I met Amy of Ponder and Stitch in one of the Etsy Sellers chat rooms and asked her if I could feature her here on the Blog. She's a well known seller amongst the frequent chatters and someone I think ya'll should get to know as well!
Amy is from Woodstock, IL. If you've ever seen the movie Groundhog Day, you've seen her town! She recently purchased a home over 100 years old and has been busy with renovations, sounds like a project and a half (and I'm so glad it's her and not me!).
About a year and nine months ago Amy decided to teach herself how to sew. She got some books and hasn't looked back!
"If you've ever wanted to sew, it's never too late to start. I'm having a blast and didn't start til I was 30 years old. It's very frustrating at times, but it is so rewarding! I love being able to wear a piece of clothing I made myself."
Her favorite thing to make is the cuff bracelets, and she absolutely LOVES using vintage fabric. This is her favorite cuff right now:
Amy's goal is to have clothing in her Etsy shop this summer - once she gets a dress form she hopes to be able to accommodate all shapes and sizes.
I asked Amy for some interesting facts about her, and it's too silly to try and rewrite, so this is what I got: "I can't really think of any super-interesting things about myself. Hmm, maybe some things I can't do. I can't whistle. I can't snap my fingers. I can't swim. I can't eat cantaloupe- you couldn't PAY me to eat cantaloupe."
Be sure to check out Amy's shop at www.ponderandstitch.etsy.com OR, check out her blog here on Blogspot at: http://ponderandstitch.blogspot.com
Thank you so much Amy for allowing me to feature you on my blog and look forward to talking with you soon!
