Episode #37: Vanessa Vargas Wilson (The Crafty Gemini)

December 1st, 2014

I'm talking about YouTube with Vanessa Vargas Wilson. Vanessa is best known as The Crafty Gemini. She makes weekly instructional videos about sewing, quilting, organic gardening, woodworking, and more. Her YouTube channel has 162,000+ subscribers and over 15 million views. Vanessa and her husband are raising their two young children on a five acre organic farm in Florida. A few years ago Vanessa won the YouTube NextUp contest, which included special training by YouTube, new equipment, and a $35,000 cash prize. Hear how that win helped to propel her career forward. We also talk about Vanessa's Latina heritage and the untapped market of Latina sewing videos and blogs.
