She also loves exploring Portland's great restaurants & endless trails with her sweet dog Osa.

Q&A with Lydia—>

 

Thoroughly enjoyed the shirt workshop taught by Lydia. She created a really encouraging, fun classroom environment that inspired me to believe I could do it. And I did! Her skilled but non-intimidating instruction resulted in a shirt I love to wear and can proudly say - I actually made this myself! Thanks Lydia and Klum House!
