Two Truths and a Lie with Violet Craft – the big reveal!

On Friday we posted three statements about Violet Craft and asked you to guess which one is a lie. Here they are again, with the answers!

1. Violet Craft is my real name.

True. I married into the name Craft. My maiden name is Violet Baalman. No one believes Violet Craft is my real name!

2. I started sewing at a very young age and learned to sew with the help of my great-grandmother. 

Lie. I bought my first sewing machine with my high school graduation money and sort of taught myself to sew when I was skipping my college courses One of my first projects was reupholstering a couch in patchwork! I pretty much put the machine away for about ten years until I was pregnant with my first daughter.

3. It took me seven years to complete my undergraduate degree. 

True. I changed majors and colleges multiple times – Data Processing, Organic Chemistry, Pre-Medicine – before completely switching to Business. I have a Bachelor’s of Administration in Computer Information Systems with emphases in Finance and Marketing from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas. Go, Tigers! I did stints at Dodge City Community College (Go, Conquistadors!) and University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!) Even though I didn’t graduate from KU, I will always consider myself a Jayhawk AND a Tiger! You might notice no mention of art in there… because there is none. I have no formal education in art, but grew up in a home filled with art, music and crafting, Kansas style
