|Elizabeth and Krista|
First of all they are best friends. Krista said they met at an ECFE class when their kids were all just 12 months old. They bonded because they lived on the same street, both had family in Vermont, and because their kids loved each other. When the kids were about three years old, Krista started knitting and Elizabeth started sewing and somehow they passed their hobbies on to each other. They were both recruited by Melissa, to sell their work at The Linden Tree. I always look forward to running into them there.
Krista likes sewing zipper pouches, bibs, cocktail napkins and makes eye pillows filled with flax and lavender seeds. She loves to learn new things and is always happy to find a clever technique or new approach to something. Elizabeth likes making small projects like the key fobs and pony tail holders for the instant gratification but finds quilts enjoyable because of the endless possibilities and sense of accomplishment.
They both know a lot about fabric and were very helpful to me while designing Poppy Hop. They liked seeing my whole process from sketch to final printed fabric with Modern Yardage. Please stop in the Linden Tree if you live in the Twin Cities area to purchase their work, or you can find their shops on Etsy. Click here for Tiny Crumb and here for Egads and Little Fishes.
