Wise Craft Handmade is a tiny little handmade company of exactly 1. That’s me, Blair Stocker. I am multiple hat wearer, hand maker, patchworker, writer, and teacher. A modern quilter and DIY’er. I find great inspiration in making beautiful new original quilts and pillows out of vintage, used, old, or forgotten textiles. I love making the old, new again. So much so, I recently wrote a book about it! Wise Craft Quilts: Turning Beloved Fabrics into Meaningful Patchwork (out March 2017, read more about it here). I am inspired by my background in apparel and fabric design, and like to apply the same color and styling principles towards the handmade things I create today. I am inspired by daily life, vintage fabric, the math of quilt making, thrift stores, baby clothes, and fabrics that hold special memories (which I call “spirit cloth”). My color palette is usually bright and quirky. Even though I wear mostly black in real life. I live and work out of my home studio in Seattle, Washington (let me take you on a virtual tour!), been married to a pretty awesome guy named Peter for 23+ years, and have two teenagers and a cat. Life is good.
