Craftster.org was started in August 2003 by Leah Kramer a computer programmer and self-proclaimed craft junkie. Leah has been crafting ever since she could hold a pair of safety scissors. Somewhere along the lines she thinks she inhaled too much glue because now she is attracted to crafts that are irreverent, ironic, kitschy, or cleverly eco-friendly. She resides in Boston where she is part-owner owner of the "coolest store ever," Magpie, and is an organizer of the not-your-grandma's craft fair Bazaar Bizarre.
