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.
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.

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