Crafting has always been a passion with Sondra Jones. Sondra started experimenting in the early 1970's when she would hold crafting meetings to learn and teach: Macramé; Crochet; Knitting; Decoupage; Cake decorating; Needlepoint; Quilting & more. She found it to be relaxing and fun. In the late 90's she started collecting and refurbishing many different types of merchandise. She loves to beautify and decorate things. Recycling is also important to Sondra. She loves that her merchandise brings joy to others. She is currently the 'Coordinator' for 'Champs Crafter Gift Shop' and holds events there at least 3 times a year.
The story behind our logo is the Trinity. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We are a family and company who believe that the Lord should be first and foremost in our lives. We started Three In One in hopes that with every sip and wear that you begin your day with Inspiration. Monica started crafting when she became a stay at home mom. She was looking for something to keep her busy when her son was sleeping and would eventually start school. So I began making tumblers and when my son started school I also began making t-shirts. With our focus being on the Lord, and the rest is history.
Donna Malone has been a crafter since high school. She studied art and took sewing classes. As life got busier working full-time and raising children, she got away from her crafts. Now that she is retired she can devote more time creating new and different items. She decided to name her craft business ‘Katy’s Crafts’ because that was her nickname her Grandfather gave her growing up. She is now ‘Doing what she loves’.
Hello! My name is Mary Cerda, I'm married to my wonderful husband of 22 years Danny, we have one son Joshua who just graduated High School. I was blessed to be a stay-@-home Mom for the last 17 years. Once Joshua started school, I found I had extra time on my hands. I've always enjoyed doing crafts and learning new skills from around 7 years old when I first learned to crochet and sign language. I find Crafting to be relaxing and my projects include: CROCHETING (kitchen
scrubbies, coasters, wash clothes, & hot pads), ACRYLIC PAINTING (rocks, canvas & wood signs), SCULPTING W/CLAY (broaches, magnets), PAPER CRAFTS (cards, flowers, banners & origami). I love being a part of Champs Crafters Gift Shop because not only do I get a chance to sell my handmade items, but I've met wonderful new customers and made new friends with the other crafters in the shop. My best sellers are my crocheted kitchen & face scrubbies and my painted rocks. Come take a look, I' d love to meet you.
My name is Naomi Hall, I started designing greeting cards 18 years ago. I fell in love with the way there are endless ways you can create and design cards. And how people enjoy receiving a card for their birthday, anniversary, get well, thank you, etc. Going to the mail box and finding a card waiting for you is such a treat and joy for all ages.
So it makes me want to continue doing what I love. I have done large event cards for all the attendees, and special orders for that special someone in your life. It is truly a blessing for me to make something so small that changes someone’s day in one moment. I hope I can meet you someday and introduce you to my designs in hopes it will put a smile on your face.

I am the owner and designer of Handmade Lifestyle where I create and design custom door wreaths. I started making wreaths in 2016 as a hobby. Since then it has grown into a small business that is still continuing to grow and I’m very grateful for this. Along the way I’ve met many wonderful people that have been helpful in growing my business and I have learned so much thus far. I definitely live in a community with amazing supporters and customers.

I started crocheting when I was 12 years old. My first project was making granny square blankets. My mom was an avid knitter, and she inspired my natural talent. My next project was cardigan sweaters. Then I became obsessed with amigurumi (the art of crocheting 3D figures) It makes me happy seeing each animal and doll shape take form and personalities develop. Crocheting succulent plants are fun and pretty. When my daughter moved into her apartment, she bought succulents to put in her window. They soon died so I found a pattern for plants, and they turned out nice and they didn’t need water to live. I also do special orders, if I can find a pattern, I can make it.
My name is Leslie Anderson. I am a Mother, animal lover, and coffee addict! I am obsessed with things that smell good. I discovered ‘Freshies’ in 2019 and had the opportunity to start up
my side business. Freshies are hand crafted. The fresheners are made with scented aroma beads made into several different designs and offered in wide variety of scents. Since they were not offered here in our area, I was excited to share them at local vendor events. So, my Mother, my daughter, and myself got busy creating and that is how our name the “3 Gen’z
Freshies” came about. We all 3 find it fun and helps to destress us. The best part is my husband also loves the Freshies and is super supportive! Please come check out the ‘Freshies’ at Champs Crafters Gift Shop.
Hello! My name is Stacy Campbell. I started crafting when I was a member of a group called the ‘ Brownies’ back in the 1960’s. From there I advanced to the ‘Girl Scouts’ which is where I
started sewing and crocheting. As the years went by, I enjoyed making ‘Afghans, blankets, and even made my own Wedding Dress’! I loved gifting my blankets to family members and friends and was encouraged to do more. I have loved crafting most of my life and have had the opportunity to teach others to include my children and grandchildren. I just more recently
started making ‘bird baths, bird feeders, and glass yard art’! It’s exciting to see my creations that others have come to appreciate. Please visit my space at ‘Champs Crafter’s Gift Shop’.
I have been crafting since 2003. I began
making cakes which gave me an opportunity to
work in an amazing bakery. It eventually closed
down. I then went on to make door wreaths during
the holiday season. I also decorated
Christmas trees in peoples homes. Then
my sister had her daughter in 2008 and since I
only had boys I started making hair bows for
her, I made her every color & style I could.
My sister was always being asked were she got
them and that's how I started making
bows, headbands, faux leather purses, and
even face mask in 2020. I love what I do. It helps
me to distresses.
Hello! Thank you taking the time to read a little about me. My name is Pamela Sugden, and I am a mother to two daughters. I have 3 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. We are expecting another grandchild in March 2023 and my 1 st Great Grandson in Feb 2023. I truly believe that crafting is a blessing, and all blessings are gifts to be handed down through generations and shared. Crafting relieves stress and is very rewarding. I learned a lot from the women of our family and school. I previously
worked for 7 years for Catalina Sportswear and Swimwear. Even now I am studying for an Associates Degree in Arts and advance sewing and fashion at C.O.S. I have made wedding dresses and the whole wedding party attire and lots of crafts. I have sewn clothes for my family and friends. I am so very thankful for my blessing of gifts.
