Stitch Witch is back for her second Royal Bison! She first joined us in in the November market and she's back to share her whimsical, witchy, and one-of-a-kind handmade patches with you! All pieces are lovingly hand-stitched by textile artist and coven leader, Shannon Fox. We are all super excited to see what she has in store this round! You can keep up with Shannon's progress on instagram (@foxshannon) and read on down below to see what makes Stich Witch tick.
RB: What draws you to making/designing things?
SW: I have lots of feelings and I love taking them from my brain and reimagining them into a tangible thing that I can share with other folks. It feels really magical when someone holds something I’ve made because it’s like holding a piece of my cute lil creative heart.
RB: What’s new for your line/business this spring?
SW: I have much wider selection of beaded patches and larger one-of-a-kind patches with new designs (including a beaded lemon and 10” vinyl patch!).
RB: What’s in your designer/maker/creative plans for 2018?
SW: I would like to work towards making a line of clothing (I also sew!) that incorporates my hand-stitched patch designs in a sartorial context.
RB: Tell us about a few of your designer/maker/creative crushes:
SW: Regina Spektor for delicate pop tunes and lyrics that emotionally gut. Maricor/Maricar for fun abstract embroidery inspiration. Epithumia Rose for captivating multidisciplinary art (and wicked tattoos)
