KM Stitchery


Lindsay Keating-Moore from KM Stitchery creates Eco Friendly Feminist Fashion, using hand cut stencils of feminists throughout history (herstory!), and printing them on recycled clothing.

Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
I started crafting in college with my friends. I originally started out knitting and crocheting, then I learned sewing. I got more and more involved in the craft scene. I started making and selling applique clutch bags. Then some of my friends were stenciling and I thought it looked like a fun easy way to put images on clothing. I wanted to make and sell items that had more of statement and more meaning to them. So I decided to stencil feminists!

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
I'm going to have to list 4 things. I love eating and making vegan baked goods, reading (<3>

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
Promotion and marketing! It's really hard to get your stuff out there. Ads are really expensive, but I just try and tell as many people as possible, put up stickers, hand out business cards and mail out press kits.

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
This in a size large.

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
A Marine biologist! I really loved animals and I was also a swimmer. I was on a swim team for 7 years. I wanted to be a trainer at Sea World....now I realize how horrible it is to keep animals in captivity for entertainment's sake.

What does your future hold?
I hope to keep expanding my business. I'd like to add a line of handbags to my shop. I've also been thinking about opening a second etsy shop (maybe photography, or sewn items).
