Jessika Cates of Collective Individual

My name is Jessika Cates, and I am a midwesterner who loves to explore and combine different materials and craft processes, and share these explorations with everyone. Ever since I was little I have tried making money by selling things that I love. For example, it was very common for me to have a bracelet stand instead of a lemonade stand. This love for getting my work out into the world gave way to my etsy shop, Collective Individual. Many pieces I make are one of a kind, and not made in bulk. So When you see my work for sale, keep in mind that each piece is unique and as individual as you. I feel that by making and sharing these creations, I am able to allow customers, friends, and family members into my own little world of creativity.

Emily Blodgett-Pano

Hello! Nice to meet you! (*shakes hands*) My name is emily and I make jewelry. I started taking classes when I was 15, went to University of Kansas in Metalsmithing, started emetalworks and have been making ever since! 

My jewelry is completely handmade, usually in patinated sterling silver, brass or steel with a variety of other materials (wood, enamel, stones, yarn, felt, paper, found objects etc).

Robin Mackintosh of Weird Buttons

Handmade porcelain or black stoneware sgraffito carved buttons. There has been such a resurgence in the fiber arts that I feel there is a need for beautiful buttons. Why spend all that time knitting or weaving or sewing a lovely garment, only to finish it with an average button?

Kim Eichler-Messmer of KimE-M Quilts

I make quilts, and useful quilted items, featuring hand-dyed fabric from my own custom dye recipes. They are 100% cotton, heirloom quality, soft and warm enough for the bed, beautiful enough to hang on a wall.

My “Happy Place” - dreaming about colors. I could spend and have spent hours in front of color charts and paint store color sample displays. I love to weave and dye my own yarns! As a child, I had a “compulsion” to create, using a variety of mediums from paper collages to light sculptures. I later attended the Kansas City Art Institute where I studied fiber arts. I continue to be creative while staying home with my two lovely daughters. Making handwoven panels, scarves and shawls with hand-dyed yarn keeps me happy, healthy and challenged.
