About Me

Hello! My name is Kate Petersen and I am the "Elsie" half of "Hattie & Elsie".  A little about me...I'm a mom of two fabulous kids, ages 8 and 20. I started Hattie & Elsie as a hobby in 2014 for extra income while working on my teaching degree. After graduating in 2016, I decided to dive into my business head first so I could stay home with my daughter. I began vending at shows and selling at local shops.  I now own my own brick-and-mortar store in Milton, WI, which opened June 2021. 

My mom, Christy, is the "Hattie" half of "Hattie & Elsie".  She taught me everything I know about being a maker.  She was a crafter in the 80's and early 90's and I was often her assistant.  I am thankful that I learned from her and have been able to turn that knowledge and talent into my own business to support my family.  She also sells and works at Hattie & Elsie.

You can find Hattie & Elsie products at our store 650 College St Milton, WI.  Follow my Facebook or Instagram pages for updates.
