Can you sum yourself up in three sentences? Give it a go!
*I love to be creative. *I never met a piece of fabric I could not love. *I find great fulfillment in being able to use my creative juices to make something of lasting value, especially something that represents memories of a loved one.*
Tell us about what you sell:
I sell all kinds of quilted items, but my main focus is Memory Quilts and Pillows. This is the most rewarding. It is all custom work, of course, but I get to know a little something about the people I design for, and I derive great satisfaction in knowing that I have given them something to cherish.
What is your favorite thing about creating?
Wow. I eat, sleep and breathe creating, I think. I even have to get my mind to shut down at bedtime because I am still envisioning something I want to do tomorrow. I guess I would have to say that for me it is a little like giving birth. I enjoy the whole process of hearing what my customer wants, deciding on the right layout and style, fabrics and any other materials, all the way up to the joy of finally seeing the finished product.
Where do you find your inspiration?
My journey with my quilting is a pretty spiritual one actually. My inspiration comes from truly wanting to bless my customers with a keepsake treasure that will comfort them and bring them joy. Every quilt is new – completely different from any other – and that is because every customer is unique.
Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Do what you love and love what you do. Don’t let yourself wallow in discouragement if your sales are not as high as someone else’s. I did a lot of different things in the sewing and craft world before I landed on Memory Quilts. I’m in a very small niche of a market, but I finally know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be, and it suits me.
