"You never know what you can learn from another soapmaker."


Lone Star was founded on January 1, 2010, by Starlene Moore and Elin Criswell. 

In 2014, Elin became the sole owner of Lone Star Soap & Toiletries.

On July 13, 2019 at the 10th Annual Soapmakers Seminar, the group was rebranded as relaunched as Lone Star Soapers Networking Group. New website coming soon!
