A Chat with Strawberry Swing’s Curator Katie!!

I sat down with Katie co-founder of Craft Show CEO, the mastermind behind my favorite indie craft fair, The Strawberry Swing! We chatted about how I got started with the sewing pattern company I founded, Indygo Junction, which dates back to my days in high school when I launched a business making teddy bears, recycling fabric from fur coats I found at thrift shops.

Here’s What We Talked About:

1:30 The story of the business I launched in high school, The Martin Collection. I designed teddy bears made from vintage coats I upcycled!

5:00 Fun sewing projects: Indygo Junction’s Fabriflair® line: The Pocketbook Wristlet Pattern and The BrioSphere Kit & Faceted Sphere Pattern.

10:00 My discovering of The Woman’s Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences and my Vintage Notions book which I published based on the school’s inspiring essays, sewing lessons and Magic Patterns.

9:10 FREE Printables: Mother-of-Pearl Button Card Graphics to make cards and gift tags.

15:00 More Vintage Made Modern inspiration: Vintage Notions Coloring book Pattern Play and my Embroidery books, Folk Art Motifs & Land That I Love: Customize & Embroider Projects for Your State!

19:00 Notions bulk packs now available by Dritz®
