1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’ve been sewing for many years, encouraged by many wonderful women in my life, especially my grandma, who was a great seamstress for her family. As busy as life gets, I just can’t NOT sew. I started my little sewing “business” called eamylove, to share my handmade accessories, original patterns and custom works. The name is taken from my maiden name. I added an “e” to Amy Love for my first “e”-mail address.
2. What are your favorite projects to design?
I really love making new pillows and pincushions. Both of these projects can be made to fit a variety of moods. They can be plain or fancy, modern or traditional. Translation: I can’t decide what my style is!
3. What is your favorite thing you have made for yourself? For someone else?
My Signature Style pillow, is my most favorite thing that I made just for ME! I tried to put together a pillow with all of my favorite colors, fabrics, and styles, and I loved the result. For my sister I created a camera bag that I thought was very beautiful, with lots of great details. It was one-of-a-kind, just made for a unique and lovely person.
4. What is your favorite season/holiday to decorate for?
Christmas is my most loved holiday. This year I finally admitted to myself that I almost never sew in the month of December, so all year long, I’ve been creating Christmas-y items. This year, I didn’t stress about making sweet new holiday projects…they were done already!
5. Any other interests or hobbies?
I love baseball and music, and I’ve been thankful to see our boys participate in both of these interests.
6. Do you have a favorite quote?
“Millions long for immortality but don’t know what to do on a rainy afternoon.”
