Hi there! My name is Violet Craft. Seriously. That's my name. I'm a pretty normal girl living in Portlandia. I'm a wifey, a momma, a MAKE-er. I sew and cause trouble with the Sweet Hot Yams and I'm a member of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild.
What have I been up to professionally for the past couple of decades? I am a licensed textile designer for Michael Miller Fabrics and I have my own line of sewing patterns.
I founded and ran an internationally sold children's clothing line, KungFuBambini for several years which brought me to designing fabric and sewing patterns. It was a labor of love, for sure!
Prior to that you could find me under the fluorescent lights of various software companies, on a bar floor (I mean in class of course!), or running the front end of a grocery store. Or opening personal bank accounts, or installing software in sheriff's offices, or tending that bar, or arranging flowers, or painting houses... oh hell, what haven't I done for a living, really?
For those curious: I earned a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Computer Information Systems with an emphasis in Finance from Fort Hays State University in Hays, KS. Go Tigers!
