Brit is twenty-nine mother of four. She met her significant other when she was ten, but didn’t get together until she was twenty-six. Although she was born in Alaska, she moved to Oregon at the age of eight and has been living there since. When she is not sewing, she is doing the other thing that she loves: reading!
Q: What made you decide to start making booksleeves?
A: I decided to make booksleeves because my mom was making them for me but I needed them a bit more padded. Then I put them on Etsy to try and see if it’d go anywhere. It took a bit, but I feel like I’m doing well.
Q: How long have you been making them?
A: I have been making them since October 2018.
Q: How did you decide your shop’s name?
A: My son actually decided it one night while we were reading a book. He knew I was trying to think of a name to put on Etsy and he said, “how about book in a sweater?”
Q: To date, what’s been your favorite print?
A: Oh man, that’s a tough one. My favorite sleeve to date is probably my light purple floral with gold trims on the roses.
Q: On the book front, what’s your favorite genre?
A: My favorite genre is thrillers, but I’ll read anything. Especially something with a deep meaning and has you thinking about it long after.
Q: What’s three adjectives to describe you?
A: Three adjectives to describe me are generous, impulsive, & easy-going!
