Patti runs Potluck Press alongside her children (& two grandsons). She is inspired by the stack of books on her nightstand, her garden, and her three grandkiddos. She is solely powered by unsweetened iced tea…with extra ice.
Rosie takes care of many of the day to day responsibilities of Potluck. Her desk is most often a mess, but she knows where everything is (most of the time).
Lim runs the printing press that makes our towels & totes. The loves of his life are his family, his hometown of Tacoma & pho.
Matt runs our print press and also manages our inventory. He often has his headphones on listening to all things Seattle sports.
We wish we could clone Karen. Good at everything and always willing to share her delicious baked goods with us. Don’t know how we ever survived without her.

Jennifer Parker is an innovative graphic and mixed media artist from Mill Valley, California. She has art directed and designed with distinguished gift industry companies for over a decade. Her extensive knowledge of Victorian imagery “ephemera”, coupled with a mastery of digital collage, sets Jennifer’s signature layered style apart in paper product design.
Jennifer’s mixed media, assemblages and licensed creations are inspired by her global excursions, spiritual interests, and her sensitivity to natural materials, rich textures and nuanced color.
Anne is a lifelong collector, constantly pursuing creativity and artful living. She considers herself a bricoleur – pronounced bree-kooh-loor –a (French word meaning someone with the ability to transform diverse objects into something new.) The wide range of her collections allows serendipity to happen as the creative process begins. Her card line was aptly named Bricolage, as it was born out of her need to play with a collection of ephemera that had taken over a corner of her studio. Anne and her husband have recently created a new business in the historic gold country town of Mokelumne Hill, California that is all about sharing their love of art. Visit www.acmeartmokehill.com to see what the latest artful thing she is up to.
I am a securely insecure introverted extrovert, peace loving Drama Queen, civilized trouble-maker, open-minded skeptic, dogged dog fancier, day tripping homebody, wavering realist, cynical people lover, and a great listener who can’t stop talking.
We call her Emma, Emma! She is responsible for many of the designs you see in our shop. She enjoys a good cup of coffee, putting organizational systems in place and her two darling boys.
