Burning Fork Studio and the Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team (KCHST) were featured in this past weekend’s Knoxville News Sentinel.

Lahla Deakins, owner of Burning Fork Studio, and Lisa Mueller, owner of Sassy Glass Studio, spoke with reporter Ali James about the upcoming Etsy.com Global Craft Party on June 20th, 2013.

Deakins and Mueller are captains of Knoxville’s Etsy.com creative organization, KCHST.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:


“Last year’s Global Etsy Craft Party in Knoxville was nearly a craft fail, said Lisa Mueller co-captain of the Knoxville Creative Hands Etsy Street Team (KCHST). “It was a free-for-all,” laughs Mueller. “We had an idea of what we were going to make, and we made a huge glittery, glue-gun mess.”

“It’s more about having fun rather than the end result,” adds Lahla Deakins, the team’s other captain.

“KCHST is comprised of Knoxville-area artists, craftspeople and creative minds as well as vendors of vintage goods and craft supplies. The group has more than 300 active members, but not all members meet in person. Monthly newsletters are sent to members to update them on local events and tips for running a business on Etsy.com, which is an online marketplace for buying and selling handmade and vintage items.”
