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.
