Hallmark Studio Artists stopping in Issaquah

Hallmark artists will meet fans at Paula’s Hallmark in Issaquah on Oct. 20.

Paula’s Hallmark in Issaquah will host two touring Hallmark Keepsake Studio artists on Oct. 20.

Keepsake Studio artists Orville Wilson and Terri Steiger are visiting 20 Hallmark Gold Crown stores throughout the country and making a stop in Washington. This year, that stop is in Issaquah. The event is 9 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Wilson started his career at Hallmark in season cards, but he was interested in Keepsake 3-D designing and was later selected to work with that group. Outside of work, he enjoys travel, martial arts and video gaming. One of his favorite ornaments that he has worked on was based on the Pac-Man arcade game.

Steiger graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design. After college, she was recruited by Hallmark and became a greeting card designer. A few years later, she decided to freelance, which gave her an opportunity to travel around the U.S. and to take a mission trip to Russia. Missing Hallmark, she returned and eventually worked in almost all the creative areas. She was drawn to Keepsakes because she likes making 3-D gifts, and she enjoys learning something new.

The store will have a featured event piece, a limited edition Keepsake ornament, Santa’s Sweet Treat Cart, available for a limited time. Paula’s Hallmark Shop is located at 1175 NW Gilman Blvd. Town And Country Square, Issaquah, WA 98027.
