Sandra Kardaras-Flick, mother of two in Durham, North Carolina.
Why We Love Her:
This self-proclaimed “geek” (she’s a professional computer programmer) grew up in an arts-and-crafty type family who influenced her to express herself creatively. Although she’s always had an eye for fashion and an interest in textiles, she didn’t start making clothes until she became a mother. Sandra is the driving force behind the popular Etsy line, designing, sewing and photographing every bright, fun, silly piece of clothing. We’re also thrilled whenever we find shops that make stylish boys’ clothing, since those are far and few between.
