Behind The Scenes: Gifts For Crafters


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.

Rachel is a nerdy Oregon native with a philosophy degree and classical dance background. She fancies her personal style to be quirky sophistication, focusing on the importance of fit while adding special touches of handmade embellishments. She is also a connoisseur of whiskey and nap-taker extraordinaire.

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!
