Mary Kruger from Pear
Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
Pear will be displaying our new patchwork bathmats and coasters for the first time at the Handmade Market as well as some oldies but goodies like crossbody bags, headbands, and wallets. I’ve been really having fun combining fabrics with different patterns and textures into modern patchwork designs that provide the focal point to most of our items.
In you experience, what has been your best venue for selling your work:
I really enjoy well-organized (and attended) shows like the Handmade Market because it is a great opportunity to meet and get valuable feedback from shoppers. The benefits continue even after the show is over with help from increased web and wholesale opportunities.
Which artist at The Handmade Market are you excited to see/meet?
Shannon Newlin, I really want to see her lovely art in person.
