Featured Artist: JCs Sewing Room on Etsy!

JCs Sewing Room on Etsy specializes in handmade walker and wheelchair accessory items to give you a helping hand.
Please tell us a little about yourself.

I was born and raised in Columbus Ohio, but now live in South Florida.  My grandmother was a quilter and did lovely hand embroidery.  She taught me how, which eventually led to sewing and other crafts.   I actually won an award in high school for a dress I made for myself.

What inspires you to create your work?

When I see a need, I try to fill it.  Trying to help others during difficult times has always given me a great inner joy.

What is your favorite thing to make/sell?

Currently I’ve been making what I call Helping Hand Pocket Pouches.  They’re medium size tote bags that hang on walkers or wheelchairs.  They hold a variety of objects that free the users hands to operate the walker safely.  I love using bright and colorful prints.  They take that “utilitarian” feel away.

What is the best part about being a Christian seller?

I worked in the corporate world for many years.  I hated the way employees were treated and the practices of management towards the business.  Being a Christian seller, I can be sure that Christ is the center of my motives and profits.

Why do you do what you do?

I believe God gave me the talent of sewing and crafting.  To use it to help others and to help with the income of the household.

What are your hobbies?

I love to garden and take care of the yard.  Now that I no longer have to punch a time clock, I can spend more time planting and nurturing, instead of just maintaining.

What is your favorite book/movie/music?

My favorite book would have to be the Bible.  As far as movies, I tend to gravitate toward sci-fi and action films.

What is one of your most well-loved Bible verses?

I hold Proverbs 31 close to my heart.  Being a good wife and partner is very important to me.
