Meet This Maker – Sugar Sisters + GIVEAWAY!

Today we are super excited to introduce you to the Sugar Sisters!

Sugar Sisters Design is made up of 2 sisters, Lindsay van Uitert and Kelsey Facer They’re just two chicks who love art and fabric and combined the two to design fabric. Lindsay and Kelsey were born 13 years apart, and grew up in a very creative home. They have 2 other sisters and 1 brother as well as a mom who was always, always, always sewing and crafting, and a dad who can build anything. When Kelsey went to school for graphic design, it sparked their interest in designing fabric. They both grew up sewing, quilting, project-ing, crafting, scrapbooking, painting, drawing, etc. and have always loved being creative, so they feel like this industry is exactly where they belong.

Lindsay and Kelsey’s newest fabric collection, Cabin Fever, features a cozy array of flannel fabrics with a decidedly woodsy theme.

Lindsay and Kelsey created Blocks 1 and 2 of the Meet the Makers quilt using their Cabin Fever flannel. We don’t often see flannel used in piecework, and these beautiful blocks have us inspired! Follow the Sugar Sisters on Instagram @sugarsistersdesign for more beautiful photos, ideas, and inspiration!

To get to know Lindsay and Kelsey a little better, we gave them a list of words in alphabetical order to which they could give any reply that came to mind. Enjoy this fun and refreshing look at life from the Sugar Sisters’ unique perspective!
