Meet the Author

Cassie Barden has been involved in making art her whole life, from cartooning, filmmaking, and painting to making odd stuffed animals and creating costumes for Burning Man and Halloween. An interest in both sewing and fashion inspired her to start creating her own one-of-a-kind bags and accessories that appeal to both her utilitarian and style-conscious natures. When she's not sewing, Cassie enjoys two Seattle institutions: live music and drinking coffee. Cassie is inspired by contemporary art and design, anything retro or old-fashioned, and Seattle's urban culture.
