We’re happy to announce Royel Bijou will be returning to the fest this year to share her talents for turning recycled materials into new garments. In past years, she has brought both fashion shows and wonderful hands-on experiences by helping people create their own fashion accessories.

This year she’s preparing another fashion show and we can’t wait to see the cool things she brings to her table.

In her own words:

My motto is “If you can envision it, I can make it.”

Who am I? I am a wife and a mother of three children. I have been designing and sewing clothes for more than 20 years.

I enjoy coming up with unique and eclectic clothing and jewelry, things that are not normally found in stores or online.  I find that nature, and life in general offers so many options for creativity to be expressed. You can expect to find my style and color palette to flow and ebb with the environment. There is no limit to the creative things that can come from my brain.

I love the Heartland Makerfest’s Vision. Artist coming together and uplifting one another. It’s the way the world should be!
