What is your shop name and what is the significance?
Stitch To Stitch -- I love to sew, but for years I couldn't because it gave me horrible headaches. After brain surgery in 2009 I was finally able to sew again! And to celebrate my new lease on life, I decided to take my love one step further than a hobby. The shop name is a play on words about how surgery gave me the ability to sew again.
What do you love about Idaho?
All the great things to do outdoors.
Name one thing you would suggest people do when they come to visit the state?
See as much as you can! I never knew Idaho had such gorgeous landscapes.
Tell us a random fact about yourself.
I met my husband when we were on a study abroad trip to Nepal!
What do you do to relax?
Play in the garden.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
Italy. My husband has been there a couple of times for work and I've never been able to go with him.
Currently, what is your favorite shop item?
How did you become interested in your craft?
On a whim, my husband bought me a sewing machine just after we were married and I instantly fell in love.
What do you enjoy about the creative process?
I love seeing all of the pieces come together into something beautiful.
Any suggestions for those interested in selling their handmade items or vintage finds?
Believe in yourself and make the leap! You'll never know how successful you can be if you never try.
