Dora Cary - Orange Dot Quilts
Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard
Date December 2017
Dora Cary is a designer of quilts. She has an Etsy store, and she was at Quilt Market in Houston. Her quilts are AWESOME. She sells her patterns on Etsy from around $10.00 each. The directions seem really clear (although I haven't tried to make one yet!)
I wanted to interview her to understand:
Her design process
How she got her name and how she went about branding
The process of making a pattern
The process of distribution/sale of patterns
Her feelings about copyright (of course)
Her background (of course) (She's from Romania and now lives in California)
Being a quilt entrepreneur (of course)
Her social media strategy: Facebook, Instagram, Etsy, and her Website
