Background on some of the new exhibitors:

  • Becky Logan and Diane Herche -- Diane and Becky enjoy knitting. Making and creating beautiful handbags is a joy to them. Each item they produce is hand-knitted with 100 percent wool yarns, felted, embellished and lined. Every one is a unique creation -- no two are exactly alike.Becky, 217-341-8244; Harley96@gcctv.com

  • Elizabeth Meyrick and Renee Stubblefield -- Beth and Renee have been friends for 30 years. Their current crafting passion is making jewelry. What started as a hobby to make items for themselves quickly grew into home shows and craft fairs. All items are handcrafted using materials such as gemstones, Swarovski crystal and other beads to create necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, pendants, bookmarks, wine bottle stoppers and more. One of the goals is to keep prices reasonable. Elizabeth, 732-2559; ajeanm@verizon.net

  • Deb Rohrer -- Deb is very pleased to introduce her new venture, "First Impression Gift Bags." These unique, reusable felt bags are individually designed and handcrafted. They are available in various sizes and offer an appropriate design for any gift-giving occasion. A year ago Deb found herself buying little factory-made gift bags, bringing them home, making up her own version and giving several away to family members. Today she has a full line of bags for all occasions. 732-2089; debrohrer@yahoo.com

The park district hopes to see everyone out at this great event as the Christmas shopping season begins.
