[June 26, 2013]  MOUNT PULASKI -- The Mount Pulaski Courthouse Foundation is sponsoring a craft show during the annual Mount Pulaski Fall Festival. Viewing times will be on Friday, Sept. 6, from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 7, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The only types of crafts that will be accepted are woodcarving, woodworking, painting, metal arts and photography.

People who wish to exhibit their craft items are asked to send a completed form for each entry to Ms. Carol Van Rheeden, 522 N. Marion St., before Aug. 15. This will allow the committee time to prepare the show information and organize display spaces before the arrival of the actual craft items. The craft show entry form is available at and at Salt Creek Attic in Mount Pulaski.

Craft show guidelines

  • All craft items submitted should be creations made by the person submitting them.

  • Actual craft items should be delivered to the Mount Pulaski Courthouse on Wednesday, Sept. 4, between 2 and 6 p.m. To contact the courthouse, call 792-3919. (Other contacts: Barbara, 792-5126; Carol, 792-3860; Salt Creek Attic, 792-5117)

  • Each item loaned should have an identification label on the bottom or the back. Include owner's name, address and phone number. An address label could be used with phone number added.

  • A separate entry form must be completed for each item to be exhibited. The forms must be turned in to Ms Carol Van Rheeden by Aug. 15. The entry form is available at and at Salt Creek Attic in Mount Pulaski.

  • All items must be picked up on Saturday, Sept 7, between 7 and 8 p.m. or on Sunday, Sept. 8, between 2 and 3 p.m.

  • Visitors who attend the show will be invited to vote for their favorite piece in the show. Winners in the voting will receive first, second and third prizes.

  • The committee will take the best possible care of the craft items. Courthouse guides, craft committee members and members of Friends of the Courthouse will be at the courthouse during the entire time the show is in progress. However, the committee cannot be held responsible for the value of any item. Exhibitors for whom this is a problem are asked to have the items covered by personal insurance.

  • Submit entry forms as soon as possible. Exhibitors will receive a claim form for each item when they bring the items to the courthouse. Exhibitors must bring their claim forms to claim their items at the end of the show.
