Make sure to get your ticket to the Akron Ale Fest in order to get to check out breweries like his first hand!
Our next artist in the Meet the Maker series is Snow.
My name is Samantha Hudson. I am the creator of snow., a crochet shop specializing in amigurumi. Amigurumi is a Japanese word meaning crochet/knitted stuffed doll.
How do you do it?
I am a one woman show with a pile of yarn, a crochet hook, and some killer math skills.
What isn't new?
I am constantly creating new pieces and challenging myself because I bore easily.
Do you have a recent milestone?
My most recent milestone was being asked to do the cover of a book. I created the figures used for the front and back covers of The Story of Archie the Talking Snowman.
What inspires you?
I find inspiration anywhere and everywhere. Just the other day I was staring a tile, and now I have a new dinosaur design.
Why are you excited for The Akron Ale Fest?
I'm super excited for the Akron Ale Fest because not only is it on my birthday- but because I love Akron and the community that comes out to support its arts and events.
How would you go about world domination?
World domination is really a question of where to start building your army. If you played Risk as a kid, you know what I'm talking about.
Drink of choice?
I'm a whiskey girl. On the rocks.
Come wish Sam a happy birthday at the Akron Ale Fest June 25th.
