4 DAYS TO GO!!!!

Can you feel the excitement?  Hope you're getting all packed up and ready for a great day.  We have an awesome mix of talent this year. It will be wonderful to see our loyal friends who come to shop every year and to meet new ones. 

Heritage Hall will have a drop off for the Liberty Food drive.  They would appreciate any donations of canned goods for this worthy cause.

As the holidays approach we want to remind you of our friends' sale, COOL STUFF, the following weekend.

11 days till the big day!!!!

Gretchen Finch and Cheryl Graham

Cheryl and Gretchen are two of the original Crafty Chicks and they are the coordinators of the annual event. They are great friends who share a LOVE of vintage buttons!
Cheryl will have her monogram painted canvases, unique collages in cigar boxes, little address books, picture frames and decoupage bottles.  New this year are lovely birds painted and collaged on small canvases.  Each piece is truly one of a kind and express her distinctive point of view.
Gretchen will have charming button collages, ribbon bookmarks, vintage button bracelets and necklaces. She has a love of folk art and has been creating unique paper clay sculptures for the last several years. A whimsical deer with a small red bird perched on the wire antlers will be featured this year. 

Sharon Millerett and June Brock

You never know what these two chicks will be bringing for the show.  They have the most wonderful antiques and pre-owned treasures.  To round it all off, June adds to the mix charming ornaments that were created using small antique butter molds.  Come by and see what they have new this year!
Sweet Sixteen - days, that is, till the sale.

Em Byerly's handiwork from '07 Crafty Chicks

Em Byerly is a second year Crafty Chick.  With her love of vibrant colors and patterns, Em is putting her sewing skills to work.  She will be selling "Rag Bags", each one a unique blend of fabrics and stitch work. They are all slightly different and one of a kind. She will have a few more surprises to entice you so come by and meet Em.

Danielle Mousley

This is Danielle's first year to participate in Crafty Chicks.  She's been a customer for the past three years and decided it was time to give it a whirl herself.  Danielle will be whipping up batches of versatile pre-made mixes for the upcoming holiday season.  Cookies, brownies, muffins, friendship tea, hot cocoa, holiday spiced wine and cider mixes are perfect for gifts or to keep for yourself.

Katie Larson

This is Katie's first year at Crafty Chicks, and she's excited to be a part of it!  All her products include paper or fabric, sometimes combining both.  A few of the things she'll be selling are quilted purses, paper fabric flowers, and cross-stitched monogrammed tags.
Come by and welcome a new chick on the block.

23 days till the show & sale!!!

Patty Cheong

This is Patty's third year with the Chicks.  Many will remember her with her buddy, Christina who is now married and living in Minneapolis.  Patty's love of making jewelry has brought her back solo and you will love her wonderful use of color, in the beads, semi-precious gems and swavroski crystals.  Come shop her new styles this year and remember she also takes custom orders for individuals, brides and their wedding party.  Speaking of brides, Patty will be one early next year!

Debby Ritz and Desserts by Debby

Who doesn't love the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls in the morning?  Come early and that's what you'll find baking in the kitchen at Heritage Hall.  They do go fast, so be warned.
Ask Debby about her catering business, Desserts by Debby.  Her creativity comes out in the presentation as well as in her delicious desserts.
