Tell us about your business.My business is hands on. It is me. My work is custom. I take pride in my creativity in designing hand-knit baby booties, adult slippers and baby knits. This all started with a knitting ministry at church. For the past 10 years, the women in the ministry, have been getting together every Tuesday night making hand-knit baby ensembles for single mothers all donated yarn and all donated time. Each year in Feburary we put together not only the hand-knit items, we include all store bought items needed for a newborn. (Diaper bag, diapers, clothing, feeding bottles, etc.) We make over 100 of the gift packages every year. Each gift bag has a hand knit, baby sweater, hat, blanket. Anyway, besides all the donated knitting, I decided to start making my own knitting items for sale. Since the baby items are sweet, and the gratification is of making them is almost instant. That's why I make the booties and slippers.
What makes your business stand out?The creativity of my hand-knit items.
What's the best business advice you've received?Don't ever give up.
