Manufacturer Description: Paulette Jarvey, owner and President of Hot Off The Press, believes EVERYONE is creative.
In fact, this belief inspired Paulette to establish her company, Hot Off The Press. “I wanted to produce books and products to make crafters successful,” she says. “My mission was—and still is—to foster confidence and self-esteem in crafters of all ages and any skill level.”
The company began on Paulette’s kitchen table in 1980 with the help of friends and family. She was raising a family while teaching classes on dough art at a community college. When students urged her to write a how-to book, she was inspired—and Hot Off The Press was born.
