DOTW-Jessica-Gowling

Jessica Gowling is the creative talent behind Nature’s My Friend. When we heard her described as a “traditional printmaker, animal hugger, forest adventurer, and creative blogger“, we knew she was somebody we needed to get to know better!

Sarah Mulder

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Sarah Mulder is returning for another year at our Vancouver show, and making her Edmonton debut this year! We caught up with her last week, to find out what she’s got in store for us.

.

What’s your backstory? How did you start making things? How have you grown?

I have been “making” since I was a child. My grandma would babysit me after preschool and roll a massive piece of paper across her table…she said that I was so easy to take care of- put a pencil in my hand and I would spend hours drawing until I went home. I started making assemblage and beaded jewelry when I was a teenager and since then have self-taught myself everything I know. I’ve been selling at craft fairs since I was 18 years old!

Fox & Fancy

Friday, September 27th, 2013

We are so excited that Fox & Fancy be at Make It for the first time this year! Meet Rachel and Lisa, the ladies who make cunning jewellery, décor, and party trimmings.

What’s the story behind Fox & Fancy?

It’s no secret that we’re both completely obsessed with crafting – it’s what initially drew us together as friends and shortly after, business partners.  I think we were both pretty jealous of the other’s studio space when we first met!  Our mutual love of all things handmade led to many late-night craft and cocktail sessions, and a few months later Fox & Fancy was born.  (Naturally, the friend who introduced us takes all the credit.)  Fox & Fancy just celebrated its first year anniversary, and we’re so excited to see what year two has in store for us!
