About Us

Locally owned and operated since 1973, Ben Franklin has evolved into a specialty craft store, with several other stores under one roof.

We provide exceptional customer service and continual craft events.  We delight in bringing people of all ages together to participate in our craft classes, make-it/take-it’s, and other special events.

Ben Franklin Crafts is “the place to go” for a friendly, supportive environment where families and friends can explore their creative potential.

Let’s Craft the Holidays!

Watch this space for a weekly preview of our virtual make & take projects for the 2014 Holidays, then click the photo for supplies & a Snapguide tutorial!

Lets Craft the Holidays with Ben Franklin Crafts - Oconomowoc. Create this easy paper basket from just 1 piece of scrapbook paper. Leave it plain for an (almost) instant basket, or add embellishments if you like.

 “Let’s Craft the Holidays” will take you from now through the New Year with projects that are fun & easy for crafters of all ages!
