Three great opportunities are coming together this fall.  The Indiana Artisan application is online now, and all who apply by Oct. 15 have the opportunity to participate in the first Indiana Artisan Holiday Marketplace.  This new showcase, designed to reach gift buyers on the true first weekend of the holiday season, will be in downtown Fort Wayne.  To help improve Artisan sales then and year-round, Bruce Baker is coming back to Indiana for a         Sept. 9 workshop.  It is open to all who create art or make value-added foods and will focus on merchandising and leveraging regional and national trends for product development.
