Thank you for your interest in our NEW Online Craft Store!
My name is Carleyne and I am the Creative Director here at Rustic Sign Night and here's a bit about us and how we got into this amazing craft business!
Back in 2015, my husband and I started deconstructing barns with a simple thought that we should try to preserve as much of it as possible. Sadly, many people are replacing these beautiful wood structures with steel and metal, which means that there will likely be no more barns made of wood within a hundred years. We began digging and realized that a lot of the wood in these beautiful barns was beautiful hardwood and still in amazing shape for something like home decor. In the fall of 2015, many companies in Calgary were downsizing and I was laid off too from my architecture job. About a week later, I found out I was pregnant with our first son - isn't life a funny thing?
So I began an Etsy store during my maternity leave, and began making custom signs for friends and family nearby. We had an abundance of reclaimed wood now and began brainstorming different ways to use it. One cold February afternoon, I was at home painting some custom orders when I thought I should ask my Facebook community their thoughts on some private events where I would teach them how to paint some trending Etsy signs....And that's how Rustic Sign Night began!
We are so truly blessed to still be doing this five years later and it's all thanks to you and other crafty folks like you! We hope you are excited to be a part of the most AMAZING crafting community and we thank you for supporting our local, husband and wife team. We're just two people out there busting barns down, trying to make a truly unique craft product that you'll be proud to have painted at one of our events.
By supporting Rustic Sign Night you are bringing a piece of our Canadian history into your home that will create a conversation piece for years to come.
After purchasing one of our products, you will receive a beautiful craft kit delivered to your door, along with a Youtube Demo video (made by me in our studio) to follow along on your own time if you would prefer that option.
