We want you to get to know the people you 'see' as well as those who are working behind the scenes. We have a great team that works hard to make sure we are giving our customers the best experiences, inspiration, and service!
Hen & Chicks Studio, Owner
After a more than 30-year professional quilting career, and more than 40 years of crafting (including being a 10-year 4H member), owner, Heidi Kaisand, decided to combine her experience and passion for inspiring creativity in others into a new business venture. Heidi indulges her creative spirit at Hen & Chicks Studio by helping individuals and groups succeed at quilting, scrap booking, and other art forms.
When Heidi's not working, she loves to spend time with her family (Jeff, Henry, Virginia and Goldie), sewing and scrap booking as often as possible.

The dynamic duo that we all love and adore! Creative in every way, these girls are also very knowledgeable with all aspects of keeping the store running! They are excellent at quilting and running the longarm alike. These girls keep the store hopping with their laughter and questions. Our customers enjoy having these wonderful young ladies assist them.
Stacey is fun addition to the studio. Stacey is active in customer service on the studio floor as well as many of the behind the scene tasks. If you retreat with us, you will most likely get a phone call from Stacey! She is also the mastermind behind our 'famous' tiktoks.
