This was a big hit and she sold over 1 million craft books in the years that followed. At first she started to make books and products for other companies, but she wanted to do more and started developing her own products. In 1994 she founded Marianne Design B.V. and started developing new crafts and adequate products to go along with it for the Dutch market. To this day she still coaches authors who write crafts books. Marianne: “It is fantastic to see how creative people are and how crafts can excite them!”.

The company has concentrated on supplying customers and consumers with the highest level of products and inspiration. For this Marianne still leads the company herself and she has surrounded herself with a passionate and experienced team. Marianne Design is a much loved brand.
