The New York Artisans Collective (NYAC) is a group of Queens and Long Island based crafters, artisans, and artists (we hardily welcome all New York crafters, artisans, and artists, however) who have come together to foster an appreciation for handmade crafts and art in the New York area. We intend to promote all local artisans throughout the city and we aim to do this by organizing events, creating promotional networks, and working with businesses and community organization to increase awareness and educate New York residents about the world of wonderfully handmade and local goods and gifts available to them right in their own backyards.
If you support us and what were doing let us know. Visit our Facebook page, email us, or join us at any of the future events we’ll be organizing. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on everything we do.
To all those local crafters, artisans, and artists; we’re here for you, so drop us a line whenever you like.

I hereby pledge that should I ever be in need of a gift or special item I will resist the tempation to head straight to my nearest discount Superstore and instead, I will do my best to support a local artisan by purchasing a locally produced handmade good. Furthermore I promise that should a friend, relative, or acquaintance of mine ever be in need of a gift or special item I will refer them to a local artisan whenever possible.
