About Us

Crafters Corner is like a DREAM COME TRUE.....but truly saying it was not pre planned....it just happened... 
Yessss its quite shocking to know that it just happened but i think most of the good things happen for no reason as they are planned by someone else for you ....so all thanks to my almighty for this.
Ofcourse all this was not possible without my husband VIKAS MITTAL who is my backbone for everything....
A very special thanks to him .....

Today I want to share the real story behind CRAFTERS CORNER and the person behind this ...yes thats me SHALINI MITTAL.
Its my first time when I am sharing all this so I am very excited and nervous too.....
In the year 2006 when quilling seemed to be a latest craze in hobbies... I also decided to try my hands in it and so I joined a very small course for the same and started exploring my ideas with whatever products were available at that time for quilling but may be that feeling of having "EVERYTHING AVAILBLE UNDER ONE ROOF" in India started bothering me very soon .....beacuse since childhood I have been in a habit of going into full depth till I explore that to the end....
So....
I happened to search Google like Crazies and I tried to find out the all supplies of quilling everywhere in India becuase I just desperately wanted all the tools so that I could give my hands a lot of new toys to play with.
But all gone in VAIN .....what I could barely find was few quilling strips ,a quilling tool, a quilling crimper and a quilling tweezer.....rest all supplies seemed to be a "DREAM" to get it here...
Although looking at some foreign websites and their prouduct range in hobby section I went mad...and what I could understand that the possibilities were endless and sky is the limit...

They had so many things which could give life to any project and could enhance it to next level....which was beyond my imagaination...it was a different world altogether and I looked like a HUNGRY CHILD to grab all those....i just wished if they could fly to me immediately...
And there I got a very strong and wierd feeling that I want these.....so as a good and intelligent buyer I started looking for the options of getting these with absolutely FREE SHIPPING as they were exorbitantly priced for me.
So the option was to conatct my realtives and looked for the favour .....and ....I did contact quite a few relatives of mine who STAYED ABROAD ...I had not spoken to them for years but this was the high time to have some chat ..lol

So I tried my best to have a word with each one of them starting from the ones who stayed near to the company address but sad to say that everybody seemed to have been travelling to India after months to get those for me...And now the problem was who could afford to WAIT FOR SO LONG.. so I decided to try something very different...by using a creit card ...
OMG it was a new thing at that time for me to try on...unlike today where I do order a lot of grocery too online and pay via credit card.. :P
It was a blasting news for my husband to know that I was planning to do some online shopping via card...so next came a convincing session for the same and finally with a lot of effort ....and as a good wife I won .....and it was the time to use the card which was more like a show piece in my wallet for years.....but the tension was super high for me ...but somehow I managed to order some craft supplies along with the ones which I never planned to buy....and the total was huge although it did appear small in DOLLARS and the leftover was covered with the shipping charges....Omg it looked like a deciding point for me whether to checkout from the site or not BUT as you know who can control shopping after selecting and adding products to the cart...so i clicked..AND PAID....
And the credit card company was super fast to send me a message on my mobile with the total amount which they could even done after my lunch....but anyways.....I still managed for my lunch.
Now the next important step was to take care of credit card monthly statement....but anyhow that was a later stage before that I received my parcel with a super fast delivery in 4 days with a bomarding custom duty which killed me almost ...
Now one more devil was there in front of my eyes in the form of that courier guy but as righlty said Beggars are not Choosers so I decided to pay and go ahead...
Now was the time to cherish the supplies before the card statement comes...and I loved my supplies like anything after all they were also not planned to be in my stash .
But I must confess one thing that I was highly shocked to see that how much these craft supplies companies can make our life easier by developing such awesome supplies...
They are so very well planned and researched before they come into market starting from their structure to material used.....
Awesome is a small word for the same.
But this was not all....now I wanted more stuff like attachmnets, and its accesories....and what not....???
So there I decided to contact the company for some help if they could offer me some discount but as a good company they did refuse for such a small amount which was quite understood....
So what next .....now I couldnt afford these supplies anymore at same prices so I dropped the idea for sometime...
But meanwhile I planned to learn the product by heart ( not only quilling...but everything i got) which i had got ....
And I researched a lot and polished myself to the core about the products and after that one fine day somewhere in the year 2008 I decided to start taking classes and then I understood that with these supplies we could do wonders...
So there I decided that now I would get these supplies in bulk and help my students in using these and start stocking these for crazy crafters like me....
And after a few sessions of classes I got that confidence that now I can call the supplies and people also want them badly ...so there came a stage when I bought the same supplies from the company and ordered my first parcel but to make sure they fall cheaper and I could save some shipping I used a service (name I cant write...but most of the crafters will know ...lol) which barely had any tracking details once it reaches to India and to my bad luck in trying to save some pennies ....I lost the parcel .....so here was the another shock ....
Anywyas that was a big lesson for me to understand that reliabale company and reliable courier both are equally important...
So that was the turning point for everything and specially for my thought process..... and then I tied up with the best courier companies and got my stuff from relaibale courier companies only...and I did receive my parcels everytime well on the time with a gift of amazing custom duties...lol...

But that was the starting point of getting supplies for our crafters and after that there was no looking back.
