Exhibitor Testimonials

This show is, HANDS-DOWN, the most well done. It embodies the Spirit of Christmas! It is also known to be the cure for “grinches.” The lighting & music are fabulous! The organizers should write a book on “How to Make a Successful Show” and make it required reading for all show organizers!
– Jodi Brown, Holiday Aroma Decor

This was an excellent show. We met shoppers from all over the country. They were so appreciative of our work. We look forward to returning, as well as, new visitors!
– Pati & Jeff Miller, Silver Wear

APPLEWOOD ARTS has consistently been one of my best shows, year after year. The organization, marketing and attention to detail, brings the crowds EVERY year.
– Deanna Mumfrey, 5 Seeds

Better every year! My clients always look forward to attending. Thanks, APPLEWOOD, for an upscale avenue to display and sell my work.
– Diane Breed, Turning Leaf, Ltd.

The show featured great variety, so everyone had a lot of good choices. We loved being a part of it and look forward to creating new items to bring and show off at this year’s shows.
– Karen Kessler-Arnold, Christmas Joy by Karen

APPLEWOOD ARTS is ALWAYS a joy to participate in. The artisans bring incredible handmade items & the attendees are excited to shop! One of the best shows to be a part of in NORTHERN COLORADO!
– Janelle Highstreet, Buttons & Birds

I love participating in the APPLEWOOD ARTS festivals. When people come back YEAR AFTER YEAR to see me, it really inspires me to keep creating new things. I love having such great shows right before the holidays.
– Chelsea Hoffman, Easely Inspired

I have participated in these shows for many years. There is always a wide variety of different types of artists in each show. Peggy and Kathleen (although Kathleen is retiring now) have made sure each show goes on without problems. They lead with a kind heart. Thank you for continuing on, Peggy and John.
– Laura Schiller, LJS Originals

Ah . . . APPLEWOOD ARTS! What can I say? We have become a community of old & new friends. I shop as much as I sell, but the shows are a wonderful venue for both!
– Helen & Rich Keen, The Mountain Mitteneer

Thank you for letting me participate in the Highlands Ranch APPLEWOOD ARTS show. To say the very least, it was FANTASTIC! We saw a lot of coffee fans and customers! We are looking forward to this year.
– David Cholewa, 1859 Coffee Co.

I have participated in APPLEWOOD shows for over 10 consecutive years. The promoters do an excellent job of recruiting great artists and artisans, creating excellent variety, welcoming participants & customers and conjuring creative incentives to drive attendance. Having done other shows, I appreciate the personal touch ALL APPLEWOOD WORKERS extend to artists and patrons. GREAT SALES!
– Terre Christensen, PotTerre Raku & Stoneware

"I began sewing as a child. I enjoy spoiling my buyers with handmade crafts. I am passionate about making shoppers happy!
– Kathleen Schwartz, Kathy's Custom Sewing

"I was so busy. What a show! Set a new sales record—thank you."
– Dawn Haskins ,Rocky Mountain Dawn

"By far one of the very best shows in Colorado."
– Francine Wahlgren, Longmont Times-Call

"We have been doing Applewood Arts shows for most of ten years. All three shows are well attended, organized and directly advertised. They work very hard to reach the exact kind of customers that would attend the shows. All of this results in great sales for our small business. Thank you so much! The Styria Bakery family sure appreciates you".
–Shannon Campbell, Styria Bakery

"I've been doing the Applewood shows for about 15 years and these are the shows we look forward to every year. Our sales get better and better each year and that's due, in large part, to the hard work that the promoters do in organizing, advertising, and their search for the best vendors. I highly recommend trying the shows if you are a crafter or artist and visiting an Applewood show if you are looking for one of the best shows in Colorado".
– Sherry Thomas, Finishing Touches Florals

"We have done a lot of craft shows over the years and NONE compare to the APPLEWOOD ARTS SHOWS! They have high quality items and are professionally run. We don't want to do any other shows anymore!"
– Terri Schlensker and Linda Mahaney, Cranberry Woods
