I began the Joy Schoppe now 4 years ago (time is FLYING)... I started sewing 6 years ago when my husband & moved to the Country (aka middle of nowhere) and I needed a hobby. My love of the art grew quickly into an addiction & then had to become a business to cover costs of fabrics I loved.
I named the store after my mother's maiden name, Joy Schoppe, and thought it was perfect because it sounds like Joy Shop! I thought it was fate. She passed in 2003 from breast cancer. Not only do I think about her all the time with my Etsy shop I say her name out loud every day.
I am so proud that my scented eye pillows have been featured in two major magazines!!! The November 2011 Better Homes & Garden magazine - both print and on-line. And just recently my aroma therapy eye pillows were featured in the November 2014 Nails Magazine!!…
