How did this group of artists initially connect? How did you all communicate and plan the logistics for Field Trip?
This community of pattern designers and illustrators is so warm, encouraging and inspiring, so many of us met through mutual love of each other’s work, and by connecting by social media. We swim in the same circles! The process of putting this event together was very organic and has been a wonderful experience — it’s amazing to see what happens when you put together a group of strong, entrepreneurial, talented women! We are all working towards the same goal, all chipping in and helping each other along the way. The collaborative aspect has been incredible. Because we all live in different cities (and some on different continents!), we’ve been in touch regularly by email and some fun video meetings too.
