iMade Boutique was founded by Grant and Amy Schweppe. The husband and wife duo started this business together in the month of July 2011. They met at work at the Apple Store and sparks flew instantly. Grant and Amy had a lot in common including long term goals. They both have similar goals but they have different talents to bring to the table. Grant graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a economics major. He is the business/inventory/sales/manager of the company. Grant makes the magic happen. Amy, on the other hand, is the creative/social networking/customer service specialist. She is the main designer of the products that are handmade in the iMade Boutique store. Anything on a social network that you find about iMade Boutique has been written by Amy.

Two years ago on July 16th 2009, Amy’s father, Ivan Baker, passed away. He has always had to battle with his heart condition. Amy had a very close relationship with her dad. The basis of how we started iMade Boutique is really something that helped Amy get through the day. She loves crafting, scrapbooking and sewing are the things she works the most on. Everything under handmade was made by Amy. Crafting has been a blessing in disguise and to show her love and appreciation, Amy wanted a line which is called, “Papa Bear” in memory of her father. For every purchase made from the Papa Bear Collection, a portion of the proceeds with go to Brian Littrell’s Healthy Heart Club. This is exciting news for our company and we are looking forward to giving back to help to those in need. Please check out the store. Amy can also do special requests as well. Thanks and continue having a healthy heart.

As a team customer service is the core of our philosophy. We strive to always help you get the best products at the best price along with excellent customer service. We are not the ordinary craft store. We want your opinions and we also want you to share your story and experience in the craft world. Check out the blog to see what other customers have made and shared with our online store. Eventually, we hope to be able to have video discussions using FaceTime or Skype. There are a ton of ideas and thoughts of where to take this company, however we are taking it one project at a time. Forgive our construction on our site. We plan to fix it as soon as possible. Thank you.

Grant and Amy
