  Meet The Owner - Pagle Helterbrand

A passion for providing joy to people in a space to unwind led Pagle Helterbrand to start Hammer & Stain Plain City. After a highly accomplished HR career, Pagle decided it was time for a change of pace and to pursue her dream of starting a do-it-yourself studio. With so many new things happening downtown, Pagle saw an opportunity to bring in a creative workshop experience that would allow families and friends to relax and create lasting memories together.

Outside of the workshop, Pagle enjoys spending quality time with her family. Pagle is happily married with three grown children, a granddaughter and three furry family members. The Plain City area has been home to her family for over 10 years, two of her three children graduated from  Fairbanks schools. This is an exciting chapter for Pagle and her family and they all look forward to serving the community for years to come!
