Backwoods Stampers: The One-Stop Shop For Gettin’ Crafty


Ready to get crafty?


That's exactly what Jill Stover helps folks do!


We had a chance to get to know Jill through some Q&A and here's what we learned about how she uses crafts as "therapy":

Q&A with Jill Stover

1

Give us a brief background of who you are for those that don't know.

I work in healthcare. When I’m not working or taking care of my family I love to get creative! I started scrapbooking 20 years ago and began making cards 12 years ago. I loved it so much I decided to get the discount by becoming a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! I teach crafty classes to anyone that would like to learn. 

2

How long have you served people in the area?

I originally started classes 8 years ago and had to stop for a few years. I have been back to teaching classes monthly for 4 years. 

3

What is your business offering for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas and any other holiday?

Stampin’ Up will run its own promotions. I announce that on my Backwoods Stampers Facebook page, by email and text. I also offer a holiday special starting in December.

Is your business offering any special events?

I do many special events all year long. BOGO sale, bingo, make n takes, Card buffets, Christmas Card “club”, Birthday Bash, Framed Art and more!  I have an upcoming event in Littlestown at Ice Cream Ally's Coffee Cafe.

Is your business offering any special discounts?

Stampin’ Up offers different specials. I announce them on my group Facebook page, Backwoods Stampers, by text and email. There is always a “join my team” special January through March.

Tell us about your main products and services. What do customers love the most?

My customers love that it is a one stop shop for gettin’ Crafty! They can purchase products from the catalog that all coordinate with each order. If you scrapbook, make hand made cards or homemade crafts we have ya covered! My customers love the options I give at my classes. They can pay for the class or purchase products and the class is free! Knowing that they have a night for themselves to enjoy with others is very important. Meeting new friends is an extra bonus.

What types of local events do you enjoy the most?

I enjoy when I get to entertain in others homes or in my craft room. Getting friends together to have a fun crafty time means something. Some use Stampin’ as their therapy. I love when people approach me and ask for me to come do a private class for them and a few friends. 

8

Do you have any other businesses or ventures you want to mention?

I would love to start a Scrapbooking club. I’m hoping to add 12 hour retreats and weekend retreats. People would get to create whatever they want and have the chance to do an optional class. I want to do this so we can have a longer time together and get so much more done!
