Meet the Maker, Mary Pow

by Cindy Lindgren

Meet Mary Pow, HandmadeMN member, designer, textile artist and successful creator behind
Minnebites and Mary Pow.  Minnebites launched in 2011 with her creatively sewn sharks, bugs and
whales pouches. This year Mary concentrated on the launch of her signature line of handbags and accessories at The American Craft Show last month at the St. Paul Rivercentre. I visited Mary's booth and admired not only her entire line of stylish bags, wrap belts and clutches, but her visual branding as well.

This event is hosted by the American Craft Coucil. More than 225 top contemporary jewelry, clothing, furniture and home decor artists from across the country were present. Here's a link to Mary's blog, recapping her experience with this prestigious group of artists.

You have an opportunity to meet Mary this Saturday, May 14th at The Textile Center in Minneapolis. Her collection of handbags and accessories will be on view and available for purchase. Mary will be there to chat about her work. What a great opportunity to meet this talented designer! Here's a link for more information.
