Anne initially started making beaded collars for her own three dogs. The demand quickly increased to family, friends. acquaintances and nearly everyone who saw them. Requests began flowing in. especially from people at the dog park resulting in a large group of very well dressed dogs. An animal lover, Anne decided to give 100% of all proceeds to Operation Wildlife (OWL), a group of amazing people who are dedicated to the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned animals. Remember dogs need Christmas gifts, too!
Julie Day loves to create with a vintage flair. Her felt flowers
can adorn a headband, jacket label or top off your shoes. Miniature
decoupaged journals crafted from old books and papers help express your personal style
(and keep you organized!). Other specialties include cloth tissue holders from retro
fabrics, picture frames from wrapping paper of long ago Christmases, and other vintage
surprises. Julie is so excited to be a crafty chick!

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.
