Thank you for your interest in the Chris Cringle Arts & Crafts Show.

Chris Cringle is a juried show, meaning everybody who is accepted into the show has sent in a jury packet, consisting of an application giving information about their product and pictures of their finished product along with pictures of their work in progress. The jury committee is composed of 10-12 members of the Illinois Heartland Decorative Artist. The Illinois Heartland Decorative Artist is a chapter of the national Society of Decorative Painters.

The jury committee will consider all types of mediums, i.e.: baskets, candles, ceramics, clothing, fabric, floral, furniture, glass, jewelry, metal, painting, scrap booking, soaps, stamping and wood working to name a few.

Chris Cringle is now being held at a new location: Fluid Event Center in Champaign, Illinois.
