The Short Story:
TLD Design Center & Gallery was launched September 1993 by an “Artreprenurial” mother/daughter team following their dreams to build and grow their own creative and fine arts business.

The Longer Story
JoAnn and Tammy Deck had worked together for years, seeking opportunuties to show and sell their own original ArtWork. At the time, only a limited amount of options existed leading them to conclude they needed to make their own opportunties. Fiber Artist, Tammy (the daughter), was outgrowing her home studio in Bolingbrook, IL and began looking for a suitable space in DuPage County. A search along the metra train line lead her to the off-beat (Artsy) space at 26 E Quincy St, Westmont, IL- (Chicago Near). Initially, a portion of the space functioned as Tammy’s fiber art maker’s space and another portion became their Gallery space. Soon after opening, with a desire to include and up-lift other artists, they invited local and distant artists to display and sell their original work through themed exhibits, group exhibits and solo shows.

Workshops and classes were added together with creative art materials, yarn, beads, looms and supplies.

August 2015, a Live/Work building was purchased in Berwyn, IL and Tammy opened her second location.
