Bags & Beyond

Kathy Engelstad, owner of Bags and Beyond.

I created this business to share my creative bags and other home sewn items.  I not only sew, but am also an accomplished singer and retired Speech Language Therapy Assistant.  I love making new items and happily accept the challenge of filling custom orders.

I moved to Kansas from Washington State in July of 2017 to be closer to my son and his family.

My education background is a Bachelor of Arts in Management Studies, emphasis in Arts Management.  I also have a Bachelor of Science degree in Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education and a Fundraising Management Certificate (Post Bachelor). 

Although I used these degrees for my career, I now am enjoying my retirement and getting my hands into creating treasures.
