Hola. I’m Lish Dorset, and I’m a swell gal. I’m a crafter, modern quilter, craft writer, and craft lover.
For nine years I was a part of the Handmade Detroit team and the Detroit Urban Craft Fair, Michigan’s first indie craft fair. Hopefully you’ve checked it out in the past and look forward to it every year! I also wrote for Craft Magazine from 2010-2013.
Today I contribute to Metro Parent Magazine. If you have a lil’ crafter in your house or love to craft for lil’ folks, you need to check out my monthly craft feature as well as weekly blog posts on Make It. It’s always a lot of fun to think of new projects for crafters-in-training (and their families!) every week.
I’m also a proud member of DIY Network’s Made + Remade blogging team. I focus on sewing, quilting, decorating and home-love projects. I had the honor of designing and creating a quilt for the 2014 Blog Cabin.
In 2012 I was the featured guest crafter on the Martha Stewart Show. It was fantastic.
Once upon a time I was a reporter and news designer and eventually made the jump to social media and digital public relations. (Turns out everyone reads the internet.) During the day these days I’m the social media manager for The Henry Ford. Working in a museum is pretty awesome.
What else do you need to know about me? I’m a lifelong Michigander and a metro Detroit resident. I’m married to Nick Drinks and am a proud cat mom to Ronnie.
If you’d like to chat, drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave me a comment. I love to review projects and am always on the hunt for new ideas and opportunities.
