Hello! My name is Kate Petersen and I am the "Elsie" half of "Hattie & Elsie". A little about me...I'm a single mom of two fabulous kids, ages 6 and 18. 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.
