About Us

THREE GENERATIONS OF CRAFTERS

Who We Are

Dating back to 2008, Schrader Creations has been a number of different things.  We were originally called Love Knots Jewelry when I designed and hand made all the jewelry for my wedding. After receiving positive feedback, I decided to create additional designs and sold them at local craft fairs.  Through the next few years, I fell back into my cooking roots and started making homemade truffles and baked goods, where we picked up the name Schrader Creations.

Schrader Creations The History
Valley Central Craft Fair 2019

When my husband and I located back to the east coast, Schrader Creations took a short hiatus to be with family.  In late 2018, my Mother in Law, Barbara, started making diamond paintings as gifts. I saw how much fun she was having and convinced my daughter to start crafting with me, as it was our true passion.

After a few months, we all had more pieces that we were able to gift to friends. This is was the nudge to get Schrader Creations back up and running.

Valley Central Craft Fair 2019

During the last few years, craft fairs were limited, sometimes too far away or even too expense.  I saw there was a need for local crafters/artisans to have a space to showcase their creations.  After searching for a space, I finally found my perfect location.  We opened September 2, 2022, in the Apple Valley Village in Milford, PA

90% of all products in the shop are handmade by local crafters/artisans.  We have Home Decor, Pens, Soaps, Jewelry, Jams/Jellies, and Tumblers!  What I am really excited for is the raw materials we have as well, such as Chalk and Enamel paints, brushes, rub on transfers, decorative tissue paper and more.  Starting in October, we will be offering classes for both adults and children.  Classes will range in price and may include Home Decor items, Sip and Paints as well as kid friendly projects. 

Our GRAND OPENING celebration is scheduled for October 1, 2022!  We are very excited to share these crafters and artisans with the community!
