- About Us
Elastic by the Yard started the way many "home businesses" began - at the dining room table. After the birth of Kristin's second daughter, She - like many moms who leave the workforce to stay home - She found herself looking for something structured that she could accomplish each day to keep her mind from turning to mush. Seeing so many moms resorting to dying elastic in their washing machines, she knew there had to be a better way. So - with just three colors of skinny elastic and an empty dining room table - "Elastic by the Yard" was born.
Six months later, she had outgrown her dining room (and eventually she had to sleep!), so she hired another mom to help her out. She continued to grow from there, and after 9 months, she moved to a picturesque barn down a dirt road (you should see the sunsets!). She then employed several moms in her small town, allowing them to work close to home.
She always loved business, and never dreamed this would turn into something that would not only help provide for her family without taking her away from her kids, but also allow her to make that a reality for the moms who work at EBTY and to help hundreds of other entrepreneurial crafty moms out there. If you’re one of them and you’re new to EBTY, drop us a line and let us know your story.
As of March 2015 "Elastic By The Yard" is now operated by Patty. The business has moved from Texas to Pennsylvania, to the very small town of Shippensburg (5 miles from the center of the town). The nearest soda machine is 5 miles away. Many of our neighbors are Amish and drive by in their buggies. Patty loves sewing and making all kinds of crafts.
