My favorite Show Pony contributing creator has always been artist/designer AMY HEMMENS. Her knit crotcheted pieces are spun from another dimension. Each hat balanced with an intricate craft compostion that allows multiple options on the head. Every piece so original that it not only tells a story but commands a precious place in the owner's closet. Amy has recently opened her very own space called ATELIER :Dressmakers Workshop, Vintage & Handmade Boutique. The darling SHOP is located on 1617 16th St. in Sacramento, CA.
I recommend locals to hang out and experience her designs by trying them on and seeing all the cool ways they can be worn. When people would ask me about the designer and I mentioned she lived in Sacramento, they always assumed she was from Berlin, or Iceland making custom things for Bjork.
