Due to COVID-19, MECC will not be able to host Home Craft Days as a live event for 2020. However, we will be having a virtual Home Craft Days 2020 event that will be broadcast this October. More details about the virtual event – including the date and time of the broadcast – will be announced soon. Vendors wishing to participate in Home Craft Days may continue to submit applications through August 17, 2020, and their registration fee will cover not only their participation in the 2020 virtual event this October, but also their registration fee for Home Craft Days 2021, when MECC will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Home Craft Days.

Any vendor who has already registered and paid their fee for Home Craft Days 2020, but wishes to cancel their participation and obtain a refund of their registration fee, will need to contact Krisanne Hickman at khickman@mecc.edu, or by calling 276-523-2400 ext. 310, to request a refund by August 17, 2020.
