Tag Team Tompkins has had a busy year, selling their work at local and regional shops and shows and now through Etsy. They consider their letterpress art prints a nice success, growing the offering from 13, created in 2009, to a total of 24 prints that will be offered at the Crafty Chicks 2010 show. Diane and Madeline continue to enjoy creating their"DireWarning"originals and their framed hand lettered and hand-cut silhouette art. They are proud to be featured at Main Street Goods and Goodies, located in Liberty, Missouri, owned and operated by Gail Dugdale, Diane's sister, another Crafty Chick.
It's funny the first thing people say when they see the beads Cindy works with is, "Oh man, how can you see?" Cindy has been showing at Crafty Chicks since the beginning, 11 years ago. Her designs have evolved. Right now, she is into the old school tattoo look. It is a lot of fun to see her ideas come to life. When you love what you do it shows! Stop by and see her...just look for the crowd.
Directions from downtown KC: North to Liberty on I-35 to Hwy 152, exit 16, turn right (east) toward Historic Town Square. Hwy 152 turn into Kansas St. Heritage Hall is located just east of Kansas and Prairie.
Crafty Chicks was started in 1999.
So what came first...the chick or the egg? It was a sweet chick in China that a co-worker was adopting. Our friend wanted to raise some money to help with expenses so we decided to have an arts and crafts sale. We began as Crafty Chicks and Jim, but Jim retired and we got tired of being asked "Where's Jim?".
The event has evolved into a venue for creative individuals with most having a connection to Hallmark Cards. We have many participants who have been in Crafty Chicks from the beginning and each year it continues to grow.
Crafty Chicks is a yearly event and celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity of all the participants.
