Kathryn – Wildflower Wool Goods
What do you make / sell? Tell us about yo’ self.
I am making and selling knitwear that is cute enough for city living but cozy enough for adventuring in the mountains!
How long have you had your business?
How did you get started?
I always go to Market Collective and was jealous of other people selling their stuff. I’ve always wished I had a creative pursuit so when I ran out of things to knit for myself I decided I would try my hand at selling!
Who or what inspires your work?
I make things I like or things for people I love. My boyfriend inspired my only current unisex pattern and I knit a pair of string mitts at a friend’s request because she loses hers.
What do you dream for your business in the future?
I dream that I will sell enough to keep going and that I will get to meet more makers. Knit nights have been so fun I can’t wait util I can start markets and make market friends!
What’s your favourite social media platform and why?
Instagram! I’ve been on Instagram practically since day one because I love taking photos. I used to take my point and shoot camera everywhere I went (including the bar) before phone cameras became decent in order to take pictures of my friends and our adventures. Its really cool how it has morphed into a place to grow a community.
How do you pick yourself up when things go wrong?
I talk to my loved ones and they help to hold me up and push me forward. A good cry always helps the world seem a little brighter.
What’s one thing no one knows about you? Give us an interesting fact!
I worked at Walt Disney World for two summers during university!
If you could have any super power what would it be?
Mindreading. But only if I could turn it on when I wanted to.
