Kristena Witherspoon Designs (KWD) is a Chicago based fashion label inspired by the Diaspora, art, street fashion, and prints. The designs are limited edition and one of a kind pieces that are functional yet allow you to stand out from the crowd.
Brittney (MissHappyPink) has been making and creating her whole life. Once she picked up her first squeegee there was NO stopping her. She screen prints designs the old fashioned way onto paper or textiles. Old-fashioned meaning that each print is hand-pulled with two hands and a squeegee on a table top press. She creates art prints and greeting cards on paper as well as wearable art such as patches and t-shirts.
Gather is like the left-hand to our Bloomington Handmade Market. One cannot exist without the other. And so, we give them a special sponsor shout-out today for the support, inspiration, and consistency that we provide each other.
If you've never stepped foot inside Gather (it's ok, at least go to the Market) why not stop in the Saturday of the spring mini. You'll find nearly 300 makers in 1300 sq foot that represent all that BHM stands for. They're a home for BHM vendors past, present, and future, and will continue to grow and thrive as the Market does the same. Thank you.
Colorful and unique crocheted treasures are the focus of Part Time Hooker.
