Hi All! Hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did! I had some free time so I was able to get some painting done, and that always is a perk for me! I have nothing to show yet, as everything is still a work in progress, but hope to have things to show soon.
1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
Pioneer Loft is my name. It's a name I came up with for my business years ago. We have a small farm and there is a plaque on the house that says "PIONEER HOUSE", since the house was built so long ago (1860). We have a barn, and I always had a liking of lofts in barns, so I put the two words together from that. (Plus I hope to have a store in our barn & loft one day!)
2. How long have you been on Etsy?
Since August of 2009
3. What type of items do you offer?
Mostly primitives, but some cottage items, too. I sew, stencil, and tole paint and my hubby makes small furniture with a prim finish. I love to make dolls the most, but do a lot of things from old quilts like tablerunners, candle mats, pillows, check book covers, ornaments & more.
4. How long have you been crafting?
I started sewing in 7th grade (that would be 1968) and made most all my clothes for years. When I stayed home after having my daughter in 1982, I did stitching crafts, but I didn't sell anything I made until later in the 80's. I also took quilting classes in 1987, but have only made quilts for personal use.
5. Who or What inspires you?
God. (Also seeing other great handmade prims!)
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
Dolls & bears. I just love to create charater & life out of fabric.
7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
We have a website at http://www.pioneerloft.com and a blog at http://www.pioneerloft.blogspot.com I sell on ebay infrequently, but my user name is thepioneerloft there.
