Knock Knock, who’s there?

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

About a thousand years ago (okay, 1987-1989…so not *quite* a thousand, but getting close) I studied for a Visual Arts degree.  I didn’t complete it, but I’ve always been very good at art, and quite a dab hand at crafting.  I’ve been crocheting since I was 10, and knitting about the same length of time – in the past 2 years I’ve taken up crafting a lot more seriously because my husband was out of work, and I needed to make a bit of “pin money” .

My shop name, “Hats Outrageous!” came about because I needed a name at the Summer Fair put on by my kids’ primary school last year.  I already had a reputation for selling hats, and so I made a play on the words “That’s Outrageous!”.  I’m a bit bored with it, particularly as I don’t only make hats, but I guess once the cooler weather starts approaching I’ll feel a bit more comfortable about the name!

Are you a full time craftsperson or do you have other jobs too?

I’m a full-time wife and mother – while my husband was out of work I looked for office jobs, but art is my first love, and I decided if I was going to earn some money it would be on my own terms, not working “for the man”,  so to speak.  I *do* work one hour a week typing and proofreading for a man in the next suburb who’s writing a book; it doesn’t pay much but again, it’s on my terms, and it fits in well around the kids.  I also taught crochet last half term to a group of lovely ladies – not quite sure how much they retained, but we had a lot of fun – I was going to do it again this half-term but I’ve not got around to it yet – I’ll probably give it another go after the May half-term hols.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

Hmmm… ”If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits?”

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid?

I’m an Australian ex-pat, so a lot of the shows which were my faves as a child won’t be familiar to UK readers, but the one which holds the most  long-lasting memories for me would have to be Doctor Who.  I was haunted for about 30 years by a nightmare of shop dummies which could move around and shoot people – it never occurred to me that it was a Doctor Who memory until one day I bought a copy of “Spearhead from Space” – I must have been ooh, I don’t know, 4 or 5 when I saw that!  Proof that television can be bad for you…ha ha!

How do you promote yourself?

I feel like I’m everywhere!  I have a fanpage on Facebook (although they’re not strictly “fan” pages anymore, are they!):

I have a Flickr photostream  –  I’m on Twitter –  I have a blog –  And of course, I’m on Folksy –  plus my second shop on Folksy for destashing – it’s only new, so not so full yet

…Oh – could I mention here too, I’m raising money to send my daughter to the World Scouting Jamboree in Sweden next year – all money I make from selling my things goes to her fund – she has a Facebook fan page. 🙂

I’m also a member of UK Handmade, which is a lovely site.

What couldn’t you do without?

Easy – my husband and 4 kids… although sometimes (for instance, a wet Sunday morning…) could do with a little more “me” time!

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place?

I’m not sure I have any one favourite place – I like castles and gardens and ooh, Britain!  I’m not sure if it’s just because I’m originally from the other side of the world, and although I’ve been here 5 years I’m still not quite over my “awestruckedness”, but I think that Britain must certainly be the most wonderful place on earth.

Apart from Rome…

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Just go for it, and if it doesn’t work, try again!  Nobody’s the same as everyone else.  The second best piece of advice?  Only clean the windows you look out of.

What question would you like to ask to yourself? And then answer it if you can!

Q. What will you be doing in 10 years time? A. Crafting and selling full time, from a converted outbuilding studio, somewhere in the Kent countryside, surrounded by my family.

Knock Knock – who’s there?

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

I have always been creating something, starting with the Barbie clothes, dressing up my dog…. I have been also drawing and painting a lot since I was a little girl. I have then studied fashion design (equivalent to british A levels). After that I realise that this is my passion – making things, sewing, crocheting, drawing, painting……..

My shop name comes from my first name, my surname’s initial and the word designs, which describes exactly what it is I think – my designs 🙂

Are you a full time craftsperson or do you have other jobs too?

I am a full time mum and trying to get this craft business going and hopefully it will become my full time job.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be? Positively crazy 🙂

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid? Friends and I loved all of the Disney cartoons

If you were to be invited to a celebrity’s house for dinner who would it be and what gift would you take them from your shop?

What an exciting question! Hmm – The Queen and I would probably take this green crochet bejewelled brooch

How do you promote yourself?

FacebookTwitterBlogFlickrFOLKSYETSYUK HANDMADE

If you were stuck on a desert island and were allowed to take one new crafting project with you based on something you admire in another shop, what would it be?

I would take everything from the polka shop – absolutely adore the shop

What couldn’t you do without?

Scissors and crochet hook – I could not do any of my stuff without them

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place? My mind, my dreams

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Patience young lady, patience

What question would you like to ask to yourself? And then answer it if you can! Q: Why are you so impatient? A: I blame the genes

Knock Knock, who’s there?

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

It may not be a total surprise to many, but I have no crafting background (apart from my Mum working in a bona fide wool shop in the 60s, 70s, and 80s and she taught me how to knit and crochet etc). In fact, I am actually trained as a Lab Technician and have an HNC in Chemistry. My dalliance with crafting arose from a need (I had no calling alas! No dream, no yearning to create etc). As a company, we needed to find something that would provide us with a background income when the main part of the company was going though a rocky time.

Glowdrop

The company creates prototypes, so when times are hard, companies cut back on development, so we get hit.  One of my colleagues mentioned that his son wouldn’t sleep at night because he was afraid of the dark. He wouldn’t sleep without a night light, or a hall way light on. Thus my colleague couldn’t get a proper night’s sleep either. Thus the Glowbile was created. Glowbile is what it says. A Glow-In-The-Dark hanging mobile. It stays bright for 8 hours and doesn’t disappear after 20 mins like the stickers that you put on the wall. We used my chemical knowledge with my co-workers model-making ability to obtain the solution to our dilemma. but now we are all adept at making the Glowbiles.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
I’d like to think that someone would actually find me interesting enough to write my biography, but I fear it would be a very thin pamphlet. That said, I would like the title to be something glitzy and sexy. Not dull like “Jamie! A life less ordinary”. How about “A Light in the Dark”, something that makes me sound interesting at least.

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid?

This will make me sound very geeky, but I just enjoyed it, and have never gone to conventions, remembered the episodes, learned Klingon or anything else that sad people do. It was Star Trek with Capt Kirk. However, I also liked The Persuaders (Tony Curtis and Roger Moore) and Pogles Wood. Make of that what you will.

Glowbile

If you were to be invited to a celebrity’s house for dinner who would it be and what gift(s) would you take them from your shop?

Assuming that the celebrity would have to be alive (my dead one would be Einstein or Newton), I would imagine that Jack Nicholson would be a good person to visit. He could certainly spin a yarn and tell of a few High Jinks. I would take him along a Glowbile, obviously finding out his birthday first. I think that its night time glow would appeal to him. I get the feeling that I wouldn’t do much of the talking!

How do you promote yourself?

My promotion is done on Folksy and will be on Twitter when I get enough followers. I’ve also gone onto other forums and chat and mention our website and go to Craft fairs, baby fairs and, basically, any way of getting the message across. Our big problem is letting as many people as possible know that we exist, and somehow trying to let the world know how we are different to the stickers that you buy and put on your wall; the ones that vanish after 1/4 of an hour.

If you were stuck on a desert island & were allowed to take one new crafting project with you based on something you admire in another shop, what would it be?

Assuming that I had to take another craft project and wasn’t allowed to take music, books etc, I would love to have a go at making NiftyKnits Meerkat  . Not only has she always been very kind to me, but as I was taught to knit as a youngster, I feel that I may have a shot at eventually doing it. Assuming that I was going to be stuck for many years, it would give me a while to make a few failures first.

What couldn’t you do without? Assuming that I’m not allowed to include my wife in the “couldn’t do without” section and let’s face it, that is sappy, I will include your next question in with this one…

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place?

It would be impossible to go to Cheltenham during the festival without a copy of the Racing Post. If you love either Horse-racing (which I do) or being in places with an unbelievable atmosphere, then Cheltenham at the big national hunt festival in March is unmatched. There’s nothing like losing your money with thousands of others to bring everyone into one big family of losers. And to harbour the illusion that “today is the day”, you have your Racing Post which will give you that edge (yeah right)!

Stencil Kit

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
The best bit of advice would almost certainly be something that I ignored, but the best that I remember is along the lines of “know what you don’t know”.

What question would you like to ask to yourself? And then answer it if you can!

As for the question I would ask myself, along with many others, that would have to be “Why do you bother”, and the answer would have to be because not bothering is not an option. The moment you decide not to bother, the darkness will swallow you up.

*************************************************************

THANK YOU Jamie from Glowbiles for taking part in The Sock Garden Q&A – it’s been an interesting read.  And to everyone else, if you know someone who’s afraid of the dark at bedtime, a visit to Glowbiles might be the answer!

Knock Knock, who’s there?

wax melts

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

I started crafting at my grandparents house when I was little making all kinds of weird and wonderful things – I like to think I’ve evolved since then! When I was a teen my Nan bought me a candle making kit and I haven’t looked back since. The shop name is simple because I’d like to grow my business and end up with a one stop pamper shop.

Are you a full time craftsperson or do you have other jobs too? I’m a full time mum of 5 and pretty much full time craftsperson – the children help!

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid? Rainbow! I loved zippy, I think he was my role model.

How do you promote yourself? I’m a regular on the Folksy forums, I also promote on Facebook and you can follow me on Twitter

If you were stuck on a desert island and were allowed to take one new crafting project with you based on something you admire in another shop, what would it be?

I’d love to learn to sew, I seem to have absolutely no talent in that area! So I’ll have to rely on shops like the incredibly talented Seamingly Possible for things like these gorgeous baby shoes.

Rich Italian

What can’t you do without? Coffee! The day doesn’t begin till I’ve have had at least one cup!

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place?

Warwick, The place I fell in love with my partner. It’s an absolutely stunning place and I’ll never forget the view from the top of the castle. Or the feeling of being with the love of my life at what felt like the top of the world.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Well it’s not exactly advice, But I do try and live by a James Dean quote – “Live as if you’ll die today and dream as if you’ll live forever.” It works for me!

Marshmallow Fluff

Gingerbread

Fresh & Natural

Maryann, thank you for taking part in The Sock Garden Q&A. It’s been fun learning a bit more about you and your craft.

I can recommend the gorgeous Gingerbread – smells just like there’s a ginger cake in the oven & lasts for ages. I can’t wait to receive my new Fresh & Natural votives next week. Go on, nip over to the Onestoppampershop and indulge yourself – you know you want to!

Knock Knock, who’s there?

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

I’ve always been creative, since I was a weird little kid who sat in the corner drawing and writing, and made a book about my baby brother being born. I’ve always been a collector and a hoarder – convinced that things will come in useful one day. My first collage in the style I tend to work with now was created whilst I was studying fine art in Chester, inspired by Joseph Cornell. I’ve always had conflicting interests in the sickly sweet and the sinister (there can be such a fine line between the two), and this is what I often depict in my art.

My shop name was the result of various online aliases. Friends used to say I looked like the character Emily Strange – so ‘Emma Strange’. I then went through all the various sayings that involve my surname –Lord (see Q3!), and eventually settled on strangelord. And I am pretty strange some would say, so it’s quite befitting.

Are you a full time craftsperson or do you have other jobs too?

I have worked full time in arts previously – as an artist in residence at a comprehensive school with visual arts specialist status. This ignited in me an already glimmering interest in working with young people. I now work full time as a young people’s Information, Advice and Guidance Worker, and my art/creativity remains a means of expression and a coping mechanism for life’s stresses. When working with young people these can be manifold I tell you!

If someone wrote a biography about you, what would the title be?

I like plays on my surname – there’s a lot! So maybe Good Lord!, Oh Lordy!, Lording it up… I get sick of people asking me to buy them a Mercedes Benz!

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid?

Willo the Wisp! I used to go to my Grandma Dalton’s every day when my mum was at work, and I’d pretend I was Mavis the Fat Fairy. Grandma would be the Twit or Evil Edna. When I was a little older my brother and I used to love Bitsa, especially the end bit where they’d get all the random stuff from the numbered boxes and make something out of it. Very Dada! That’s kind of what I do with my art now.

If you were to be invited to a celebrity’s house for dinner who would it be and what gift(s) would you take them from your shop?

My dream is to meet the Queen. I don’t know what she’d make of my work. I’d give her my kitsch and colourful collage ‘Fed Up’, because I bet she gets fed up of all her regal duties. And I’m sure the happy stars would bring a smile to her face.

Just as divalicious, but more the queen of grunge, Courtney Love is my idol. That woman has been through a lot! I’m not sure I’d get tea or cucumber sandwiches round her gaff, but ‘…and all the stars were just like little fish’ is named after a line from her grunge pop anthem ‘Violet’, so I’m sure she’d appreciate the homage, and my use of a picture from a child’s colouring book would probably appeal to her interests in naive imagery, just waiting to be corrupted.

How do you promote yourself?

Not well enough! These things take time, which I never have quite enough of.

I have my Folksy shop…   I tweet…   And I blog when I can…

As well as my minor online presence (!) I like to get involved in art shows and exhibitions. For me it’s so exciting to see my work displayed publicly for people to see. I’ve exhibited at the Great Sheffield Art Show, Holmfirth Art Week, and more recently in a small privately owned gallery in my home town of Doncaster.

If you were stuck on a desert island and were allowed to take one new crafting project with you based on something you admire in another shop, what would it be?

I LOVE sketch books. The way all my ideas are kept privately until someone ventures to open the pages. With a pretty sketch book and a handful of pencils I could doodle and drivel to my little hearts content. Maybe I could work out how to make adhesive from coconuts or something so I could collage in some shells or palm leaves.

Niche Handmade has some gorgeous note books and journals that would be just the ticket, especially the Alice ones. I’ve always felt an affinity with her. The strange company she keeps, and the constant curiosity…

What couldn’t you do without?

My cats. I do have a favourite but I won’t say in case they get upset. And strong glue.

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place?

Bed is a rather nice place isn’t it? Not really what I’d call inspirational though.

I’m inspired by literally everything –seeing a particular colour combination, finding an image on a flyer or in a magazine, idly browsing the haberdashery stalls at Doncaster market, or the delights displayed in the various charity shops.

I’m also inspired by seeing other artists’ work. ‘Peter Blake: About Collage’ at Tate Liverpool in 2000 and ‘Surrealism: Desire Unbound’ at Tate Modern (2001/02) made the most lasting impact.

And then there’s Paris…everyone must visit Paris at least once in their life –the Manets in Musée D’Orsay, the Catacombs (abandon hope all ye who enter…), the dead celebrities in Père-Lachaise, the department stores, the doll museum at Montmatre… magical! I made a box collage for my partner to commemorate the best holiday ever, which we spent in Paris together.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

In relation to art? Or in general? My mum often says there are no right or wrong decisions, just different paths we can follow and deal with the consequences as we go along. I suppose that can be applied to my life and my work equally. I often agonise over things way too much.

What question would you like to ask to yourself? And then answer it if you can!

If I were to sit, or stand still for long enough (which happens NEVER! It allows too much time for thinking…), would I be tempted to collage myself with beads, or buttons, or trinkets?

The answer is quite possibly yes. And it’d make for a smashing self portrait I reckon!

************************************************

THANK YOU EMMA for taking time out to share some of your inspirations and fabulous collage pieces with us. I love the self portrait idea, that would look spectacular!

Emma has lots of original pieces of artwork to browse through in her Folksy shop Stangelord – give yourself a treat and pop over there!

Knock, Knock – Who’s there? PLUS a Giveaway!

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

I came into craft via the fine art route. I studied art but had a very high-brow view of it – oil paintings and marble or bronze sculptures. The idea of suffering for my art didn’t appeal though and as real-life crept into the equation I found myself doing less and less. Although I painted on and off for 15 years I never really took it very seriously. Then I realised that someone might not be willing to pay the price of a one-off piece but that if I could make multiple copies then I could charge an affordable price for them. As soon as I discovered resin I was off!

Gelert by Charles Burton Barber (1845-1894)

The name Gelert Design comes from the little village of Beddgelert in Snowdonia. A beautifully inspirational place that I used to visit most weekends as a child. Gelert was the faithful dog of Prince Llywelyn in Welsh mythology. He stayed at home guarding his master’s infant son while Llywelyn went out hunting one day. When the prince returned, the place was wrecked – overturned furniture and blood all over the place. Gelert came bounding over to greet his master, his face all bloody. Llywelyn, assuming the dog had killed his son, ran Gelert through with his sword. The hound’s yelp was answered by a child’s cry. Llywelyn searched and found his son alive and well. But next to the boy was the body of a giant wolf. Llywelyn, realising his mistake and overcome with grief, buried Gelert and is said never to have smiled again. Beddgelert means Gelert’s Grave in English. This story really affected me as a child – shame it’s not true!

Are you a full time craftsperson or do you have other jobs too?

I had to quit work last summer due to health reasons. I’m not well enough to work full-time these days so I’m giving full-time craft work a go. It’s not as stressful as working for an employer and the hours I work are my own to choose. I think that with enough wholesale orders it’s feasible to make a living.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what would the title be?

Barely Bohemian – Diary of a Bedsit Philosopher. Actually, this comes from my late teen art school days. Sitting in a bedsit writing awful poetry.

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid?

Ooooh that’s easy! Bagpuss of course! I also remember being an avid viewer of the animated Wind in the Willows series and the cartoon Ulysses 31 as well as Take Hart. Although I also used to “make” my own tv shows – illustrating The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit – it was all animated in my head!

If you were to be invited to a celebrity’s house for dinner, who would it be and what gift would you take them from your shop?

It would be a toss-up between Stephen Fry and Brian, the dog in Family Guy! I think both would be fascinating conversationalists! As a gift, it would have to be the female bust. It’s my favourite item and probably the only thing classy enough for these guys.

The bust looks really alien to me! I look at the version on my wall sometimes and can hardly believe I made it! The metallic finish in juxtaposition to the softness of the female form. I have so many ideas as to where I’d like to take this style of work, but unless I find a market for the pieces they may have to remain unrealised as it’s expensive to produce.

I’m sure Stephen Fry would appreciate it.

How do you promote yourself?

Just the Folksy forums really. I always list new items on Twitter and CraftJuice, but they hardly generated any views. I have a link to my shop in the signature of my email address and on any forums I post on. That’s about it really. It’s early days for me and I don’t have the energy to promote properly and I’m not interesting enough to have a blog, so I’m thinking about places I could supply wholesale. That would suit me even though the income’s not as good as direct selling.

Someday I’ll have a website of my own, but I really just don’t have the time or the energy to put one together. It’s taken me two weeks to finish this interview after all!

If you were stuck on a desert island and were allowed to take one new crafting project with you based on something you admire in another shop, what would it be?

Woodworking would probably be a useful skill so that I could build a shelter or a raft! However, the crafting project I’d really like to try is stained glass. Amyorangejuice’s landscape panels are elegantly simple and really calming. I’d like to have a go at something like that on my desert island. The expanse of sand, sea, and sky would be quite a simple beginners project.

What couldn’t you do without?

Pub quizzes, being Welsh, sweet tea, cigarettes (unfortunately), and the support of my wonderful partner Eva. I sometimes think she believes in me more than I do! She probably sells most of my stuff offline too because she’s a good talker. Oh my can she talk!

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place?

The drive from Porthmadoc through Beddgelert and then up the Llanberis Pass to Dolbadarn Castle does it for me. You start off with a stunning view of Cnicht, a mountain with a PROPER mountain shape, then drive slowly uphill with woody cliffs on your left. To the right is a drop into the Glaslyn river valley with the mountains of Snowdonia behind.

Just before you reach Beddgelert there’s the little bridge at Aberglaslyn which is just fabulous! The foaming river cutting through the rocks. It’s a scene that makes me think I must be in Switzerland or someplace. When you finally arrive at Pen-Y-Pass and start the descent into the village of Llanberis along the Llanberis Pass, you start believing in dragons! The roadside is littered with giant boulders. The mist covers the crags on both sides. It’s a little bit eerie and you feel so very small and insignificant there. It’s easy to slip into history and mythology there I can tell you!

Finally you see the ruined tower of Dolbadarn Castle before you. It’s so small and simple compared to the impressive castles of Edward I in North Wales, and it’s location couldn’t be finer.

Cnicht

Dolbadarn

I’m obviously inspired by this route as I’ve painted Cnicht and I’ve painted Dolbadarn many many times.  Turner painted Dolbadarn too, so I’m not the only one to find inspiration there.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? That I should do something with my ability. Apparently I have a talent and I should use it.

What question would you like to ask yourself? And then answer if you can! No idea really. Sorry! I’ve asked myself pretty much everything, and as anyone will tell you, I’ve got an answer for everything 🙂

Knock Knock, who’s there?

What’s your craft background & how did you choose your shop name?

I’ve always loved doing craft, any type – from silk painting to teddy bear making to cross stitch, but one day I discovered beads and fell in love with them and the endless possibilities of working with them.  As for my shop name, Flutterbies, it was actually my sister who came up with that as a take on Butterflies, largely because they’re pretty!

Are you a full time craftsperson or do you have other jobs too?

Wouldn’t I love to be a full time crafter!  But Monday to Friday you can find me in a research lab playing about with chemicals

What was your favourite TV programme as a kid?

I’m having real trouble with this one!  I remember watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my older brothers, and Wizardora and Playdays with my little sister, but can’t remember what I watched!

If you were to be invited to a celebrity’s house for dinner who would it be and what gift(s) would you take them from your shop?

I would love to meet Jennifer Ehle who played Elizabeth Bennett in the 1995 Pride and Prejudice, one of my favourite books, and find out if she’s anything like her character!  I think I would have to take this wintery necklace as it’s a fairly simple but striking design, and this small charm purse because they’re quite unusual – one of a kind like Miss Bennet!

If you were stuck on a desert island and were allowed to take one new crafting project with you based on something you admire in another shop, what would it be?

I’ve always wanted to work with wood but never got round to it, so if I was to have a go at something new I would take inspiration from Boxio, particularly from this lovely flowing jewellery box.

What’s your favourite or most inspirational place?

My favourite favourite place is sitting by the sea at night, I love the sense of power of the ocean and the feeling of insignificance you get sitting there.

What couldn’t you do without? Books: when I’m not crafting I probably have my head stuck in a book!

How do you promote yourself?

I have a blog, I’m on facebook and Twitter, I get everywhere!  My blog is fairly new, but something I’m really enjoying doing.

THANK YOU Katherine for taking part in The Sock Garden Q&A and letting us in on a few of your inspirations.  Now here’s a small selection of some of the lovely pieces of Katherine’s handmade jewellery available at Flutterbies
