Hannelore Sotzek is a Niagara Region (Ontario, Canada) talent whose passion has always been for all things books. A proud English literature major, Hannelore found success in book publishing as a researcher, writer, and editor. Being crafty by nature, it was a natural transition from creating text to making the physical book itself. In 2009, Hannelore launched Hannelore's Story Works. Since then, she has exhibited at renowned arts & crafts shows, such as the One of a Kind Show and the Handmade Market, and has established integral wholesale relationships with independent stores across Canada. At the core of it all, Hannelore is driven to create beautiful and durable handbound books so well made that others might be inspired to capture their own story.
