After 40 years, I finally opened my shop

After 40 years of crafting, my daughter Allie gave me the push I needed to finally start doing what I love. It's about time!

When I turned 60, I set out to try 60 new things. One of those things was crochet, as despite knitting and sewing for decades, I never managed to master crochet. Eventually I got the hang of it and thought about the 59 other things I could try. That's when Allie helped me open an Etsy account. I've built this shop ever since and learned a lot along the way. I'm set to retire in the spring of 2020, and even if it's a little late, it means I'll finally be doing this full time!

As a kid, my mum used to make me and my twin sister dresses. I learned a lot from her, and made my own clothes for years, then eventually doing the same for my daughter, customising clothes and painting jeans during the summer holidays. Some years the home making was slow, but it was always there, in the background. Every so often I'd be hemming a dress for a friend or taking in a shirt, and when I became a great aunt, it all revived. I always make things for the kids every time I see them, which means I'm greeted with "What have you made us this time, Aunty Rose?" Well kids, I'm making a lot now.
