I have been having a very difficult time finding business insurance. I seems nobody wants to cover an "itinerant" craftsperson working out of a home studio. I have quite a bit invested in equipment (looms), inventory, and do about 10 shows a year on the road. I am now in a position to hire an assistant, but do not want to assume the liability for someone in my home studio without proper insurance. I have called a number of agents in my area; no one will sell me coverage because they consider it a cross between manufacturing, traveling, homeowners, and liability. What companies are Crafts friendly?
