When Brenda Preuss retired from the computer field, she and her husband, Paul, moved to Tennessee. Brenda’s plan for her retirement years was to share the knowledge of products and rubber stamping that she had learned around the Chicago area. So, they built their home with a craft/class room on the lower level to serve as her class room. After a couple of years, she realized that there was no place less than a 45 minute or more drive time to purchase many of the products, except on-line. But there was even less of an availability of complete and accurate information regarding these products.

She then decided that she would create a small shop in her craft/class room. This was in 2003, and her shop was called Stamping on the Plateau. This served her well for many years. However, she started searching for another place to teach and to sell some of her many products and stamps.  She visited the Crossville Outlet Mall just to see if there was anything possible there. That is when she met Bob Wyrick, then owner of Picture Perfect/This Old Glove, who provides excellent custom framing along with many sports memorabilia. She rented space from him until January 1, 2017 when they became partners of a new store called Framing + Art and Craft Supplies (commonly referred to as FACS). They decided that this small town of creative individuals needed a Fine Arts Supply store in addition to the many items and services currently offered in Bob and Brenda’s store.

Now things have changed again. The store is basically the same except much larger with many more renters. Also, the partnership between Bob and Brenda came to an end when Bob decided to retire as of November 2019. That left Brenda with the decision whether to close or stay open and continue without Bob. She chose the latter thanks to the great support from all of the FACS renters. Her son-in-law, Bill Beckett, purchased the sports collectibles from Bob (minus several of Bob’s Yankee memorabilia) and has joined Brenda in a new partnership. Because FACS no longer offers framing, the store name has been modified to be FACS: For Art, Crafts & Sports.

Although Brenda does not consider herself a person who can draw easily, she does consider herself an artist. She learned many things about art from her mother who was an excellent oil, pastel and china painting artist. She often visits the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA, but now called AFCI) Mega Shows to learn about as many of the newly released products as she can, attending classes and demonstrations to learn enough to share that knowledge with her customers. She also reaches out to many of the national instructors to request they come to the area to share their knowledge. Some of the instructors she has had here are Fred Mullett of Fred Mullett Rubber Stamps known for his beautiful watercolor techniques; John Creighton Petersen instructor for Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts, Ice Resin, Finnabair & Prima Marketing known for his mixed media creations; and most recently, Tristina Dietz-Elmes, the certified instructor of amazing Pebeo products for North America and Canada.

Brenda’s goal is to provide the products and supplies necessary for individual creative explorations, along with classes and demonstrations on how to use them. She spends much of her time researching the many new products available. She also listens to your requests and attempts to meet your creative needs. FACS provides supplies which are of excellent, professional quality at a reasonable price for fine artists, rubber stampers, and crafters.
