Our Meetings

We have a new location!

Our new meeting location is at the Espenshied Chapel
317 N. County Road,
Mascoutah, IL

We currently meet two times a month:

General Meetings are held the last Thursday of each month, except November and December. This is a good meeting to attend to get an overview of what we do, and meet most of the members.

The Heritage Arts meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month.

We hope to see you there!

Our Mission

We are a collective of indie artists who gather to learn, teach and share skills in many forms of artistic expression.  Our artisans value craftsmanship and our activities are heavily rooted in heritage arts and fine crafts. 

We have special Study Groups which meet regularly to
discuss specific topics such as weaving, spinning, needlecrafts,
pottery, and heritage crafts.
