Sponsors requiring insurance by vendors is not unusual; that amount seems typical. Your life or homeowner insurer (e.g., State Farm) can offer a policy; also check of CERF+ (Craft Emergency Relief Fund) http://craftemergenc...o_be_without_itfor info and, I believe, they also offer coverage.

Why bother? Customer cuts their hand on a rough or sharp edge. Kid pulls over display shelf onto him/her self and gets hurt. Customer wants to sue because they burnt themselves on mug handle after heating in the microwave. Etc. We live in a litigious society. A couple hundred per year is cheap compared to some lawyer putting a lien against your house, car, savings, property, your 401K, your pottery collection, etc. Your homeowners insurance does not cover this type of thing. And, the sponsor is going to wash their hands and say, it is your responsibility -- look at the contract you signed.

Here is an example of how to compute the cost.  You need to identify your variables, costs of the variables, and assumptions of life-cycles, etc.
