Feature - Andi's Magical Needles

I'm not sure how I met Andi - but I purchased one of her Towel Toppers a while back - it was coffee themed :) Since then I've purchased another one in beige, so that it goes with all my towels I like to have in the kitchen. Also have some amazing red/white coffee coasters from Andi's shop, and a red/white bath puff. LOVE them all!! There is nothing like hand made items!

*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm from Connecticut (CT). I lived here most of my life. I'm a wife of (31 years) a mother 3 and a grandmother of 4. I have been crocheting since I was about 13 years old. My grandmother taught me..

*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
I got my name from a consignment craft shop I was in. I started my business to make a little extra money and people said I should sell things..

*What are 5 things you want people to think when they see your product?
  • Useful
  • eco-friendly
  • great quality
  • reasonably prices
  • nice shop

*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
Yarn is my weakness. It doesn't have to be any special kind. I like working with most of them.

*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I love being a grandma. I like camping, fishing and traveling.

*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
I love making bath puffs and washcloths. They work up nicely and people seem to like them.

*If you could give a piece of advice to a new shop - what would it be?
My advise to new shops is promote as much as possible. Don't give up to soon.
