A Brief History

A Brief History

Ruff Creek Crafts was established 30 years ago by Viola McMurray and her daughter Lauren Stauffer. The mother daughter team made and sold plastic canvas crafts, hair and fashion accessories, painted ceramics, and crocheted items for the home. Although Viola passed away in 2003, she continues to be a source of found memories and inspiration. Recently, a third generation began producing handcrafted items for RCC using traditional methods and some new ideas.

Although Ruff Creek Crafts continues to participate in local shows (some they have attended for decades), the business was first introduced to Facebook in mid-2012. After receiving tremendous support from customers, RCC expanded further in August 2013 and established their virtual general store at RuffCreekCrafts.com.
