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.

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!
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?
Owl and Mouse Textile Designs is a small printing company based in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. We focus on hand-dyed and printed accessories for women, men, baby and home.

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.
