The Crafters' Association is a program designed for CBVI consumers who want to make handcrafted products for either recreational or self-employment purposes.

Program participants are visited in their home, where an assessment of their particular craft interest, production proficiency and material needs is conducted. If necessary, training is provided, along with product design, color and pricing suggestions, to enhance quality and marketability. Upon completion, products are picked up and sold at craft fairs and in a variety of venues. Crafters' set the price for each of their items and are paid the full amount when the product is sold.

The Crafters' Association Program provides individuals who are blind or severely visually impaired with opportunities for creative expression, recreational activity, and self-sufficiency through home-based employment.
