unexpected guests: Sarah Goldschadt.
today’s unexpected guests is a little different — we’re visiting a home, as well as a book. we’re dropping in on new york city’s Sarah Goldschadt, the author of craft-a-day, published by quirk books and featuring over 430 pages of simple crafts broken down into weekly themes in which sarah crafted, wrote, and photographed the whole thing! By day sarah works as a graphic designer for magazines like Martha Stewart Living, Oprah, and more recently Architectural Digest, and at night she’s a craft-a-holic. Sarah knits, sews, crochets, and just can’t get enough of decorating her apartment. Heavily influenced by her Danish side — Sarah was born in Copenhagen — and thanks to Door Sixteen’s influence, she likes to keep her small studio apartment really minimal and black & white. Let’s have a look around.
Where do you live, and what are a few of your favorite things to do in your neighborhood?
I live in a 5th floor, walkup studio in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City. Previously I had lived in Brooklyn; Des Moines, Iowa; St. Paul, Minnesota; Copenhagen, Denmark. My favorite thing to do in this city is to walk and wander. Favorite pit stops include Central Park, the Fashion District, and the High Line.
Do you have a secret spot or off the beaten path place you think we should know about?
Stiles Farmer’s Market! It looks like a circus tent in a parking lot but it’s actually home to the cheapest produce in the city.
What five things can’t you live without?
What’s your favorite possession?
My collection of mini things (mostly owls) from all over the world.
do you have a favorite quote or expression?
My Grandpa’s favorite phrase: “Be Good. Have Fun. Get it Done.”
