Muggles Market Spotlight: Lily Pad Crafts

Welcome to another Muggles Market Spotlight for 2017! Today, we are delighted to announce the return of Lily Pad Crafts to our second annual Muggles’ Market at this year’s Geek Gala. Rona Herman took a few minutes to answer some questions about their business and general geekery.

  • What was one of your favorite parts of last year’s Muggles Market? 
    I had a lot of fun last year at the Muggles Market getting to meet so many wonderful and colorful people, both customers and fellow vendors. The conversations were spectacular. Of course, getting to see people happy with their purchases was an added bonus. I also loved seeing all the variety of handmade items the other vendors were selling. Such creative people!
  • What types of items do you plan to bring this year?
    This year I plan on bringing back more wedge pillows of all sizes (little for cell phones, large for tablets and jumbo for people). I have them in a whole new set of fabrics including some original Jetsons and Scooby Doo!
  • Are you bringing any new kinds of things that we might not have seen last year?
    New this year I’ll be bringing a bunch of fun ‘geeky’ patches and ‘mug rugs’.
  • What else can you tell us about yourself?
    Outside of my quilting/crafting business, I am also the Education Coordinator and quilting teacher at JoAnn Fabric here in Charlotte. This is a fairly new position for me, but I’m loving every minute of it! Getting to share my knowledge with others has been incredibly rewarding.
  • So this year’s Geek Gala pays homage to Godzilla movies – if you were to create a Godzilla movie today – what type of nemesis do you think he should fight against?
    Voltron. Take it old school. But, it would definitely have to be a live action/CGI extravaganza.
  • And make plans to come visit them on Saturday, October 21st at this year’s Geek Gala!
