Crafter Corner...

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

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

Please note that questions will be answered much more quickly by email rather than calling the League telephone number. We are a 100% volunteer board and the telephone number is not monitored regularly except during the actual show days!

Our VOUCHER program has been a big success! If you are a crafter and are interested in earning a voucher please click here.
