Artist Sara E Lynch: Open House 2020 Edition
Sara E Lynch was started in 2013.
For masks, I have aimed to use repurposed materials as much as possible. Fast fashion has a terrible impact on our planet and I don’t want to contribute to that. Home sewing practices have also changed quite a bit and many people have collections of an older family member’s sewing supplies that they don’t know what to do with.
Local means doing the best you can to decrease the carbon footprint of whatever it is you are doing or purchasing.
I love sorting through and choosing fun fabric and color patterns. Especially when someone gives me a bag of random fabric pieces and I get to go through it and see the prints they thought I could use.
Initially, there was a much higher demand for masks than sewists could meet. That has lessened now that manufactures are able to make masks but it’s been a little intense.
The Co-op is great because while i don’t have to sell the individual items I bring there, I often run into people who are excited to share that they bought something I made at the Co-op. I also like being able to drop off an order and pick up my groceries in one trip.
Currently, I’m looking at properties in the village of Potsdam so I could combine my work and living space. I was focused on in-person events and community workspace but COVID has made me reconsider that. I am working out how to teach art and clay classes over zoom which I imagine will be a good thing to be able to offer.
The best way to reach me regarding sales and classes is always email@example.com/.
