Spring Bada-Bing Crafter Interview with Beth and Kinsey Rice of Tributary

Beth and Kinsey Rice of Tributary

We do a variety of different goods including clutches, kitchen linens, printed cards, aprons and more. We’re inspired by nature and organic lines. Lately, we’ve been focusing on
items for the household ever since we’ve been married. I love the being surrounded by handmade things at home.

How long have you been a crafter or designer? I (Beth) have been doing Tributary for the past three years, but have been sewing for six years.

How did you get started with your craft? My husband (Kinsey) actually taught me to sew better. Before sewing, I used to do a variety of other crafts like knitting, paper crafts, and jewelry.

What are your influences? Nature, vintage printed fabric, ceramics, organic lines and forms, gardens, and vegetables.

Do you have a particular item you want featured?
This image is of an embroidered tree scene in a wooden embroidery hoop. I really like the idea of hanging up a little piece of nature inside. The cost is under $20 and is a great way to show off a handmade look.

What do you like best about Spring?
Plants in the
garden begin to grow and fresh vegetables!
