Crafting Adventures

American Made Since 2010

I started crocheting when I was 8 but turned it into a business in 2010 after the birth of my third child. My children have been my inspiration.

Tell us about your business.

When a friend and I began this business in 2010 it was to supplement our husband's income and give ourselves a creative outlet. I have had the absolute pleasure of watching my business increase each year. As my children grow, my business has grown to include products for teens and adults. I have gone beyond baby hats and ventured into hair accessories, scarves, and other trendy accessory items. I look forward to the challenge of new products and styles each season. I am forever grateful and thankful to everyone who chooses Crafting Adventures for their hat and accessories purchases.

What makes your business stand out?

I love to create custom hats and accessories for babies, children, and adults. When you order from Crafting Adventures you are first and foremost a person and are treated as such.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Never give up and always enjoy what you do. I love what I do and enjoy working every day. My business is my hobby and my passion.
