Handicraft was placed in my cradle

With a tailor as a mom, who is also passionate about knitting, I was just constantly surrounded by "handmade". I loved making great clothes for our Barbie dolls together with my girlfriend from my mom's fabric scraps. That's my fondest childhood memory. I've always wanted to have something special, be it for the doll or for myself. And it was just great when I wore a unique piece at celebrations.

While my girlfriend has remained faithful to sewing, I initially turned to knitting.

Until I bought a handicraft magazine in 1998 (I still have it!) and discovered hand-embroidered Easter eggs in it. Although I didn't know Kreuzstich until then, I was fascinated from the first moment. At that time, of course, I could not imagine it, but this magazine laid the foundation for my current manufactory!

Since that time I no longer put the embroidery needle out of my hand, whereby I have mainly made gifts, only a few things have remained with me. This was more for temporal reasons, because for example I worked on my "masterpiece", a large picture, for about 1 year, although of course I was not as practiced as I am today. But I can still remember the moment when I gave it away. This surprise and joy on the face of the recipient! For almost 20 years now, it has adorned the living room and is very often admired by guests.

In 2009, I read in a magazine about DaWanda, the online marketplace for handmade goods, and was immediately electrified. I registered a business and opened the shop and have been making great gifts and favorite pieces for my customers ever since.

I love to see motifs or lettering cross stitch by cross stitch created. For me, there is nothing more beautiful and this love for embroidery is of course also reflected in my products.

I get my inspiration from everyday life or from customer wishes.

What not everyone knows .....

There's a bit of a nerd in everyone, isn't there? For example, when hanging up laundry, each piece of laundry must be given the same colored staples. Otherwise it is too "restless" for me.
My favourite countries are Spain and Ireland.
I keep a lot of different notebooks: for ideas, list of awesome, for courses, diary and other things and have a weakness for office supplies (sticky notes, nice pens and folders...)
Without a thriller, Anja never goes to bed. And if it's two pages, without reading I can't fall asleep.
Television is usually a radio play for me, because I can't embroider and watch TV at the same time. That's why I prefer to "listen" to "let's Dance" (and dream of being there myself, but know that I would be eliminated from the 1st show), Cave of the Lions, and "Rizzoli and Isles" - although I like the books, as usual, better.
