About Me and My Shop

I started out making gifts for family and friends , these items were well received and I was encouraged to offer my items to others.
I started out offering my items at craft shows, and several shop keepers were interested in buying my items for local tourist shops. I did supply them for a while and it was fun to see my items in these shops. It was however not very profitable for me as much as I enjoyed seeing them. In order for them to sell I had to sell to them at a cost barely covering my materials. It got to be a chore rather than a pleasure. I let them sell out and then opened my shop on ETSY.
I enjoy taking my time and making my items one at a time. I would never go back to any other way. I like to think I am speaking to each customer one to one when I list my items and put in descriptions.
Anyone is very welcome to contact me with any question you have about myself or my handmade items.
2015 Within this last year I had a new project. My great granddaughter was interested in learning how to sew. I baby sat her when she was so little she would sit on my lap while I sewed and I would let her put the needle down, presser foot up and down, choose some stitch patterns and the like. She did so well I bought her a sewing machine for her 10th birthday. She makes pillows , etc all by herself and fell in love with making small art quilts of her own design, and she loves free motion quilting on them.
I am the proudest of this more than any item I have created.
Update September 2015. I now have another beautiful great granddaughter . So trying out my crochet hats on her.
2017 I am in love with making hats. Making more and more for my shop.
I have a new model I call Gloria, she works for free, except for the bit of space she takes up in my studio. She never complains and is always available.
I also enjoy posting photos of happy customers wearing their hats. I always ask permission before using them , and so far all have said yes.
Life is good, I love what I do.

    I love creating and sharing what I make. My selling here on ETSY fits this perfect. It makes it a fun way to present my items.
