Our History

Starlene Moore and Elin Criswell

Williamson Conference Center

"You never know what you can learn from another soap maker!"

We are a Texas-based soap and toiletry maker's group.

Our goal is to provide a friendly, positive environment in which to network with others,

learn from each other and to encourage each other in our mutual craft.

Lone Star was founded on January 1, 2010,

by two soapmaker friends, Starlene Moore and Elin Criswell.  

In 2014, Star turned the reins over to Elin,

who now owns and operates Lone Star.  

Elin is a fourth-generation Texas soapmaker of Swedish descent.

She has been making soap for over 16 years and sells her products

through her business, The Country Soaper. She is also the author of 

Creative Soap Making and ​Bubbles to Bucks... How to Make Money Selling Soap..
