Meet the Artist of the Week

Please allow me to introduce Mary Elder Criss, owner and designer of Meadow Fork Prims. Mary is just one of our many talented designers and artisans of the Handmade Art Fair Etsy team.  

Mary states she began selling on ebay about 10 years ago, beginning with small bowl fillers and pillows. She expanded, and opened her own web site, and also sold on Lemon Poppy Seeds site. For the last 3 years, she has sold pretty much exclusively as a wholesaler to shops across the United States, but has decided after this Fall to go back to creating custom orders and one of a kind items again to sell directly to customers. This allows Mary much more freedom in the creative process, which she truly enjoys. Currently, she is a solo operation, with occasional help from a very talented seamstress. Mary dreams to one day own her own shop where she can purchase handcrafted goods from other talented artists, while still fulfilling her creative side by making and selling her own items in a surrounding she has designed. 

You can find many, many more of Mary's designs and patterns at the following link:
