You could say that Jennifer Michael of CraftyStitches in Sterling, Va., was born to sew—her father was a tailor and mother a seamstress. More recently, she’s discovered a love for quilting. Michael finds a lot of satisfaction in the process and techniques, and takes special care to pair the perfect fabrics. One of Michael’s hottest items is the “The Perfect Bridesmaid,” a jewelry roll that features a zippered pocket, an arm for rings and bracelets, and a Velcro pocket. Click below to hear her story.

This is one video in a series of interviews recorded at the Buyers Market of American Craft in Baltimore, Md., Aug. 23-25, 2010. Six members of the Capital Region Etsy Street Team (C.R.E.S.T.) shared a booth on the wholesale show floor, exhibiting work in a range of mediums and styles.
