What Else You Should Know About Them:

What kind of geeky goodness will you be bringing with you to the next Geekery Market?

I've been stitching away at new hooded scarves, hats both geeky and mundane, bags (including more of the very popular squid dice bags that got snatched up last year!), and a variety of fun stuffed toys and dolls. I've got Totoros and Pop Mushies (they make a great quiet fidget!), and so much more to come! Feel free to check out my Instagram for regular post updates with everything I'm working on!

What's an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?

I just love my small army of Totoros. It tickles me that each is a little different and seem to have their own personalities. I've also got this great Teemo hat which was just so fun to make, and will likely be sure to bring a couple different sized versions of that one!

What was the first item you ever made? How did you learn to make it?

The first item I ever made was a scarf for a certain wizarding-themed movie weekend. I looked up how to do a basic scarf and learned the stitches through online videos from other crochet artists. I've come a long way since then! I don't think I could make a scarf that weirdly crooked again if I tried!

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?

I *love* custom work! Whether it's just a specific set of colors on something I've made before, or requests for things I've never had the chance or reason to make in the past, these are truly what I have the most fun with. It's great to see what other people come up with and enjoy instead of only seeing things through my own mental lens!

If you could travel anywhere in space or time, real or imagined, where would you want to go?

I'm mostly happy here, really. But, if the opportunity arose... I think I'd love to experience traveling through space alongside Mal Reynolds and the rest of the crew of the Serenity.
