Pat Riesenburger is a former trial attorney who discovered that it was much more fun to play in the art studio than fight in the courtroom. Pat, an Ambassador for Swarovski’s Create-Your-Style program, uses Swarovski crystal in all of her fiber creations---the warmth of the textile and the sparkle of the crystal make for a lovely juxtaposition of textures! Pat teaches felt making throughout the United States and offers private workshops in her Florida studio. She owns Urban Stitch Studio, through which she distributes luxury fibers and embellishments. She also has a popular blog, The Crafty Retailer, which focuses on marketing for the independent craft retailer. Pat can be reached at TheCraftyRetailer@gmail.com
Pat will be assisted by her good friend, Monica Zavala-Durazo, a talented felt artist from the great state of Arizona.
