Fall Diddley®

Fall Diddley® 2020 has been CANCELLED!! Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it has been determined that we could not safely conduct the show keeping our crafters, our shoppers, our volunteers, and our board members safe and healthy.

Over the past 10 years, the League has consistently granted over $200,000 each year to our mental health agencies. The cancellation of both of our craft shows this year means that the League WILL NOT be able to make grants this year - UNLESS YOU HELP! Please follow the MHRL on FACEBOOK to see how you can help out!

Fair Diddley®

Due to the current health crisis, Fair Diddley® 2020 originally scheduled for Sunday, May 17, 2020 has been CANCELLED! Although MHRL and the City of Woodstock are heartbroken to break a 51 year tradition, it is in the best interest of our crafters, our volunteers, and the general public that we make this announcement.

The cancellation of this show will mean a $35,000 loss in revenue that would ultimately be granted to the 16 agencies that provide mental health related services. Although the League is currently discussing creative ways to lessen this shortfall of revenue, we ask for your DONATION if at all possible so these agencies can continue to provide these necessary services!

100% of net proceeds from Fair and Fall Diddley® are donated to 16 McHenry County agencies that service those with mental health related issues. Additional funding throughout the year is made available through our Immediate Grants Fund! Without your attendance and participation, this wouldn't be possible!

If you are interested in donating to the Mental Health Resource League, please visit our Contact Us page - or make a safe and secue donation via our Paypal donation page!.

Crafter Corner...

It is with a heavy heart that we must tell our crafters that our Fall Diddley 2020 show has been CANCELLED!! There is no way that we could insure the safety of all of those at the fairgrounds. For that reason, we are forced to cancel our October show and hope that the pandemic has run its course for our May, 2021 Fair Diddley show.

NOTICE TO ALL CRAFTERS:

MHRL will ONLY be returning money orders and cashier's checks to those crafters who sent a MO or cashier's check with your 2020 Fall Diddley application. If you sent a PERSONAL check - we will shred those checks! We WILL NOT return personal checks - they will be shredded!

Please check back here for updates on our 2021 shows.

All general crafter questions s/b directed to our Craft Chair email address.

If you have specific questions about Fair Diddley®, please contact the specific Fair chairperson by email at Fair Diddley®. If you have specific questions about Fall Diddley®, please contact the specific show chairperson by email at or Fall Diddley®.
