Did I mention how busy we have been the past few months? I’m so excited Walden and Gifts for Crafters are no longer a secret. It means I can share these photos with you!

Gifts for Crafters



Rachel & Sheli Screen Printing

I only helped one day. All of the rest of the Cooper hardware kits and limited edition fabric kits were all hand screen printed by Sheli.

I’ve always wanted to screen print!

Oh, and congratulations on the two accomplishments – Walden and Gift for Crafters!

You guys screened your own packaging!! Ack the registration nightmares ensue…
Congratulations on the new products, and kudos to you and your team for screening by hand.


It was 1 color so thankfully no real issues with registration! The fabric kits were pretty hard to print on though.


I can’t believe you guys did so many aspects of these projects on your own. I’m thinking that last picture says it all!


Love the well deserved cocktails as a finisher!! :)

I live the new patterns Albion & Cooper. I am looking forward to buying the patterns in the not too distant future. I want to purchase a Kindle so I can download your ebook. Thank you for these patterns they are classic look & I totally love the look. Also love the screen printing you did for the packaging.


I love screen printing! Photo emulsion gets my heart racing – LOL!
