Feature Friday - Robin's Flight

Today's featured artist is Robin of Robin's Flight.  Robin is a fellow CAST member who creates fun and colourful crocheted bags and wallets.  We also discovered a similarity in our working backgrounds!  Let's see what she had to say about herself and her art...

Tell us a bit about yourself. 
I live in Livonia (Detroit area), Michigan, USA. I've been in this area for 12 years now. I'm a stay at home mom of 2 wonderful kids, ages 5 and 2. Before I had kids, I did cancer research.


Describe yourself in 5 words.
Creative, resourceful, wife and mother

When and how did you first start crafting/creating?
My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was 8, and my mother to sew shortly after that. I picked up the crochet again while looking for a job after grad school. I started with afghans, but moved to bags and other smaller projects that took less time.

What do you create and what are your favourite materials with which to work?
I make crocheted bags and purses that are fully lined with fabric. I put in zipper pockets and other intricacies which make them more useful and durable. I usually use cotton yarn, and pretty fabrics that catch my eye.


When and how did you start selling online?
I started my etsy shop exactly a year ago.


Describe your store in 5 words.
My bags have been described as "casual chic," unique, sophisticated, trendy and pretty




Where can we find you online?
My etsy shop is at: http://RobinsFlight.etsy.com
