Teaching takes up so much time and emotional energy, I really have to be intentional with the time I carve out for creating. The second biggest obstacle has been imposter syndrome. I know I'm not the only creative that has felt this way, questioning if your work is worthy, if you're good enough, if you're a "real" artist. I think it was especially tough for me when I chose to go to graduate school for education after completing my bachelors degree in art. Since I chose to pursue teaching for a long time I felt that also meant I chose not be a "real" artist. The best part is, you can be more than one thing, and it took me a while to realize I could be both.</span></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewNumberedItemContainer"> <div role="listitem" class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItem freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextTextItem" jsname="ibnC6b" jscontroller="rDGJeb" jsaction="sPvj8e:e4JwSe,Dlbleb;O22p3e:e4JwSe,F0zejc;" data-required="true" data-item-id="1831809829"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemHeader"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemTitleDescContainer"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemTitleContainer"> <h1 class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemTitle exportItemTitle freebirdCustomFont" dir="auto">What has been your biggest achievement so far?</h1> </div> </div> </div> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextTextItemContainer"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextLongText freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextDisabledText freebirdThemedInput"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">My biggest achievement has been launching my business.

If it lights a fire inside your soul, go after it, regardless of what other well meaning people in your life think. Invest in yourself and take risks; no one ever charted new paths by playing it safe. Even though it's 2019, I still hear women and girls say they have interest in pursing something but their parent/friend/significant other doesn't think it's something a girl/woman should do. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">F*ck that, do it anyway!

Friends and family don't always understand that business hours is a relative term, especially if your small business is a side hustle. For me, any hour in which something needs to be done is part of business hours. I'm really lucky to have great friends and family that are super supportive, but there really is always something that I could or should be doing for my business.</span></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewNumberedItemContainer"> <div role="listitem" class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItem freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextTextItem" jsname="ibnC6b" jscontroller="rDGJeb" jsaction="sPvj8e:e4JwSe,Dlbleb;O22p3e:e4JwSe,F0zejc;" data-item-id="975991815"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemHeader"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemTitleDescContainer"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemTitleContainer"> <h1 class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsItemItemTitle exportItemTitle freebirdCustomFont" dir="auto"><img class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x206_karissajpg.jpg" alt="" width="275" height="206" align="left" />How do you "treat yo self?'</h1> </div> </div> </div> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextItemWrapper freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextTextItemContainer"> <div class="freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextShortText freebirdFormviewerViewItemsTextDisabledText freebirdThemedInput" aria-describedby="c475"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Self care is my motto for this school year. Probably because I'm a teacher, but I make my new years resolutions at the end of August. This year's is all about self care. As a natural "helper", I tend to focus on the needs of others, so this year I'm being intentional about making time for myself.

We are back, after a bit of a hiatus, with a new Featured Female Maker. This week we are featuring Lilly Everett of Rake and Make. Lilly lives in Seattle with her husband, a dog, a cat, and a rotating cast of chickens. Rake and Make started out as a gardening blog but has grown to include all the things Lilly likes to make, whether it's gardening, cooking or craft related.</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Continue reading to learn more about Lilly and the beautiful garments she makes.</span></p> <h1><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><img class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x275_rakeandmake5jpg.jpg" alt="" width="275" height="275" align="left" />How did you get into garment making?</span></h1> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">My first sewing project was a duffel bag in home ec class in the 5th grade. I still have it and the stitching isn&rsquo;t half bad! When I was 18, I saved up and bought my first sewing machine (a Bernette). It wasn&rsquo;t the greatest sewing machine, but it worked for pegging pants, sewing patches on clothes, and mending things for friends. I always wanted to make clothes, but being young, transient, and in school got in the way at the time. In 2012, my husband bought me a new sewing machine (a Baby Lock Molly) and that&rsquo;s when my obsession with garment sewing began. I took some classes at the West Seattle Fabric Company. I took a pattern reading class which really demystified a lot of garment sewing for me.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I still have that machine, it only has 11 stitches but I made my wedding dress with it! <em>(check it out </em><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/vje6kbQBt-/" target="_blank">here</a><em>)</em>. Around the time the Collette Pattern Handbook came out I did some projects out of that. I also had the One Yard Wonders book and made some projects from that. 2012 was the same year I started a blog and started sharing what I was making. My blog was originally supposed to be a gardening blog, then it was a garment and crafting blog and now it's basically a sewing blog.</span><br /><br /></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Who has been your biggest mentor or role model?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">There hasn&rsquo;t been just one, I&rsquo;ve had so many. Monica Skov of West Seattle Fabric Company was a huge help when I first started. In 2015 I started attending Camp Workroom Social. I really loved learning at those classes and working with that group of women. I&rsquo;ve been really lucky to take classes with some amazing designers like Heather Lou of Closet Case Patterns, I took a bra class with Amy Chapman of Cloth Habit, and I made a jacket with Christine Haynes. I love Camp Workroom Social and I&rsquo;m excited to be going for my fifth year in the fall.</span></p> <h1><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><img class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x275_rakeandmake4jpg.jpg" alt="" width="275" height="275" align="right" />What has been your biggest achievement so far?</span></h1> <br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I keep one up-ing myself. I said I would never make jeans and then I made jeans, and that was a huge achievement. Then I made a bra, then I made a swimsuit. I just keep raising the bar for myself. I love that about sewing, there are always more skills to learn.</span><br /><br /> <h1><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Tell us something on your bucket list.</span></h1> <br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Teaching was on my bucket list and I'm just now starting to do that (<em>keep an eye out for classes with Lilly at Wyldwood!)</em> I've always wanted to write a book, either a gardening book or hardscaping book. My husband and I are building a greenhouse right now so it would be a book to teach that piece of gardening</span><br /><br /> <h1 id="yui_3_17_2_1_1572291448678_713"><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><img width="275" height="413" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x413_rakeandmake9jpg.jpg" class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" alt="" align="left" />How do you "treat yo self?&rdquo;</span></h1> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fabric, I'm completely obsessed. My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I told my husband to tell everyone I wanted gift cards for fabric stores. I recently went to Portland for their Frocktails event and I went crazy at the fabric stores there. The fabric store is my happy place.</span><br /><br /></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Where do you get inspiration?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Instagram. I'm a relentless pattern stalker, before I sew something I like to go look at everyone's versions. I love to fabric shop and touch and feel and see what I like.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />What advice do you have for someone who wants to try garment making?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Don't be intimidated by it at all. I like that people are impressed by things I sew but I always tell them it something they could do too. Just practice and don't expect the first thing you make to be perfect, enjoy the process and have fun making something.</span><br /><br /></p> <h3 id="yui_3_17_2_1_1572291448678_747"><img class="img-responsive" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x183_rakeandmake7jpg.jpg" alt="" width="275" height="183" align="middle" /><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We hope you enjoyed learning more about Lilly this week! Lilly is also in charge of the Seattle Frocktails event. Seattle Frocktails is a not-for-profit community event for sewists to get together, make new friends and admire each other&rsquo;s finest handmade outfits over delicious cocktails.

She lives on a 5 acre farm in rural Washington where she knits and sews project bags. Continue reading to learn more about Katherine and her business.<br /><br /></h3> <h2><img class="img-responsive" style="float: right;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x188_handmakersbag4jpg.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="188" align="" /><span style="font-size: 18pt;">How did you get into your craft or hobby?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The first time I ever sewed was in my Home Economics class when I was 16. I fell in love with it, but I didn't start sewing again until after my daughter was born. I was at the store one day and decided to buy a sewing machine, pattern, and fabric on a total whim. I taught myself, and made my daughter some pants out of some black quilters cotton with little rainbow cats. I was so proud of myself even though they were so horrible. I look back on it now and can't believe I made her wear those. I kept with it and kept teaching myself, when she started school I sewed her entire wardrobe for school. She soon found out that all of her friends got their clothes from the store so that was the end of that, but I kept sewing and making things.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In 2012 I met a group of ladies who got me into knitting. When I started knitting more I needed something to put my projects in so I started making bags to hold all of my projects. Everyone in my knitting group started asking for them so I started listing them on Etsy and they sold. Now it's 3 years later and I'm doing this full time.</span><br /><br /></p> <h2><img class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x188_handmakersbag2jpg.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="188" align="left" /><span style="font-size: 18pt;">How did you make the move to full time?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I was working an office job in a really hostile environment, The first year I loved it and enjoyed the work that I was doing, the second years things started to change and by the 3rd year I was started getting sick at work, I didn't know what kind of environment I was going to walk into when I got to work. Around July of 2017 I came home and told my husband that I just couldn't keep working there, it was awful to be there. I told him I wanted to quit and do my sewing full time. I was doing pretty well with my sales, i also felt like our life would be better if I was home more. I was a stay at home mom until my kids went to high school. We looked over our budget and figured out how to make it work. My last day working was October 31st of 2017. It was really scary to leave the steady pay check and take that leap of faith. But it's been going really well</span><br /><br /></p> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">What advice do you have for other female makers?</span><br /><br />&ldquo;Just go for it. Just do it.&rdquo;</h2> <span style="font-size: 12pt;">I'm not saying quit your day job and dive in head first. But if you have an idea and you're passionate about it, figure out how to make it happen. Don't be afraid to start and don't keep putting it off. I used to get up at 4 am so I could get up and sew a little bit before work. My friends thought I was crazy but it was the only way I could do it. I felt so drawn to doing it so I was willing to get up and do that. You just have to figure out how to make it work in your situation.</span> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The thing that has helped me a lot is really sticking to a routine. It's really easy when you work at home to just hang out in your PJs all day and just kind of passively work on things. You're the one who has to tell yourself what to get done and it's easy to tell yourself &ldquo;oh I'll do it tomorrow&rdquo; or &ldquo;I'll do it later.&rdquo; I get up and shower and get dressed and try to be in my studio by 11am. I also sit down at the end of every night and plan for the next day, I layout all my tasks, that way when I walk into my studio the next day I already know what I'm going to work on. I don't have to stop and make that decision.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">What has been your biggest achievement so far?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Being able to make the move to doing it full time. It's not an easy thing to run your own business. There's no one telling you what to do and if you don't get up and get to work you don't make any money. It's been really nice to be able to do it and make money doing it.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><img class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x188_handmakersbag3jpg.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="188" align="right" />Tell us something on your bucket list</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I really want to go to Scotland, to the Edinburgh yarn festival. My daughter and I were supposed to go this past March. We were making our plans to go and then she ended up getting pregnant and was due when we were supposed to go. So I got a granddaughter instead of a trip to Scotland. It's still on my list to go!</span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">What is the most frustrating thing about being a small business owner?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Having people not take me seriously. People don't necessarily get it, they don't think that you're actually working a real job. You get an idea that they think "oh she's just playing in her sewing room&rdquo;, or &ldquo;she's just making things for fun." When I tell people how much money I've made, they're surprised at how much money can be made making things and selling them online. People don't see all of the things that go on behind the scenes, tracking inventory, and photographing, and listing things on line. It's hard to get people to understand that what I'm doing in an actual real job.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Where do you get inspiration?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Usually from the fabric. There's a couple of online fabric stores that I love and I"ll just get on there and look around and see what jumps out at me. I also go to my local fabric store and just start pulling fabric off the shelf and she what ideas come to me. Sometimes I like a fabric so much that I'm afraid to cut into it. I went to a quilt show and found a fabric that I loved, it was yellow with little flowers on it and a border of tea cups. I held onto that fabric for a really long time and finally decided to make place mats for my kitchen. I cut into the fabric and then realized that it wasn't printed straight so the border was wonky on the place mat and I hated them. I ended up tossing them and was so disappointed.</span><br /><br /></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><img width="250" height="188" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x188_handmakersbag1jpg.jpg" class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" alt="" align="left" />You're on a deserted island, you get three items, what are they?</span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Chiaogoo circular knitting needles, a skein of Madeline Tosh merino light yarn, my little pugs to keep me company.</span></p> Featured Female Maker - Splendor and Stone http://www.wyldwoodcreative.comhttps://www.wyldwoodcreative.com/modules/news.htm?newsId=8868 <div data-pm-slice="1 1 []" style="text-align: center;"><strong><img class="img-responsive" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x250_44515949_380285806130721_4200067571233325056_njpg.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="250" align="" /><br /><span style="font-size: 18pt;">This week we are featuring Gretchen McAllister of </span></strong></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Splendor and Stone<br /><img width="275" height="186" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x186_splendorandstone3_20191028132854jpg.jpg" class="img-responsive" alt="" align="" /><br /></strong></span></div> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Gretchen is a warm and wonderful human who makes beautiful earrings at her home in Tacoma, WA. I met Gretchen at the first market I ever participated in. It wasn&rsquo;t a super busy one so we had a chance to talk a bit and get to know one another. She is absolutely lovely and I&rsquo;m so happy to have met her.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We recently met up for coffee in Tacoma and it felt like catching up with an old friend. We had so much fun chatting about making and what it&rsquo;s like being a maker here in the PNW.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Continuing reading to learn more about Gretchen and her jewelry making journey.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>To shop Gretchen&rsquo;s gorgeous pieces, visit her <a href="https://www.etsy.com/shop/SplendorandStone" target="_blank">Etsy store</a> here.</strong></span></p> <h3 style="text-align: left;"><br /><img class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x249_splendorandstone2jpg.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="249" align="left" /><strong><span style="font-size: 18pt;">How did you get into your craft or hobby?</span>&nbsp;</strong></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I've been making jewelry since I was 8 years old. I&rsquo;ve always done it a little bit. When my daughter was 9 months old we thought about moving out of Ballard, it took a little convincing but I got my husband to move to Tacoma. We fell in love with our rental house and our neighborhood, but I had no friends and didn't have a job. I&rsquo;m an outgoing person and found it hard to meet people organically. I had a lot of time on my hands and jewelry was something that appealed to me. Instagram was just sort of taking off so I started an account and had my friends follow me. I didn&rsquo;t really know what I was doing but Tacoma is an amazing space for makers. Everyone I met was super supportive. The first year I was in business I had very gradual growth and I was working as a nanny for another family. I got to a point where I was making the same amount of money with my jewelry as I was being a nanny. So I quit my job in 2017 and started doing the jewelry full time. I focused on doing a market a month and I&rsquo;ve just grown from there.</span></p> <h2 data-pm-slice="1 1 []"><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Who has been your biggest mentor or role model?</strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I've met so many awesome ladies through the Tacoma night market. Every maker I meet is inspiring in some way because they're following their passion.

My first memory as an entrepreneur was in elementary school when I made drawstring bags to sell to my friends. After that, I stopped sewing until I became an adult. In the mid-2000&rsquo;s my love for handbags inspired me to start sewing again. I made simple tote bags and sold a few bags to my friends. Then I opened my first Etsy shop, but it started to get overwhelming because I was juggling a full-time job, being a single mom raising two daughters and trying to make time to sew. I had to put my sewing on hold and was able to start again in 2015 with the support of my husband and my family. I have been refining my craft since then and in December 2018 I was able to quit my job as a paralegal and pursue my passion full time.</span><br /><br /></p> <h3 data-pm-slice="1 1 []"><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>What has been your biggest achievement so far?</strong></span></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">My biggest achievement is raising my two daughters and my stepson. They are good students, respectful and kind. They make me proud every day.</span></p> <h3><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>What advice do you have for other female makers?&nbsp;</strong></span></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Never give up!

There will be times when you feel overwhelmed and you want to give up but you can&rsquo;t give into that feeling.&nbsp;</span></p> <h3 data-pm-slice="1 1 []"><strong><br /><img class="img-responsive" style="float: right;" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/250x302_imrpov_totejpg.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="302" align="" /><span style="font-size: 18pt;">What is the most frustrating thing about your industry or line of work?</span></strong></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Having so many ideas and projects but never enough time to get to them all.</span></p> <h3><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>What is your favorite tool?</strong></span></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">My favorite tool is my heavy duty Gold Star press.

She would buy all different types of beads for us and we would push them around for hours together, coming up with different combinations and patterns. This is around the same time my obsession with gemstones started to blossom. I would search patches of gravel every day after school looking for crystals. At one point I even took a hammer to a neighbor's retaining wall because I spotted a few veins of quartz in the large boulders. I got in a lot of trouble for that one. While beading lost my interest in my teenage years I directed my attention to buying jewelry and had a ring on each finger throughout high school.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I started beading with my grandmother at a very young age. I used to make earrings for the other girls in the neighborhood. I lost interest in my teenage years and then picked back up in my mid twenties.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In my late twenties someone who was very important to me was diagnosed with late stage breast cancer. There were benefits being put together and I wanted to be able to donate. I bought a handful of beads and some copper wire and went to town making some of the ugliest rings, but that was the second wind. A few years later I was enrolling myself in metalsmithing classes and buying one of a kind gemstones left and right.</span></p> </div> </div> <div class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2" id="block-yui_3_17_2_1_1554500453354_42989"> <div class="sqs-block-content"> <h3><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong><img width="275" height="275" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9697/275x275_img_20180808_201140_098jpg.jpg" class="img-responsive" style="margin-right: 10px; margin-left: 10px;" alt="" align="right" />What has been your biggest achievement so far?</strong></span></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">So far it has been successfully working with the smallest bit of gold.

She runs the jewelry studio at Pratt in Seattle, and has been a huge support both as a friend and as an excellent manager of the metal department.</span></p> <h3><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>What advice do you have for other female makers?&nbsp;</strong></span></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">To collaborate and build a community together.

I need to charge enough to cover the cost of my materials plus tools and equipment, as well as pay myself an hourly wage and account for fees and taxes. This means that my pieces cost more than what can be picked up at a store that sells production work. Trying to navigate this can be daunting.</span></p> </div> </div> <div class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2" id="block-yui_3_17_2_1_1554500453354_44332"> <div class="sqs-block-content"> <h3><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>What is your favorite guilty pleasure?</strong></span></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Whiskey.</span></p> <h3><strong><br /><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><br /><br />How do you "treat yo self?'</span></strong></h3> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I just buy more rocks.
