Paige Anderson, 25 - The Wild Sweet Pea Quilt & Embroidery Co.
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
First and foremost, I'm a wife and mother with a passion for the outdoors. I'm also a textile + fiber artist specializing in quilting and hand embroidery.
I started selling hand embroidered hoop art in 2013, and since then my business has expanded into a variety of sewn products including quilts of all sizes, embroidered canvasses, embroidered tees, zipper pouches and quilted wall hangings. I started doing this full time in 2017. After my daughter was born, I realized that the environmental field that I had been educated in and had worked for the last few years was not my calling. The first 25 years of my life I had been ignoring my abundant creativity until, as a new mom, I said no more. Do more of what makes you happy, and the rest will fall into place... that's the idea.
