I do what I love and Love what I do-

Hi, my name is Debra Wiitanen and I have owned and operated Ethnic Creations since 1978.  

I have always made things with my hands since I was a small child.

When I got married in 1970, I started making things for my home.  Then needed to find a way to bring income in the home without day care.  So I started my business selling things out side of my home with my 3 kids, going to fairs around the area.

It wasn’t easy hauling my items, setting up a tent, and selling my items.  Later on I had my grandkids help me and we had a lot of fun.

I opened a studio at my home in Embarrass where I live and have a shop to sell my wares.

In the studio I make and teach the things I know; quilting, felting, weaving, needle art, spinning, and much more.

Being off of the beaten path, business was slow so my husband and I started to pack for fairs again.

I love what I do and I do what I love and I wouldn’t change a thing.
