Meet Heidi, the newest addition to the JonWye team. I first met Heidi at an event called ‘Crafts and Kisses’ and then again at a big D.C. festival, Adam’s Morgan Day. Through a series of interesting circumstances Heidi is now my first intern. The gold standard to which all future interns will be judged. She works full time, is a full time student at the Corcoran School of Art, and on her first day in the workshop put in 7 hours, 3 of them just making belt loops. A task that is a pain in the bum, errrr… labor of love. Heidi gets 2 gold stars for her first day. I coveted gold stars in elementary school but don’t think I got very many.
