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.
