American Made Since 2009

I design and crochet fashion accessories. Its my goal to make hip and fashionable items that will turn heads and spice up your wardrobe.

Tell us about your business.

From the first time I learned how to crochet I was hooked ~ pun intended! My business started as a hobby, hence the name! I found that there are people who love handmade items just as much as I do. The customers I serve have an admiration for the handmade movement. They purchase items that they hope will become keepsakes for their children. I am constantly sketching ideas. There never seems to be enough time to make everything I have in mind. Every year my product line grows and I find myself more in love with making products for my customers. I would love to make my business a full time venture. I see myself opening a small boutique where customers would have the opportunity to touch and feel the wonderful textures of the items I create. I am so grateful for the opportunity to do the thing I love and have great faith that the handmade movement is not going anywhere. I look forward to teaching my kids my trade and creating new generations of artisans.

What's the best business advice you've received?

"Do what you love." Life is full of things we HAVE to do. When it comes to running a business, do what you love. Make it yours completely. Enjoy the experience. I love nothing more than having an outlet to let my creativity run rampant!
