We are so excited to have yet another brilliant maker, Sarah Goldschadt, with us at World Maker Faire New York. She'll be helping folks "Make and Take" some super cute felt barettes! This project is one of the simplest you'll find in her upcoming book, Craft a Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects (Quirk Books, October 2, 2012); it's kid-friendly and fun for kids of all ages. Who doesn't love a little on-the-go hair adornment or instant pocket bling?! We love how Sarah's book offers daily inspiration along with weekly themes to kick-start creativity, from rainbows and mustaches to ladybugs and groundhogs, and we love that Sarah's whimsical projects require no advanced skills or crazy tools.
Sarah is a Danish American freelance graphic designer and crafter who loves to make things, travel, and take pictures. Her work has appeared in Oprah, Better Homes & Gardens, Martha Stewart Living, Food Network Magazine, Do It Yourself, and Kids’ Rooms. She lives in New York City and blogs at sah-rah.com. Read on to find out more about Sar-rrrrrah!
My name is Sarah (pronounced sah-rah) Goldschadt and today I'm freaking out (in a good way) about the launch of my book, Craft-a-Day! I'm freaking out in a bad way, though, about how my to-do list never ends!
My crafting weapons of choice are my hands! I knit, sew, crochet, and make paper crafts, and when I think up a new project I can't stop thinking about it until I have the time to make it.
My favorite designer is Donna Wilson, and when I'm looking for inspiration, I browse Scandinavian blogs. After a long day of making things, I like to watch Netflix on my projector.
I got started crafting when I became a Girl Scout in the first grade. What I like best about knitting is wearing a finish product that was completely handmade, but what I find most challenging is keeping the yarn untangled in intarsia knitting.
What I wish I would have known before starting my business is that the work never ends. If I ever stop creating, you'll find me traveling the world. My favorite luxury is a vacation!
The first thing I do when I wake up is play Draw Something. I can’t live without design.
To me, DIY means completing a project from start to finish.My favorite thing about making is being able to create the perfect gift for friends and family.
Thanks Sarah! There will be tons to create at Maker Faire. See you there!
