Katie Swindler is a maker, marketer and craft-enabler. Her life-long love affair with Chicago has made her an evangelist for audience development for Chicago theatre, dance, art and the emerging indie-craft movement. She is inspired everyday by the oh-so-Midwestern practicality of the indie-crafting community, who not only tells everyone to “Do It Yourself” but empowers them with shared knowledge, tools, encouragement and marketplaces.
