Our Motto … “You never know what you will learn, from another soapmaker!

Whether you are new to the craft, or have been making soap for years … YOU ARE WELCOME HERE!!!

Why soap alone?

WHO WE ARE

Lone Star Soapers Networking Group is owned and operated by Elin Criswell, a.k.a., The Country Soaper. She runs Lone Star along with her team of very dedicated volunteers.

Lone Star was originally known as Lone Star Soap & Toiletries and was founded on January 1, 2010 by Starlene Moore (right) and Elin Criswell (left). It was Starlene’s vision to start a soapmaker’s group to serve the needs of Texas soapmakers and beyond. Since 2014, Elin has served as Lone Star’s sole owner.

In July of 2019, Lone Star was rebranded and relaunched as the Lone Star Soapers Networking Group.

OUR MISSION

Lone Star Soapers Networking Group is dedicated to the preservation and continuance of the time-honored craft and art of soapmaking.

We provide support and continuing education for both beginning and experienced soapmakers. 

WHAT WE DO

We provide a friendly, positive environment for soapmakers to learn while encouraging each other in our mutual craft.

We do this through our online community, online member resources and by attending our events … the Soapmaker’s Seminar (held in the summer) and the Lone Star Winter Retreat (held the last weekend in January).
