The Tea Time activity group of Newcomer Friends of Greater Plano (NFGP) visited the Heard-Craig Center for the Arts in McKinney for a guided tour of the house and their special exhibit Patterns of the Past and Present.
There were approximately 140 teacups and saucers in 11 different categories in the exhibit. Many of the teacups were on loan from local McKinney families and from the Heard-Craig Heirloom China Collection including Kathryn’s own hand painted designs and stencils. The teacups dating from 1900-1950 were on display alongside current patterns. The group was treated to tea & cookies in the upstairs bedrooms & art studio and took home a beautiful silver Heard-Craig ornament.
The Heard-Craig House was built in 1900 and is one of the most beautifully preserved historic homes in North Texas. The residence was a center of social, business, art and literary activities. The family’s heirlooms, art objects, personal memorabilia and furniture remain in the home today.
