Featured Shop of the Week: Sew Much Love Patterns

We have a great featured shop this week that I am excited to share with you. Sew Much Love Patterns is a very creative pattern shop, and also does custom crochet, knit, & sewing orders.

 Sew Much Love Patterns owner, April Hudson, has been crocheting for over 20 years. She says, "I really began to pick it back up during the pregnancy of my daughter 5 years ago. After the birth of my son 2 years ago I began selling finished items and started designing my own patterns. My children and family motivate and inspire me on a daily basis. My children love to model new designs and help me to name them. I also take custom sewing orders, this is my daughters favorite thing that I do! There are always new dresses in our house :)"  Like many small business owners, April says the most challenging part is finding a balance between work and family, especially during deadlines and family events.

April is a huge No Doubt and Black Eyed Peas fan. In her spare time, "I am reading every chance I get, especially anything Dean Koontz or Janet Evanovich. My family loves to travel, so I am always working on a knit or crochet project on the way. Although we are currently in the North, we are Southern through and through, soul food and sweet tea for us please." She would like her fans & customers to know, "although SML Patterns is mainly a pattern business, I am constantly taking custom crochet, knit, and sewing orders. I love custom work, especially when the customer tells me to go for it, make it as I would like!"

You can find Sew Much Love Patterns online at Facebook, Etsy, Craftsy, Ravelry, & Pinterest.
