Episode #126: Kelly Stevens of Superbuzzy

July 30th, 2018

On this episode, we're talking about running an online and brick-and-mortar fabric shop with my guest, Kelly Stevens of Superbuzzy.

After finishing graduate school and some years working in higher education administration, Kelly rediscovered an early love of textiles and design in the late 1990s. Upon discovering Japanese craft books and modern Japanese fabrics, an obsession was born that later turned into the concept for Superbuzzy. The shop opened online in 2006, and then moved to a flagship storefront located in Ventura, California in 2011.
