these are not mislabeled but they are smaller than I expected. Very expensive for what I got.

I love putting together kits. New Stitched letters; you choose which letters you want.
This gorgeous sample was woven by a friend of mine using one of my acrylic looms. That's my logo! How cool is that?

About

Fiber art + technology

My work is a unique combination of geekiness: traditional textile techniques, like sewing and weaving; high tech elements including laser cutting and digital fabric printing; and lots of puns. I am the co-author of the newly released "The Spoonflower Handbook", which is a how-to guide to designing your own fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap. Everything you see in my shop is designed by me, from the printed graphics to the one-of-a-kind fabrics to the designs that are laser cut.

I work with Spoonflower (digital fabric printing) and Ponoko (laser cutting) to help me produce my pieces, because their services let me access professional equipment and materials that I couldn't do on my own. I consider them my production partners. I design and create "on-demand" the custom supplies I need and then I complete all of the sewing, finishing and assembly myself.

I live in Minneapolis with my husband and two black labs. Art is my full time job, whether I am teaching kids, exhibiting my work, collaborating with other artists, writing a tutorial or working with arts organizations in my community. It's never the same job two days in a row and that's pretty cool. I teach classes throughout the country on digital fabric design, technology, and nearly any kind of fiber art technique. I worked for 11 years as the director of education at an art center that specializes in fiber art (www.textilecentermn.org) and there I wrote curriculum, coordinated classes and trained other artists and teachers. I am a member of the 2016 Etsy Sellers Advisory Board.

I also run the shop pixelatedbybeckarahn.etsy.com, which features clothing and accessories made from my original digitally printed fabrics, oboedamore.etsy.com featuring oboe themed gifts and I administrate FeelieFaces.etsy.com, which is a collaboration between three artist friends and proceeds that support students at the local design collage.

Frequently asked questions

Is there sales tax?

For MN residents, 8.025% sales tax will be calculated and added at check out.

What address will your package ship to?

Please make sure that the address associated with your Etsy and/or Paypal account is current and correct. I ship to the address which is provided to Etsy when you check out and it is automatically entered into the shipping label. I am not responsible for re-shipping costs if you provide an address with errors or one that is outdated and a package is undeliverable.

Can you tell me more about the return policy for kits?

If you have opened or used a kit, it is no longer in original condition and you may not return it. If you have a problem, concern or questions about your item, please contact me within 14 days of receiving your item and I will work with you to make it right.

What if my item is damaged in shipping?

If a piece is damaged in shipping, please contact me within 7 days and I will repair, refund or replace the damaged item.

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to do custom sets of buttons for your weaving group, guild or retreat. Convo me with your ideas and we can work out details and prices to create a custom listing for you.

Where do you get your fabrics?

I design all of my fabrics and have them digitally printed. The patterns that I create are digital files. They start out as a photograph, illustration or a piece of handmade art. A giant ink jet printer then digitally prints my design onto many different fabrics. I work with a company called Spoonflower to do the printing, because they enable me to work with large professional quality printers that I couldn’t otherwise have access to.

Wholesale availability

Yes. Absolutely. Contact me and we can talk about the details.
