My name is Amanda Stanford, owner of Craft it NC and an English professor at Wingate University.  My husband Ryan and I created Craft it NC to help support development of arts and crafts in the Matthews and Indian Trail area.  We began crafting about the same time we moved to Scotland in 2009.  We relocated to the Charlotte area in 2013 and truly love this location of ours south of the city.  We enjoy making a variety of different things but we definitely understand how difficult it can be for crafters to get started.  A space to work, tools, craft fairs, knowledge, marketing, networking – these are all things we’d like to share with the community.  So come on in, have a cup of tea, learn something new, and have a little fun!
