61 days until the show!
Wonderfully Made Jewelry by Mindi Ogden

It is always a so fun to have new chicks in our show! Mindi is joining us for the first time this year. She makes whimsical, unique jewelry pieces - jewelry that can fit your personality and style! We see jewelry in your future!

Diane and Madeline Tompkins

Diane and Madeline are two of our founding chicks and have been with us for all 10 years! This mother/daughter team are both so very talented and each year have had wonderful art and jewelry items to sell. You may have seen them in a Curious Sofa show earlier this year! Visit their booth and try to make a purchase is not easy!

Cindy Ross

Prepare yourself for large crowds! There is always one gathered at Cindy's booth! Her hand-beaded pins have become collectors items to so many. Her designs are so charming, we are sure you will be tempted. Also, Cindy has been a Crafty Chick for the last ten years! Woo-hoo!

Sandi Devenny plush characters

This will be Sandi's first year at Crafty Chicks where she will be featuring a collection of handmade plush. She strives to create plush with character and personality that will appeal to a wide array of individuals. Each piece is uniquely constructed and one of a kind, so make sure to get you hands on some before they are gone.

Sharon Milleret and June Brock

If you have been to Crafty Chicks before, you probably have seen these chicks! They always have a wonderful selection of pre-owned treasures and antiques items. June uses antique molds to make lovely hand-painted ornaments. These are great gifts or maybe one for your own tree! Be sure to see what is new this year!

John Still's Felted Lambs and Mary Janes

This is John's first year in Crafty Chicks (only a real man can be comfortable with being a chick!) These adorable 100% wool felted animals and Mary Jane shoes are perfect for that baby gift. John will also have felted holiday bracelets. So don't be 'sheepish' and shy, be sure to visit John's booth with your Christmas list.

Tammy Smith and son, Murphy with Homemade Circus 

This is Tammy's second year at Crafty Chicks.  Tammy started making these birdcages and other wire pieces when she realized she loved the look of an abandoned circus or carnival she saw in England while on a family vacation. This has been a very busy year for her, taking her Homemade Circus on the road traveling to shows across the United States.  We're glad she's making us part of her itinerary.   
Jewelry by Patty Ross

You may recognize this lovely jewelry made by Patty Ross, a Crafty Chick for several years. She uses high quality metal materials and semi-precious stones in most of her designs. Some designs may have vintage components that she has repurposed. Patty got married this year.......her name may have changed but the jewelry is still beautifully hand-crafted. Be sure and stop by her table and congratulate the new Mrs!
