about

Robar Designs is excited to bring a new updated website to you.  Check out our pattern packets, wood kits, ball knobs, as well as all of Mary Helen Gould's patterns and tole painting books.

My name is Barbara Bordelon, I was born and raised in Crossville, Tennessee and I have enjoyed crafting for many years. I was about 8 years old when my grandmother began to teach me to sew, knit, crochet, and even to quilt, though at the time I never thought of it as crafting. I started painting about fifteen years ago. I am self-taught and I began because a good friend told me I could do it. After that I went into business and started selling at craft shows around the state of Florida.

My husband, Roland, cuts all the wood for me. He is originally from Louisiana. We have 6 children who are all grown and living away from home and 7 grandchildren. An important member of our family is  a short legged rat terrier named Louie, he is so enjoyable.  We have a cat that thinks she is the owner of the house, her name is 'Velcro'. She got her name when she was brand new from staying attached to whatever she was laying on when she was picked up.

Our goal in bringing you this new website is to provide you, our valued customers, with a user friendly site. This new website also gives us the ability to offer you our new designs as soon as they are created. We will be offering specials as we go along. I welcome suggestions and would LOVE to hear from you. I can be reached by phone (407) 671-9473 or by email robar@cfl.rr.com.
