Ann Kellington, Annie’s Aprons – Ann made an apron for her mom, Karen, and from that point forward she was hooked!  (Karen’s is now nicknamed a “baking blouse” as she wears it so much!)  Annie’s Aprons are reversible – you’re getting two complementary looks in one apron!  Each is hand sewn of 100% cotton material, which is “easy care,” standing up to time after time of washing and drying.  These aprons are priced affordably and make a fun and functional gift for your gourmand!
Chris Bur, Mittens & More! – Chris’ playful patterns are warm, wonderful and made by hand!  Lots to choose from in lots of different sizes – warm, warm, warm & cute, cute, cute!  Cozy fleece and prind corduroy mittens and, new this year, children’s coats made of adorable fabrics wih fleece linings.
Deb Levens, Deb Levens Jewelry – Deb Levens Jewelry Design has been evolving for ten years.  It began with her daughter’s wedding and has taken on a life of it’s own.  Deb’s design style is always changing but consistantly reflects the understated elegant look that she (and her customers!) love. Deb uses sterling silver, natural stones and gems, as well as beads in her work, and is now making kumihimo woven jewelry as well.
Debbie Feldick, Table Traditions – Looking for new traditions for your holiday table or for everyday?  Debbie has it covered!  All pieces are hand-sewn, from table cloths to runners, placemats and napkins.  Excellent quality, and wonderful colors, her pieces are stunning.  Edges are double sewn to lay flat as they hang off of the table, weights are sewn into each corner to keep the table cloth in place on the table allowing the corners to hang straight in a “V” shape.  No ironing! Wash, dry and use! Easy to care for!Quality, durable fabrics to match your home décor.  Take a look at www.tabletraditions.net.

Karen Kellington, Karen’s Kards – Karen has been hand-making her cards for several years, each one a piece of art.  Treasures of the past, such as handkerchiefs from the 50’s and 60’s, are an anchor of her cards, perfect for any occasion.  Karen hand-selects the pieces she uses on each card, and aside from the 4 Angels’ Holiday Boutique, takes special orders for cards for Christmas, Birthdays and Multi-use.  Each piece is one of a kind, and made with the love and care that only Karen can give.
Krista Gordhamer, Independent Artist – Krista’s beautiful stained glass is both functional and affordable (did I mention beautiful, too?).  Krista makes crosses and ornaments, as well Gazing Globes for the garden, colorful dragonflies and butterflies, and even some recycled wine bottle bird feeders and vases.  Check out her artwork at https://www.facebook.com/#!/ArtistKristaGordhamer.

Lindsay Christianson, Zoe Violet – Lindsay has been selling her crafts since the birth of her first daughter (Zoe Violet, now 4 1/2). Her first love is the felted wool pixie hats she has made from the very beginning, but her collection has expanded to include hair accessories, toys, kids clothing, and other miscellaneous items. She especially enjoys upcycling materials and repurposing items to give them new (much more exciting) second lives. The result? Quirky, adorable items for all of the ridiculously fun people in your life!   Look for wool hats, wool ornaments and other miscellaneous gifty goods!
Nina Guertin, 4 Angels Creations – www.4angelscreations.com – Nina has been working with clay since 1999 and specializes in two- and three-dimensional angels and crosses for wall hanging.  In her daily work, prayer is at the center, each piece of art prayerfully made in the hope that it will be a conduit of healing, harmony and peace for the receiver.  Nina also makes Drunken Monkeys, as well as Hot Betty Comfort Packs, soaps, essential oil sprays and other items promoting health, comfort, and positive thought.
Noelle Rollins, Noelle Rollins Art – Noelle is an artist, and her work is created with the intention of supporting others on their journey to an authentic, soulful life.  Noelle will have prints, cards, and pallet art work available for purchase at this year’s boutique.  In 2014, Noelle will travel to Jerusalem to work with women seeking peace and hope, and bracelets will also be available for purchase to support her journey there.  Look-see by clicking www.NoelleRollinsArt.com!
Pam Sweetman, Pendants by Pam – Pendants by Pam was founded several years ago after Pam had created so many fused glass pendants and discovered other people enjoyed them as much as she did. Glass fusing was her first addiction, followed by copper enameling, followed by bronze clay, followed by metal stamping and new this year – stone and metal combined to attain a gorgeous look! Pam feels the stone and metal together tend to give a feeling of strength and beauty much like the women who purchase her pendants, and she feels blessed that people have been so supportive of her beautiful creations.  New this year are fused glass knobs to accessorize your cabinets or dressers – kitchen, bath or bedroom!
Patty LaBossiere, French Balls (Meatballs Extraordinaire) – Patty’s meatballs are a staple at family gatherings and now will be offered as a lunch special at 4 Angels!  Handmade meatballs (recipe in her head) and homemade sauce (also in her head) are loaded with freshly minced garlic, finely shredded parmesan, ground beef and fresh hot italian sausage!  Her French Balls have kick, so be ready!
Scott Loeser, Marked Leather – Marked™ is a line of top quality leather goods that is both high-end and simple, designed and hand-made by Scott Loeser. From card holders to wallets to larger bags, each is a one-of-a-kind Marked™ product. Because leather is a natural product that exhibits unique characteristics through shifts in coloration and marks in the material, no two pieces are alike. Satisfaction is guaranteed.  Look for the branded hides on Scott’s pieces when you’re here  – amazingly COOL.
Suzanne Nicolette, Nicolette Design – Suzanne’s hand-felted merino wool and silk scarves are gorgeous, and her felted wool soap balls are a must see!  You can check out her products at https://www.facebook.com/#!/NicoletteDesign.  Elegant AND beautiful!
