Interview with Sara of Two Turnips!

November 26th, 2008

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.

Two Turnips is a cross-country collaboration between my mother and I.

Sewing has been a big part of both of our lives, and when I was

pregnant with my son we realized that sewing children’s clothes would

be a fun way to collaborate.

What are your favorite crafts and how did you first get involved with crafting?

Sewing, of course! I remember very fondly the sewing lessons I took

with a friend at her grandmother’s house when we were seven years old.

I made a pillow in the shape of an ‘S’ for my name. It wasn’t pretty,

but I was proud of it.

What do you like best, coming up with ideas or executing them?

Executing them – it’s wonderful to see tangible results of your vision.

Are you super organized or messy?What does your workspace look like?

I think I tend toward the organized size of things, but only because

my house is so small! My workspace used to be in what is now my son’s

bedroom, so now everything is neatly tucked into drawers and only

comes out when I am using my sewing machine, which hides in my son’s

closet when not in use.

Any exciting future plans or developments in the works for your business?

I’m looking forward to creating a new website, a blog, and introducing

new lines. We’ll see how long this all takes!
