Hi! Welcome to Duke and Bug Handmade. I am so glad you found us, here's a little more about who we are:
I am a one momma operation: which means that all the sourcing, designing, cutting, sewing, organizing orders, answering questions, shipping out packages, and all of the other little things are all done by myself, Kristin. Hi!
I never envisioned myself starting something like Duke & Bug Handmade. The idea of being an entrepreneur and starting a little handmade business was never really on my radar, let alone figuring out the internet!
I have always been a big supporter of handmade goods ( I have always loved a good craft fair) and since starting D & B Handmade, it is has become so much more important to support other makers.
Since childhood I have always loved to create, built and work with my hands, and often crafted with my grandmother pretty much anything. So I guess it was a natural step at some point.
A little inspiration from my great grandmothers vintage Singer sewing machine that had been handed down to me, plus a little push from some pregnancy hormones and I may have developed a teeny tiny addiction to fabrics. Ok, lets be honest, I may be slightly under reporting the addiction...yikes!
I love that this hobby of mine creates the most cozy and crinkly quilts and goodies for your special littles and for your home to be cherished forever.
I am hugely grateful for the support that has been given to Duke & Bug Handmade. A big thank you to everyone out there who has and continues to choose to shop small, local, and handmade!
Please be patient with me and don't be afraid to request custom orders. I love working together to come up with new and exciting designs!
