$50 thimble sponsorship for small, locally owned businesses!
HA attendees are active supporters of small, independent and locally-owned businesses and the buy local/buy handmade movement. In turn, they prefer to use their resources and time to support local, independent artists. If you are a local business with 50 or fewer employees, you qualify for our “Thimble” sponsorship level.
