Today’s spotlight comes from Des Moines, Iowa. Kim Hutchison, owner and designer of Jbirdstitch, will be making the drive to Davenport to join our vendor crew at HMC4! The Jbirdstitch booth will offer handmade oven mitts, market bags, personal and home accessories, made from resourced and vintage fabrics. Jbirdstitch designs are one of a kind items from repurposed materials! We love the adorable oven mitts and vintage felted shoulder bags. Visit the Jbirdstitch Etsy shop and leave Kim a comment on the Jbirdstitch Facebook page telling her which items you love!
Handmade City virgin Totes & Toggles is today’s featured vendor. We love theses colorful bags by Davenport designer Maggie Gripp! Nothing but cute fabric and high quality designs – all handmade of course! Maggie makes more than purses though. You will find checkbook covers, mini wristlets, crayon totes, messenger bags and mini clutches (an adorable mini version of her full size clutches) over on the Totes and Toggles facebook page. Stop by her page to see more pretty designs. Totes & Toggles does custom orders and has many fabric options to chose from so you can mix and match your favorite swatches. We are excited to have Maggie as a part of our handmade community!
It is no secret that we think today’s vendor spotlight is the bee’s knees. Tarisha’s (P&C designer) sweet bags have been hanging out over on our Featured Artist Page for a few weeks now. Yes the time will come when we update that page (after HMC3) but P&C’s feature is one of our favorites so far and we don’t mind them loitering a bit longer. CLICK HERE to learn how Tarish gets her creative process gong and what handmade items she cherishes the most and visit Polk & California at our upcoming Holiday event on December 3rd.
Helena Sophia is our splendid vendor spotlight today! Hooray for hand-dyed yarn, colorful cosmetic bags and fun kid accessories! Sarah Cupp is the lovely designer behind all things cute at HS. Handmade City first met Sarah through our April ’11 event and we’re glad we did. It is always nice to find people who’s work is made with love! You can check out the her Etsy shop here, or visit her on Facebook here! Stop by her booth at our Holiday 2011 event to pick up Christmas gifts your family will love!
Fun, fresh, flirty and fabulous… all come to mind when one thinks of the items available at Kara’s Collections.
