If you’ve been to the Farmer’s Market at all this year, you’ve probably seen this local artist’s work.

Terri Hambruch has taken a passion for creating and has turned it into  something her whole family can get involved with.

Hambruch works with a variety of mediums including beads, stained glass, knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, decoupage, needle work and more.

Hambruch said she believes she has many different interests because she is  Gemini.

“I get bored with something very easily. So I have a whole bunch of crafts that I cycle through,” she said.

Over the past 10 years Hambruch has taken to one hobby in particular, beading. It is definitely a passion of hers.

“I like making stuff and doing something with my hands. My mom taught me to knit when I was 15. I got into doing glasswork and it was a natural progression through stained glass to working with the beads,” she said.

In her first year selling at one of the local markets, the reaction to Hambruch’s beautiful creations  has been very positive.

“They really like it. Glass is such a beautiful medium. Even before you do anything with it, it is beautiful,” she said.

Selling at the local markets started out when Hambruch’s husband Chris and daughter Dassie realized that they enjoyed selling her work.

“I decided if they enjoyed doing that then I would make things for them to sell,” she said.

“Those two enjoy so much sitting at the market that I gave them something to sell.”

At the end of the market season Hambruch admitted that she had sold much more than she had originally anticipated when the idea first came up.

Hambruch will be selling her glass works and other hand made items at the Christmas craft fair this year and has plans to add more items to her table in the future.

Look for her table at the Christmas Craft Faire, taking place this year on November 16 and 17.
