, but what a good idea.

Marie, I'm curious. What are lamb sticks?
