Hi, welcome to my first blog. I am BobbieSue Hill and I am the owner of Fusion Handcrafts. My website, www.fusionhandcrafts.com lists all of my currently available items with new items being listed weekly. Here is an excerpt from my wholesale catalog as an intro.
Like I said this is my first adventure into the world of blogging. As soon as I figure out how, I will post some photos of my soaps and a little more info. In the meantime, at least say "hi".
What it is
Fusion Handcrafts is a business that offers accessories and home items made by blending modern and old-fashioned methods, materials and designs.
How it Started
Fusion Handcrafts is the result of a lifetime of making things with my hands. From simple embroidery and ornaments to pass the time with my Grandma when I was child, to woodworking and remodeling to be with my father as a teenager, to sewing wedding dresses to pay for college, to making cloth diapers and diaper covers to save money when my kids were little, to now, as a Homeschooling mom of three I find myself knitting and crocheting to relax and maintain my sanity while I oversee the children's schoolwork. And let’s face it, there are only so many knit items that one family can wear, once there is an afghan (or two) for every bed and a scarf and hat (or two) for every head, something has to be done. Eventually you’ve got to sell some of them. So I started selling stuff online. First I sold on eBay, now I have my own website.
Where it’s going
For a few years Fusion Handcrafts has been mostly about yarn– buying yarn, winding yarn, knitting yarn– then last year my daughters and I did a soapmaking project with a couple of their friends. And that started a new obsession. So I had to make room in my knitting studio for soap supplies. I currently offer a constantly growing line of soap and bath products as laid out in this catalog. I will soon be adding liquid soaps and laundry soaps.
