Sell Your Crafts to Support Scholarships
Share your creative talents and help raise money to support women undergraduates at MIT!
Artisans from the MIT community and beyond are invited to apply to the League’s juried Community Craft Fair, held every December in Lobby 10 just off MIT’s famed Infinite Corridor.
Jewelers, fiber artists, soap-makers, woodworkers and more offer their crafts at this popular holiday event that has raised more than $20,000 to benefit women undergrads at MIT.

How to Apply
Applications are accepted online only, beginning in mid October. First-time applicants will need to send photos of their work.
The MIT Women’s League Craft Fair Committee and Executive Board reviews all applications and the fair coordinator will notify applicants of the decision no later than two weeks prior to the fair.
Because space in Lobby 10 for only 18 tables, we typically accept only one vendor per type of craft.
After completing the online application, prospective vendors should send a check for table fee and parking passes, if needed, payable to the MIT Women's League Community Craft Fairs to:
Community Craft Fair Coordinator
MIT Museum, 265 Massachusetts Avenue, Bldg N52-215
Cambridge, MA 02139
Table fee: $200
Parking: Please add $32 for a one-day pass and $64 for two one-day passes, if needed. Limited on-street meter parking is available near the MIT campus.
Proceeds from table fees directly support the Women’s League Scholarship Fund.
Cancellations made less than two weeks before the fair are non-refundable unless we’re able to fill that space before the first day of the fair. Please call the League office at 617-253-3656 and email fair coordinator Brenda Blais at email@example.com as soon as possible if you need to cancel.
