Paper N Stitch is an online exhibition space that was created to promote talented artists, designers, makers selling handmade goods, and independent boutiques. In addition to this, the site also fosters a monthly contest for the exhibitors, where they compete for the most votes. The winner receives a cash prize ($150USD). (They figure its the least we can do to show our support.) Papernstitch is maintained by and created by Brittni and Jeff. In addition to wanting to collaborate on a project together, there was another, more important reason why the site was created. Brittni, as an artist herself, felt she was always struggling to get her work seen, but she just didn't have the means to do so. She had a website and a shop, but needed an extra boost. She thought, if she was having trouble, there most be others with the same issue. And that is how Paper N Stitch came to fruition.
