There’s a lot that I respect about people who can sew. First, they can fix, alter, hem or update a lot of their own clothes which is super cool. Second, they can create new designs and pieces that no one else has, which is also super cool. Last, they are carrying with them an art form that for me, feels like it is slipping away from mainstream society. I mean, how many people do you know you can actually sew and design?
Today, I caught up with Laura Fader from Copper Paw Designs. I met her in 2017 and she participated in our Christmas Fair selling her hand made harnesses and bandannas for pets. If you know me, you’ll know that I LOVE my dogs and that I have never been shy about dressing them up or giving them fun accessories. (My Pomeranian Gianni I think is actually more obsessed with clothes than I am!) Laura will be showing and selling again at our main event and for you pet lovers out there, this is a great opportunity to either find something for your pet from a pet fashionista or even ask for a commission for your furry friend!
