crafter's studio's story
A Co-worker/friend & I had a common interest in Scrapbooking. We knew others who also enjoyed Scrapbooking. We decided to set up a day for ladies with 8+ hours uninterrupted Scrapbooking at a local town hall. We had Creative Memories’s products & Jolee stickers (I had purchased off Ebay) for sale.
It was fun for all, & we set up a second day at a Community Center.
Shortly after, my friend’s retail store front became available & we thought “why not” give a business a try. We formed the partnership Crafter’s Studio LLC, leaving the door open in the name if we would offer more than paper crafts. We both had full time jobs & were just open a couple nights a week & 2 Saturdays a month. Customers helped in teaching card classes.
My business partner with her work and family demands left the partnership in 2013. In 2014 I moved the Studio from Kiel to New Holstein.
Thank you to customers that followed me from Kiel to New Holstein & all the new customers I have met.
Hey, I'm Kathy!
I’m the youngest of 4 children & grew up on a dairy farm in rural Elkhart Lake WI. Growing up on a farm was a great experience providing many learning opportunities & responsibilities
I graduated from Lakeshore Technical College & later Lakeland College with a degree in Accounting. I worked at Johnsonville Sausage for 35 years and now am enjoying owning Crafter’s Studio with opportunities to provide crafting supplies and a learning environment.
Rural Elkhart Lake is still my home.
I remember as a child making cards for my Parents. I found a couple of those cards. You may have also made cards when you were younger cutting, pasting and coloring. Making cards has come a long way with all the tools and techniques. Remember you don’t have to be a child to make cards!
I am excited that I am able at Crafter’s Studio to provide supplies and spark ideas to continue handmade cards.
