Meet Pile of Craft Vendor, Hillery Sproatt of Anschtecka & Hillery!

My name is Hillery Sproatt and I am a partner with Annika Blomberg in Anschtecka & Hillery. I make prints, drawings, and embroidered objects. You can visit my website and blog at

I am most excited by spots and specks, details and forgottens, things left on the street and beneath beds. I am a collector of small things and I try to be attentive to the relationships formed by otherwise disparate objects and images. I often make believe that tiny worlds exist in the smallest things and if we look long enough we might get to see something truly special.

For much of my work, I use reclaimed materials, cutting room scraps, and found books. My mom has a clothing company called Rebe. She designs some of my favorite women's clothing and handbags! I often get my best fabric scraps from her. You can check out her newest collection on her website at

If I could have one thing to eat tonight, it would definitely have to be Thai food. My favorite!

If you're looking to catch up with me after Pile of Craft, I sell much of my work at ReForm School, which is this amazing hub of curated handmade objects in Los Angeles, CA. You can visit their site at You can also shop for my goodies along with Rebe at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco or on my website at
