Margot Potter is a woman of diverse talents and interests. A classically trained actress, professional vocalist, respected designer, prolific author, freelance writer and blogger, public speaker, TV hostess and consultant, she's a true Renaissance woman (or a Jill of all Trades depending on which day you ask her.) She approaches everything with her signature sense of humor and copious amounts of joie de vivre because she feels that if it's not fun, it's simply not worth doing.
Impatient, Imperfect, Irreverent and Impetuous, Margot is a design expert for the rest of us. She invites people to not only think outside of the box, but to tear it up, repurpose it into something fabulous and stand on it to reach for the stars. She's equally comfortable at the writer's desk, in the design studio, onstage or in front of the camera.
Her popular The Impatient Beader how-to book series is a best selling trilogy available at major book purveyors and online. She is also the author of Beyond the Bead and New Dimensions in Bead and Wire Jewelry.
Margot has appeared on a variety of TV shows and has been featured in numerous blog interviews, podcasts and webcasts locally and nationally. Margot's no nonsense approach to crafting demystifies the creative process for the average Joe and Jane, inviting everyone to the creative table and convincing all of them that they too can "Create without FiltersTM"
Margot lives in a 127-year old former Amish school house with her 10 year old daughter Avalon, husband Drew, two pot bellied pigs, sixteen pecky chickens and one snarky but lovable terrier. She spends her days in her sunny studio dreaming up new ideas, fine tuning the art of shameless self promotion and plotting world takeover one crafty idea at a time.
