This last Monday (05/04/2020) my guests were Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby (aka The Shibaguyz). Shannon & Jason joined me on the show from their home in Seattle, WA.
This show lasted almost 2 hours with one small technical glitch. We're friends... and I had a pretty good idea that the show would get away from us. We laughed a lot. And there was some good natured kidding in both directions.
We talked about their history's We talked about their introduction into the fiber arts world and their evolution from makers to designers to instructors.
We talked about STITCHES Events and some of the other shows the Shibaguyz taught at. We discussed their concerns as activists and members of the LGBTQIA community. And we talked about the future of the industry.
The back and forth in this show was fun. And Shannon & Jason were a delight to hear from. I hope you'll check out the show.
Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby's Biography: Shannon and Jason Mullett-Bowlsby, the dynamic DIY duo known as the Shibaguyz… and the inspired creators of Shibaguyz Designz Studio. Jason’s pronouns are he and him. Shannon’s pronouns are he and him as well as them and they.
Their award winning crochet, knit, and sewing designs have been featured in and on the covers of dozens of domestic and international publications. Together, the Shibaguyz team has over 300 published patterns and 11 books credited to their name since their first design was featured on a magazine cover in 2010. Currently, they are finishing work on a new book with C&T Publishing scheduled for release December 2020.
In addition to their design work, the Shibaguyz are sought-after freelance book-packaging designers having crafted books and photography for major publishing companies like Sterling Publishing, Leisure Arts, and Creative Publishing.
The Shibaguyz have been teaching adults for 30+ years. Their enthusiasm, quirky sense of humor, and relatable teaching style have made them sought after teachers in both local and national venues like STITCHES Events, Sew Expo, and Houston Quilt Market. In addition to their live classes, the Shibaguyz also have a wide range of online classes available from Blueprint and Interweave.
Shannon and Jason are proud ambassadors for Aurifil, Clover, BERNINA, Horn of America, the Daylight Company, and are members of the Justice League (yes, they have capes to prove it).
Shannon and Jason live in Seattle, Washington with their three Shiba Inu who, more or less, support their ventures in sewing, stitching, and crafting… so long as enough time is taken for walks and treats.
During the show we talked about a lot of things. Here are the resource links to some of those things...
