Square Dancing Pals – Became Y Crafts


y craft ladies SMElise and Sandra met and became friends while square dancing. It turned out that both had a love for creating things with their hands. Elise had been selling her crafts for twelve years in the Ellensberg Farmer’s Market. She encouraged Sandra to join her and together they became – Y Crafts.

Her latest creation is the jean apron. It’s cute, long lasting and best of all it was repurposed. Elise’s pride and joy is her gel candles. She beams as she holds it up to show what she did all on her own.  These two are both self-taught and the cold weather is the tickler for their fingers to get back to work.

They laugh as they talk about creating an assembly line to create what they have in their booths. Sandra and Elise craft out of friendship and enjoyment.

Stop by and see what they’ve got at the Friday Farmers Market Everett Mall every Friday from 3 to 7pm. It is never too early to stock up on holiday gifts. The season will be upon us before we know it.
