Tell us a little bit about yourself. (your family, your interests, etc;)
I am a thinker, maker, creator. As a wife, mother of three school age kids who is running two business and managing an active household, my time is pretty occupied! I do love to run and take spin classes. Staying active for me helps quiet the business in my life. Growing up on a farm in Iowa gave me the opportunity to explore outside, create and operate large pieces of machinery. I believe that gave me the confidence to try new things and create my business.
Please tell us about the beginnings of your business, and how you've come to be where you are now?
I also own Olive & Fern, a flower girl dress business (as seen in Martha Stewart Weddings). I have made dresses for almost 10 years. So starting Gypsy Bandanas was easier already knowing the business end of things. Gypsy bandanas was created to add another layer to my sewing life, It allows me to be more creative and free with the fabrics I choose. I love making items that are for everyday living too. Seeing my items worn by young and old is really something!
It has been so fun designing new items for Gypsy Bandanas! I have some new snap scarves in the works, and my favorite items are my fabric wrist cuffs with running inspirational quotes. I am excited to travel this summer and set up at Markets and sell in person.
My family always comes first, when things get busy at home or work we rally together and help each other out. This is a family business, we help each other, from sitting with me at Festivals and Markets, tagging items or picking the right fabrics! Its great to have it all woven together!
