CRAFTED is a holiday craft sale featuring the work of a dozen local makers and is held in a 113-year old white country church in Ulster county between New Paltz and Woodstock, two hours north of New York City.
Handmade in the Hudson Valley
Join us for a very special holiday sale at a church-turned-studio in Cottekill, NY where a collection of artists and designers have created a vibrant gift buying experience. Our two-day curated holiday shop showcases a diversity of wares, a range of prices, and ongoing demonstrations. Explore the open displays of ceramics, lamps, knit-ware, designer clothing, jewelry, ornaments, farm preserves, heirloom seeds, and more.
One central check-out makes it easy to take your time shopping with no pressure to buy from individual booths. Sit on the couch with hot cider and cookies, warm up by the fire, meet friends, and get to know each craftsperson.
Nationally Known Artists Right in Your Backyard

Collectively the conscientious artists of CRAFTED have been featured in the New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, American Craft, Huffington Post, Better Homes and Gardens, A Way to Garden, Country Living, New York Magazine, Ceramics Monthly and more. Explore what each artist has to offer on the artist’s page and come to the sale to see more of their work.
Handmade wares create warm connections between skilled makers and caring users. Using goods that are made by hand connects us to the many hands that have crafted our world over centuries. When you hold a handmade bowl, slice on a hand-carved cutting board, snuggle into a hand-knit hat, savor homegrown sauce, or plant locally grown seed, you are connected to the life of each individual artist and to the greater part of human history when almost everything was produced locally. CRAFTED is our way of bringing back a time when craftspeople were integral parts of creating their local culture and economy and were valued for their skills. Choosing handmade says you care about your community and support a world in which independent makers can thrive and practice their craft. Thank you for your part in this!
