HER STORY

I have always had a great interest in the arts. After I first moved here, seven years ago, to study photography at Lesley University, I enrolled in the fibers program at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In the last few years, I've focused a lot on embroidery and have created all kinds of pieces — from baby gifts and small patches to banners for a local brewery. 

Inspiration struck for this concept only a short time ago, but sometimes when you get the right idea, you just have to jump on it.

WHY BOW?

When I first heard of Bow Market, I knew exactly what I wanted to do: create a place where makers and appreciators of the arts could shop for affordable supplies and share their work. By opening in a market setting, the arts community becomes more accessible and we create opportunities for people to learn from each other's expertise.

PAIRS WELL WITH:

9000 Things. Shop there first to get inspired and then pop over to Make & Mend for the supplies.
