"I have always been drawn to anything creative. From painting to theater to making earrings for myself in 3rd grade out of tissues I colored with highlighters; I have been making things and being involved in the arts in many forms since I was a child." 2nd time UCU Vendor Rachel of Danger Peach has focused that creative energy into embroidery. And adorable embroidery at that! She will be premiering all new work at UCU, so do not miss it. Danger Peach has also given us a cute, cute, cute hand embroidered plastic owl necklace with vintage fabric on the back to give away to one lucky reader. So Rachel, got a couple questions for ya.
UCU: What is your favorite part about Urban Craft Uprising or other large-scale craft shows?
DP: Urban Craft Uprising has the stable core that you want from a well put together craft show and you will find that consistently at every UCU show. In addition, from show to show, they bring you new art and new experiences in a fun and unique way.
UCU: What do you like best about crafting/creating your product?
DP: I love working with vintage themes and materials and reworking them into something new infused with my personal point of view, sense of humor and style. My work is where I get to express anything I want in any way that I want. At the moment I am making things from many materials into jewelry, accessories and wall art. All with one thing in common, embroidery! There are no limits or boundaries, it can be whatever I want it to be and that is very exciting and freeing.
Fantastic! Thanks Rachel. Want to win the owl necklace? Leave a comment below. We will select one winner at random and announce on our blog next Friday.
