About YettaForever

Sales 20
On Etsy since 2019

My original idea that was to become Yetta Forever is the direct result of my arms. They're just too long. So one Fall as I contemplated putting on another shirt that wasn't quite long enough to fully cover my wrists, I thought, "I could just add fingerless gloves to that shirt". And then my brain exploded with a million ideas. From skirts to jackets to purses I knew I had to get to a thrift store so I could start experimenting.
When I shop at the thrift store I do so with some ideas of what to look for but also with a mind open to the possibilities within. I'm in love with the process, that each piece is unique and a unique challenge. I concentrated in Printmaking as a Fine Art major in college. There, I fell in love with the art of process. After graduation I learned how to crochet and knit and fell in love again. For years I played with knitting and crocheting but didn't quite find my passion until I discovered this process of upcycling.
I've named my shop after my Great Grandmother Yetta, but also because my last name is Ettinger. It is a tribute to both families.

    I’ve been fascinated with fiber arts since I was 10. My work gets me up in the morning. It gives my life meaning!
