Today, we bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Woolen Moss Farm and Studio. In Kate's words:
"My Etsy shop is dedicated to quality handmade clothing made from all natural, low impact dyed, and organic materials. Every body is beautiful and unique and should move freely and with ease. My hope is that my custom made clothing can help bring that to you.
Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join my new mailing list for occasional shop updates, sales, and events. I promise, your information will be kept only for me and you can remove yourself from the list at any time."
SouleMama: Tell us about the beginnings of your business.
Kate: When I first began Woolen Moss, I was making coasters, pillows, skirts, and handbags. Originally, I had thought I needed to decide exactly what I was going to do before I got started, but at that rate I was never going to get anywhere. I didn’t really discover what I wanted to focus on until after things were under way. And it turned out that I loved making clothing for others, but I had no idea that that was true until my first few customers responded so well. I love making things that fit others so well, and discovering that about myself has made my product better and better as time goes by. I am grateful for my learning curve and for my loyal customers that have helped me to grow over the years.
SouleMama: Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?
Kate: “Let yourself be drawn by the strange pull of what you love, it will not lead you astray.” ~Rumi
SouleMama: If you could spend a day with any crafter/artist who would it be and why?
Kate: Right now I love to peruse the work of India Flint. She makes clothing and she makes beautiful art, so she really pulls together my sculptural past with my clothing making present, and she makes me wonder what the future of my work will be. I wouldn’t mind having a chat with her over some tea some day, to discuss her evolution, and to think about my own.
SouleMama: What advice do you have for people wanting to be more creative?
Kate: Don’t wait for the right moment. It’s never the right moment. The right moment is like a soul mate, it doesn’t find you, you create it. I made a millions things with a million people before making clothing opened up to me. And it really just happened in the midst of trying to do something else. Creativity is a journey that may or may not lead you on the path you expected, so keep your head up and your mind open! My husband would laugh at me right now because I’ve just used almost all of my very favorite words to describe life in just one sentence :)
