Angie Cooper (she/her)
Angie Cooper is the owner and artist behind a small Seattle based business, My Moon Macrame. She enjoys teaching fiber arts and sharing her passion for crafting with others. Her macrame journey all started when her cat was constantly knocking over her plants, so she decided to make a plant hanger to keep them out of his reach. Learning to macrame wasn’t easy at first but it was a lot of fun! She knew there was a better way to learn this fun craft and set out to teach others how to macrame! Each class is taught to cater to students of all levels. With every class each student will walk away with their own original art, skills and tools to continue their journey in macrame.

Emily Ellen AndersoN (SHe/her)
I have worked with hundreds of designers, artists, creatives helping them build business strategies, profit, and achieve goals. Here’s what I learned… There is no amount of business blueprint, action items, organization tools, or marketing strategy that will make a business work. The artist has to make it work. I give artists both. The tools to understand their ‘brains on business’ and gain awareness over their thought habits AS THEY GO ABOUT BUILDING THEIR ART BUSINESS with profit building strategies and sales knowledge. The result is that my creatives don’t stop. They know what’s possible. And when an artist doesn’t stop …They get what they came for.

Kristen is one of the organizers of Urban Craft Uprising, a maker, a baker and a reader. UCU takes up a good chunk of my time but when I’m not clacking away on my computer, I can often be found in my studio crocheting a variety of food items, baking for an occasion or simply because I have an extra tablespoon of lemon juice I simply can’t let go to waste OR reading. My goal for 2023 is to have just as much fun as I work and continue to build on community. I LOVE the maker community and feel so grateful to have landed in a craft show over 25 years ago. I have participated in many craft shows in the country over those years, wrote 8 or 9 craft books and love working with small businesses SO MUCH. Camp is definitely one of my favorite events to plan for all year! When I think of camp I am almost as starry eyed as I am here looking at this amazing dessert. I can’t wait to see you all!

Nikki Furlong (she/her)

I grew up in Minnesota and was the creative child; drawing, painting, sewing, crocheting and dancing. I moved to Pacific Northwest in 1998 and started my journey as a parent and brought arts and crafts back into my life for my daughters. Like many artists and crafters, I explored various mediums and I found paper quilling. I immediately took to quilling for its versatility and it combined my love of art and craft. I’ve been quilling for over 10 years, the past 4 years have been experimenting with visual art and the past year as a businesswoman and maker. I hope to continue to educate people about this not well known art form and the beauty and relevance of traditional craft.

Renee Beaudoin (she/her)
Renée Beaudoin grew up wandering through meadows and dreaming up what her next meal would be, so it is no surprise she ended up working with both food and flowers. Her path took a detour by way of the theater where she trained and worked as a costume designer in Boston. She was known equally for her visual design as well as her weekly theater brunches and annual giant orphan Thanksgiving, so food continued to be a thread that tied it all together.
Transitioning from the stage and back to the wildness of the west coast, Renee spent two years out on the Olympic Peninsula in the heart of the forest, where one’s local grocery is the nearest farm stand and oysters are a cliffside descent away. There she developed her deep love for foraging, botany and fire-side cooking. Renee created a wild focused floral company, FOREST TO VASE and the woods & fields of the Pacific Northwest still play a vital role in her life.
At the Pantry, Renee runs wildflower classes and field trips, leads farm camp at Quillisascut, and teaches both adult and kids culinary classes, and is one of the rotating chefs for their monthly family suppers.
