My name is HaLicia Davis and I enjoy making and selling my own creations, such as pillows, purses, barrettes, just to name a few. I started creating for the Red Tent Women’s Initiative in 2018.
My crafting journey began when I became a mother of two daughter’s and I was raising them. I started with hand sewing and moved on to machine sewing to craft dolls, angels and Christmas ornaments for extra income. I wanted my daughters to know that working hard is rewarding and in working hard, they could be proud of what they accomplish in life. I love the Red Tent and what it stands for. Bringing women together for love, support, encouragement and helping one another.
My name is Shannon McCampbell and I create upcycled furniture and other objects that have been discarded or given away. Another woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure! I started creating with the Red Tent Women’s Initiative in 2018. I grew up an only child, out in the country, and always played with assorted arts & crafts. These hobbies carried over into my adult life, and when I wasn’t able to afford new furniture. I started upcycling and repurposing items I found on the side of the road. The Red Tent Women’s Initiative empowered me to work on self-esteem issues and grow as a person. Having the support of the Red Tent Women enabled me to start creating bigger and better pieces and I now have a growing crafting business.

Attending community events that we participate in is fulfilling. When we attend and sell our goods community events, it is also a way for us to showcase what The Red Tent Women’s Initiative can provide to women in our community. Some of my best times in the last year were spent with The Red Tent women.
