Owning AR Workshop Frisco is a dream come true for Lindsay Childress. At a young age, she discovered her penchant for sales and eye for design. It all began as the top cookie seller in her Girl Scout troop and continued by mastering layouts and custom hand lettering as an editor on her high school yearbook. In college, she managed a pottery painting studio before setting off into a 15+ year career in retail where she designed and sold licensed tees to major retailers across the country. Despite her professional success, she longed for more creativity. As she grew her career, she kept her design and painting hobbies alive through volunteer work and crafting with her two children. When Lindsay found AR Workshop in Westfield, NJ, she discovered what she what she was looking for all along. The AR Workshop experience inspired her passionate DIY, craftinista spirit to open a new location in the flourishing town of Frisco with surrounding towns of McKinney, Plano, Little Elm, Prosper, Celina and The Colony.
