Dustbowl: How did you get started?
Margaret Weimer: I really liked making little clothing for kids!! I like making kids look adorable. My original intention was to make nicer clothes for boys because I have a little boy (girls get all the cute stuff!) but I found myself drawn to bright colors and dresses and basically switched gears there.. but I still do reversible overalls, lounge pants, and hopefully clip on ties soon to accommodate both genders!
DB: What do you make?
MW: Childrens clothing. Including reversible pinafore dresses (aka cross back jumpers), reversible overalls, diaper covers/ bloomers (for both boys and girls), lounge pants, crochet hats and hopefully a bunch of new items soon!
DB: How long have you been crafting?
MW: For about 3 years now.
DB: What inspires you most?
MW: Fabrics! I am a fabric fiend! I love all kinds..I even buy it when I don't need it, just to have it. It definitely inspires me to make new items.
DB: What is your favorite thing to create?
MW: I really like making these reversible pinafore dresses.
DB: Your favorite thing in the world?
MW: Spending time with my 3 year old son and husband! family days are the best.
DB: Your favorite place in the world?
MW: I really love Poland. It's where I am from/born originally. We're from the rural area. I love being away from the city and really just connect with nature and natural surroundings.
DB: Why do you want to be a part of Dustbowl?
MW: Because I would love to travel to OK! Although it is quite close, I've never been and I really love to be a part of awesome/unique handmade and local craft shows.
Let's be sure to give miss Margaret a warm OKLAHOMA welcome!
