Midwest Handmade is coming to the Kalamazoo County Expo Center, Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th. Admission is absolutely free and door prizes will be given out. Throughout the day.

So, what's Midwest Handmade? It's an organization that helps small businesses and craftsmen get their work seen. They support artists by highlighting new works on social media, and help people get their name out there. It's incredibly difficult to steal the spotlight with so many online retailers touting handmade wares. Midwest Handmade knows there's strength in numbers and give artists the special attention they need to be noticed by customers. Even if you aren't in the market for new artwork, they invite you to come down and show support for people following their crafty dreams.
