Episode #52: Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction

July 6th, 2015

On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast we’re talking about running an independent publishing company with my guest, Amy Barickman.

Founder and owner of Indygo Junction, Amy Barickman is a creative leader in the fabric arts industry. In 1990, Amy founded Indygo Junction, a sewing pattern and book publishing company which has published over twelve hundred pattern titles and 80 books. We talk about the maker scene in Kansas City, the unique business model that Amy has developed for Indygo Junction, trade shows past, present, and future, self-publishing and more.

And, of course, Amy and I recommend great stuff we're enjoying right now. Thank you for listening!
