Net proceeds from the Smithsonian Craft Show, presented by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee, are distributed each year in grants awarded to the Smithsonian’s 19 museums and libraries, nine research facilities, traveling exhibits and the National Zoological Park. Your donation will help to replace the funds lost when the Smithsonian Craft Show and Craft to Wear were by necessity postponed. Thank you for your generosity!
