Creative Diaries | Hackwith Design | Interviewed by Breanna Rose

Lisa Hackwith is the talented clothing designer + creator behind Hackwith Design House, which is local here to Minneapolis. Her taste is fresh and one of a kind … an absolute must see. With only limited quantities in stock, her work is something you have to jump on. Plus, she was just named Minnesota Monthly’s best local designer. A legit honor. For this creative diary entry, she was to focus on one single work day and answer a few simple questions about the good, the bad, and the inspiring. This is what happened, truthfully.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING THAT YOU DID THIS MORNING : When I woke up this morning the first thing that I did was drink a cup of coffee while I checked my email, browsed Pinterest and posted a photo to Instagram.

DESCRIBE ONE CHALLENGE THAT YOU FACED : Today I sewed all day! When I launched my website in September I planned on releasing one new item each week but after the first month I decided to start listing two items every week. Lately I’ve been sewing like crazy so that I can release two pieces each week up until Christmas. After Christmas I’m going to take a few weeks off to re-group and I’m very much looking forward to that!

DESCRIBE ONE ACCOMPLISHMENT YOU ACHIEVED : Today I almost finished sewing 11 rompers that will be released in a couple of weeks. I just have to sew in the zippers tomorrow morning and then I’ll be all done.

DESCRIBE ONE THING YOU LEARNED : I learned that my dog Samson has been sneaking naps up on the couch when I’m not looking.

WHAT IS THE LAST THING YOU DID FOR WORK : The last thing that I did for work today was to package up all my sales from today so that I can drop them off at the Post Office tomorrow morning.

  9. Aaaanh, so that’s her behind the gorgeous sweater that Elise from Pennyweight was showing us on her blog ! Waouh.
    She’s like a small factory all on her own. Must be quite stressful, needing to produce more and more as the number of clients increases…
    Is she planning on hiring at some point ?
