Cheryl Graham & Gretchen Finch

Cheryl and Gretchen are two of the original chicks and they also are the organizers of the show. They are great friends who share a LOVE of buttons.

Cheryl will again have her 'Letter' painted canvases, unique little address books and one of a kind frames. She also will have lovely painted and collaged birds on small canvases. Each piece is truly one of a kind and shows her talent and lovely point of view.

Gretchen will have vintage button collages, sterling silver button bookmarks, and button bracelets. This will be her 7th year to create a sculpted folk art creation. A charming snow bunny is crafted from paper pulp and carries the message of 'Joy'. Also, be sure to check out the 'march of the pine-guins' !

Kim Mallory

Kim calls her creations Small Joys "fripperies and fancies" delightfully obtuse objects of desire. Along with her paper items, she will have bags of sugar and spice almonds and various decorative odds and ends, framed and otherwise.

Toni Roper

This is Toni's third year with the Chicks. She makes delicious dip and cheese ball mixes that she labels with vintage postcard images. After tasting the samples, you'll want to pick up several to take home. Mmmmmmm good! This year, Toni's new item is a magnetic note board in a vintage frame.

21 days till the show!

Angela Muir

Angela is a formally trained fashion designer who enjoys crafting with recycled materials.  "I often find that I enjoy the challenge of turning something that has already been used for a certain purpose into something completely different, prolonging the life of the material and wasting less in the long run."  As an example, she creates from recycled coffee bean sacks that  she gets from the Roastarie Coffee Company right here in Kansas City.  Not only are these products green, they are local as well!

Michelle Strong

This is Michelle's first year at Crafty Chicks!  She creates jewelry using the natural beauty of real butterfly wings.  You won't believe the colors!!!  She'll also have some of her lovely little sparrow lockets available.  They're perfect for stocking stuffers.
