The Mental Health Resource League invites everyone to join us at our 2019 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. You don't want to miss this years shows! Please mark your calendars now for our Fair and Fall Diddley® shows!

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, much more.

Craft applications are now available and are available by DOWNLOAD only. Unfortunately, no applications can be mailed to crafters. Jurying for our 2019 shows will take place in February, 2019. If you are a crafter interested in either or both of our Craft Shows, please download crafter applications here. Applications are due by February 15th, 2019. Crafter placements in both Fair and Fall Diddley events are on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you are a crafter and would like to stay in the same location as you had in our 2018 shows, you MUST 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 2018 shows, MHRL will distribute nearly $238,000.00 at our Annual Meeting on January 28th, 2019. These proceeds were allocated to 16 non-profit agencies in McHenry County that further the mental health industry by providing much needed mental health related services.
