Vendor Q&A with Maganda Design
What is your craft all about?
My craft is all about fun accessories – everyday embellishments to brighten your day. I’ve been experimenting with fiber, most recently creating a line of knit and crocheted chainlink necklaces. I also started to make feather headpieces. Plus I use my trusty button maker to make magnets and pins my boyfriend and I design either on the computer or from found objects.
How did you get started in your craft?
I taught myself to knit a few years ago from books and YouTube videos while I was living in Boston. I made craft-minded friends who encouraged my new-found interest in fibers. We had knit/crochet get togethers called “Knitting Avengers” which I have since started here in D.C.
What is your favorite piece/product you will have with you at the Handmade Mart?
Most definitely my handknit chainlink necklaces. I had to make chains and chains of I-Cord and I’m really proud of the end product.
Where can folks find your craft outside the Handmade Mart?
You can find me on Etsy at www.magandadesign.etsy.com and www.ernestshort.etsy.com
