From 1981 until 1990 Wheatcraft Industries grew from a small home based business to one that filled a niche market nationally. Everyone dreams of owning a home based business and Wheatcraft was the dream that worked for Joyce Banbury. The journey began in August of 1981 with a wheatweaving class at the local art center in Russell, Kansas. A few wheatweaving lessons started her a new homebased business that doubled its revenues each year until it was sold in 1990.. There were several reasons a Weatweaving business thrived for Joyce during this ten year period.
  • She could operate it entirely from her home
  • Raw materials were inexpensive and easy to find (Kansas wheat was the major material used for the craft)
  • It wasn't a difficult craft to learn and it fit her creative talent and background in design.
  • The Crafts industry was popular and growing and craft shows were a viable and inexpensive marketplace for selling wheatweaving.
  • There was a demand for both supplies and finished products for the market
  • Kansas was a natural supply and demand state for operating this type of business
