About Hannah Schlachter

Hi!  I’m Hannah Schlachter and I’m a DIY enthusiast, artist and home cook.  I love to create things with my hands and when I’m not working my day job I’m always making something!

I live in Chicago, IL with my husband Adam and our adorable dog Abby.

Back in 2018 I started Handmade Weekly to share my hobbies with my family and friends.  I quickly discovered that I had a knack for creating unique projects and writing valuable step by step tutorials.  I love to solve problems and I’m extremely detail oriented.  It must be my training as a civil engineer.

To help in my mission, my tutorials, free printable downloads and recipes have been featured on several reputable online publications, including but not limited to:
