Crafters deserve to feel appreciated when buying their supplies. My goal is to create an experience that is as accessible, encouraging, and inclusive as the experience I have had being part of the craft community. When you are here I hope that you feel seen, appreciated, and treated like the golden human you are.
Maydel is the culmination of 20 years as a professional crafter, teacher, and designer. After recovering from a too-long stint in Silicon Valley I am thrilled to be back within my chosen community and to be building something meaningful within the great city of Chicago.
Thank you for giving me a place to belong.
