Who is your favorite Colorado Creative?

We think the Ladies Fancywork Society is making amazing artwork that is accessible to many different types of people in everyday contexts. Their work is lots of fun to look at, is often in surprising environments and is beautifully made.

What's on your agenda in the coming year?

We are looking to open a sister store in the Bay area.

Who do you think will get noticed in the local arts community in 2014?

Samuel Schimek, owner of the I Heart Denver Store, has done a lot for making locally produced art and goods available to locals and travelers alike. His genius in putting his store in a mall setting that typically caters to big chain stores helps bring awareness to the availability of goods made by independent designers.

Visit SEWN online or on Facebook for more information.

Throughout the year, we'll be shining the spotlight on 100 superstars from Denver's rich creative community. Stay tuned to Show and Tell for more, or visit the 100 Colorado Creatives archive to catch up.
