The Crafter’s Workshop’s Jump Start

CJSLogo_500

Our next Jump Start is brought to you by The Crafter’s Workshop

TCW logo large

We are a family-owned, independent manufacturer & distributor of some very cool templates and stencils.  We began as a small paper arts shop in 1997, selling lovely papers, fine art supplies and all sorts of delicious things. One day in 1998, we realized that the only thing missing was a great assortment of unique templates.  And Voilà! The Crafter’s Workshop templates & stencils was born!

Jaime, our designer and founder, creates most of the designs.  Ted, the Head Honcho, is the driving force behind the whole production.  And Suzanne is our no-nonsense (quilt-a-holic, don’t-tell-me-it’s-impossible) task-master who makes sure your orders go out as soon as humanly possible.  And then of course there’s us, the cast of elves who are busily making, packing, picking and shipping all of your orders (yes, we make and package everything right here in the USA!)  Whew! It’s a big job keeping Scrapbookers, Stampers, Cardmakers, Quilters, Fiber Artists, Decorative Artists and everyone-in-between-Artists happy.  But somehow we do it.

    I am a crafty flight attendant. I have been painting since I was 3 with my grandmother who was very well versed in eastern european folk art painting…we have the best easter eggs because of her!!! and that started my creativity….I have dabbled in everything and somehow made art my daily life in university with a degree in it!! Then I became a flight attendant…what else do you do with a degree in fine art!!lol So the best part is I get inspiration from what I see all over the world and sometimes bring home the quirkiest art/craft supplies…..is it wrong to keep the packaging from a sandwhich I bought because the pattern was really pretty??!!!
