Love what you do, be a Busy Bee!
My name, Debbie, means "Busy as a Bee" and that is exactly what I am. I used to have so many interests, and with all my moving around, I had to downsize. I kept what I really love to do which is quilting, cross stitching and crocheting. Sewing was something I did all my life from little on. My mother was a professional seamstress or tailor, and taught me her tricks of the trade on how to pay attention to detail. My grandmother taught me how to embroider and this brought us closer together. I remember sewing all those feedsack dishtowels and I still do that to this day.
I started my own alterations business in 2006 in Tennessee and it was flourishing as not many people sew anymore, or if they do, don't want to do the alterations. It's something I love to do and can do it from my home in my own time. One of my customers told me about his wife doing Etsy when he saw the items I had for sale in my sewing shop. I looked into it and never stopped since. Now I live in beautiful Wisconsin.
Since I had so many things in my 300 square foot sewing room, I decided to downsize again and sell some of my extra supplies. My other etsy store, BusyBeeButtonsNBows has all the buttons plus doll clothes I make.
Now we've moved to Wisconsin to be closer to his aging parents. My sewing room is somewhat smaller, so another reason to downsize. In my "spare" time I make as many things as I can to put in my shop. This has been an adventure and I intend to keep it going as long as I am able.
If you are a crafter, enjoy looking!
Quilting, Cross Stitching and Sewing are my favorite ways to spend my time.
Donna helps to contribute some of her supplies and vintage items. She lives here in Wisconsin and keeps very busy!
