MiKri World LLC began selling craft, embroidery and sewing supplies in April 2014. It operates out of Lafayette, IN and is owned by Kris Baker.
The name of the business is actually the first three letters of Mike and Kris’ names (MIK and KRI, sharing the “K”) and was the brain child of Mike. Mike actually is the one that started MiKri World and decided to start selling supplies in April 2014. Kris did a bit of the publicity for the business at that time and helped choose what supplies would be stocked in the shop, but was not overly active in the business at that time due to recovering from a life changing surgery. It was not until August that Kris felt that she had recovered enough to become more involved in the business and took on the daily operations of the business full time.
MiKri World LLC is a brick and mortar store.
Our store hours are:
Monday - Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm EST
Saturday 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST Saturday
Kris maintains the MiKri World LLC's social media accounts and the MiKri World LLC Website. She has often said that her goal is to not only provide their customers with useful and great priced products, but to raise the bar and set a new standard for customer service. Kris has many years of retail management and it shows in the daily operations of MiKri World LLC.
Mike, is very busy as he works full time outside of MiKri World LLC. He is not involved in the daily operations at this time due to his work schedule, but he helps out when he can on his vacation days and on Sundays if needed.
Amanda is our store manager and oversees all the daily operations of the sales floor, assists in pulling and packing orders as well as shipping. She also oversees the cut room and helps out there when needed. Amanda also has many years in retail management and it shows in her excellent customer service. She is friendly and outgoing and if you come to our store she will probably be the first person you meet from the team.
The Shipping Department Team:
Jamie is the one that pulls and packages your orders and also does shipping when needed. He loves what he does and is always curious as to what everyone is making with the products they purchase. He is, just like you, excited to see the new products that come in.
Diane worked for both Kris and Amanda in the past and it was a natural fit when we were looking for someone to come on board for shipping. She is great at finding the lowest possible price point for shipping your orders while still maintaining our outstanding shipping times. She is the one that can provide you with the status of your order, when it shipped, tracking number etc.
The Cut Room Team:
Sammantha spends most of her time in the cut room ensuring that Jamie has what he needs to pull your order! We consider our cut room the heart beat of the business and she keeps it going without skipping a beat. She is our full time cutter, but she can fill in, in the shipping department if it is needed.
Dietrich is a full time student who works part time in the cut room. He works just a couple of days a week as he works to obtain his Associate's Degree. He is VERY smart and like Sammantha keeps the cut room going.
In reality Kris is almost always available via email. Actually, if you ask anyone it seems like Kris never sleeps.
Mike and Kris both embroider and each have their own machines. When time allows they enjoy golfing, riding their Harley Davidsons (Kris actually rides a Trike) and spending time with family.
