Where are you from and what brought you to the Minneapolis area? I’ve always lived here, and in all my travels I’ve never seen a place I like better 🙂

How in the heck did you get into screen printing? It’s part of my journey into making clothes. I’ve been sewing since I was 8, after I read little house on the prairie I sat down and taught myself. And I’ve been picking up techniques and making stuff for myself and friends ever since. One night I got a phone call that my friends band booked a show with a national act and could I print them a line of merchandise by tomorrow? I was game, I recruited another friend who had done it before, got their screen, basic supplies, and we printed late into the night on anything I had that would hold ink. I’ve been fascinated ever since.
