Hi there! My name's Ananda, I'm the founder of Crafts & Drafts. I started C&D (though it wasn't named that yet) in Chicago in August 2015. I had been invited to yet another wine and paint bachelorette party and I'm no good at those paintings at all. I am a crafter though. I was always DIYing everything and I couldn't help but think about how there's so many things you could do besides paint a canvas. I was talking about the idea to a friend and they informed they knew a guy with a bar. They hooked me up. The bar and I chatted and decided on some dates. So, long story short, I decided to try out a few events and it was a hit! It's been a long, hard, evolving road but it's been great. I'm so excited to get to share my creativity with you over nice cold beer.
