Why did I get in to vinyl crafting and create Magnolia Vinyl?
A few years ago, I purchased a silhouette for my birthday and began making a few things. Soon I realized that crafting a gift for someone else, was... well...therapy! I was learning, making mistakes, and was in constant need of vinyl. I didn’t like purchasing vinyl online because it was inconsistent in quality and I wanted to see it before I purchased it!
I found a store an hour away that carried lots of vinyl with solids and prints that I liked, but I couldn’t drive there on a regular basis. I started thinking, "I can’t be the only one having these issues". So I asked the antique store, Alyssa’s, if I could add vinyl to my booth. She said, "yes!", and I was so excited to begin this journey!
Long story short, I opened that first location, at Alyssa’s in January of 2017. I quit my job has a hairstylist and a cosmetology instructor and opened my second location in Crestview, Florida in April. During this time I, also, I took the “Terri Johnson Creates” instructor certification to teach Silhouette Cameo classes. I missed teaching and this provides an outlet for me to do that.
It’s been a busy couple of years. We keep growing and learning and LOVING everything that the Vinyl industry has offered! Did I mention, we are, also, certified re-sellers for Siser and Silhouette?
The BEST part of all…I truly love being able to help crafters go to a local store and pickup exactly what they need. After all, it’s the best therapy!
