In the News!!

So, a while back I was contacted through Etsy by a writer for an online Seattle newspaper, NW Source. She was writing an article on local handmade winter wear, and asked if I’d be interested in participating. OF COURSE!! The interview was a lot of fun and I got to do a bit of self reflecting.

Today, that article is finally published!!

Via nwsource.com, written by Andrea Delimont Dashiell:

As temperatures drop, it’s time to hunt down the perfect keep-you-warm wintertime accessories, and for unique hand-knit and crocheted items, there’s no place like Etsy.com.

The online marketplace for handmade goods has grown steadily in the five years since its launch, and with the Shop Local feature, it’s easy to find talented artisans who are close to home. For cozy knits, check out the online shops of these local Etsy sellers:

Marin Sevy: Color junkie Marin Sevy admits her main inspiration for new pieces comes from spotting yarn in an amazing hue (and then happily bringing it home). The love of color is certainly evident in Sevy’s Etsy shop, Marin Made. The 27-year-old Kirkland-based crafter has a shop full of chunky cowl scarves, beanie hats for men, and other knit and crocheted items (including some for children) in rich colors from mustard and pumpkin to radiant red. On our wish list for this season is the trendy crocheted Newsboy Hat ($24), which is made to order and available in 37 colors.

There are interviews by other local artists as well. Please check it out if you have some time!!
