Violet Craft, speaking daily at 11am

Violet Craft
Violet is a licensed fabric designer and distributes her own line of sewing patterns, but mostly she is a momma, a wife, a friend and a maker. Violet was born in the Old West, where she pursued her education in business and finance. The start of her career in software development brought her to the Pacific Northwest where, to quote Violet, "I  bagged my man, feathered my nest and stitched it all together." Always drawn to art, craft and make-ing, the birth of her first daughter compelled Violet to ditch her corporate career and seek out her passion.

Violet's children's apparel line,
Violet's quilt
Kung Fu Bambini, reached boutiques in 2004. Her first fabric collection debuted with Michael Miller Fabrics in Spring 2011, along with the first Violet Craft Distinctive Lifestyle Sewing Patterns. Violet continues to develop new patterns and products, and recently launched her first sewing notion, the indispensable Violet Craft Seam Roller. She will debut her first fabric collection with Robert Kaufman later this fall, and continues to teach sewing and design across the country.
