Ran across this intro to an article at the Boston Globe: Textile Dressing - Wear Your Art on Your Sleeve. While you have to be a subscriber to the Globe to read the whole article, there is plenty of good info for free. The article also references a Wearable-Arts party, which is also a great concept for an arts and crafts business with a retail or popup presence.

If you live in New South Wales take a look at this Imagination is Everything craft contest. Deadline to enter is December 31, 2013 and the show takes place in March 2014. $1,000 prize.
The theme of the exhibit is Textures of One. So you have to do a line drawing of three wispy tree trunks. Not sure if you have to be a local artist - check out the Textures Of One Facebook page for full details.

Read about this shopping destination earlier this year and thought you may be interested in reading an update recently posted in the Orlando Sentinel about Artegon Orlando. Artegon Orlando aims to have some artist tenants with studio and retail space.
The information I read about this concept earlier in the year stated spaces would range from 100 to 10,000 square feet with flexible leasing terms available. For more info, call Scott Benjamin at 407.256.486 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
