It is Sunday, and that means its time for a new featured shop! This week we're featuring Simply Stitched by Sheri Anne, a talented crocheter. All of her items are "hand made with extra love and care."
Sheri Anne started crocheting about 6 months ago when she retired(not by choice) due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sheri describes, "I found it to be a new passion of mine. I was taught to crochet back when I was 10 by my father, put my needles away when I was 19, after the birth of my first daughter. I then picked them back up and found that writing patterns was also a new passion.
I think the idea of having a granddaughter one day motivates and inspires me. I love designing little dresses and sweaters. I keep creating because I love the idea of keeping my hands active and because I love the outcome of what a piece of string can accomplish."
I asked Sheri to describe the challenges she faces as a small business owner, and she explained, "The most challenging thing about having my own business is getting my name out there. There is slot of creative and beautiful items out there. Finding something unique is also a challenge. One day I will find my little niche."
Sheri likes the color pink, and the combo of pink & black. Her favorite way to relax is crocheting. " I find that it helps me to drown out the world and free my mind."
Sheri would like her fans to know "that I can be really creative and can make almost anything. i love to do custom orders because it gives me the chance to be creative through someone else and say WOW will you look at that!!"
You can find Sheri's beautiful work on her website, Facebook page, Craftsy pattern shop, and Etsy store. Sheri is giving one lucky fan the "Must Be A Lady" fingerless glove pattern.
