Cherish has been working in ceramics for 8 years. Her current work focuses on simple, functional and decorative forms created by using both wheel-thrown and hand-building techniques with interesting, textural, surface design motifs inspired by nature. As always, she will be selling an assortment of wares; mugs, bowls, vases, etc. Each piece is unique, 100% hand-made, and perfect for eating, drinking, gifting or adding that unique decorative flair you've been looking for to your own home or office.
Rachel owns 'love is rising', an outpouring of love that originally sprung from their journey to adopt their third child. Rachel has wanted her own handmade shop since college, and...years later finally got up the guts to try it and LOVES it. She love the process of creating (start to finish), meeting new friends and funding their adoption in a fun and new way. This is Rachel's first year as a '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.
