The Mental Health Resource League invites everyone to join us at our 2017 Fair and Fall Diddley® craft shows! For more detailed information on each of these shows, please use the links at the bottom of this page.

MHRL has a reputation for featuring hand-crafted, quality, original work at both the Fair Diddley® and Fall Diddley® shows. We are able to achieve this by requiring each of our vendors to be placed at one or both of the events through a juried application process. Through this process, we have been able to provide you with an outstanding display of folk art, wood carving, dried florals, pottery, painted and appliqued clothing, jewelry, fine art and much more. Craft applications will be available AFTER January 1, 2017 and are available by DOWNLOAD only. Unfortunately, no applications can be mailed to crafters. Jurying for our 2017 shows will take place in February, 2017. If you are a crafter interested in either or both of our Craft Shows, please return to our website after January 1st to download crafter applications. Please submit your applications before the deadline so your business is included in our February jury process.

All proceeds from both shows benefit McHenry County agencies concerned with mental health services. With the proceeds from our two 2016 shows, MHRLgranted nearly $231,000.00 at our Annual Meeting in January, 2017. These proceeds were allocated to 18 non-profit agencies in McHenry County that further the mental health industry by providing much needed mental health related services.
