"The Sewing Granny", A Shop Worth Visiting

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

I always though that handmade baby items were the greatest. They are just so gorgeous and one of a kind. Same for household items and apparel. I love it when I know I have a piece made really to my liking and personal style... it spells uniqueness. Now that's where my friend Mona comes in. And where I come in to talk to you about her wonderful store called The Sewing Granny. She dedicates herself into making handmade baby items, hand quilted quilts, placemats, potholders and infinity scarves. I could go on and on about her business but I'll let her tell you all about herself and her shop through this interview I had with her.

Q - For those who don't know you, please introduce yourself to all the readers.
A - My name is Mona... I am a grandmother to 2 boys - 10 years and 18 months and we are expecting another grandchild late May. I work at a Correctional Center... and love it.
I started to hand quilt baby panels to help pass the night shifts and from there is expanded to many different creations. I love to sew... hence my shop name.. the 2 passions of my life... sewing and being a grandmother.

Q - You have a shop on Etsy called Sewing Granny. What kind of items do you sell?
A - I sell hand quilted baby quilts, wallhangings, kitchen items ( potholders, oven mitt sets, placemats, runners etc) and lots of baby bibs. Lately I have gotten into making Infinity scarfs.

Q - From getting to know you and your business, I have noticed that you sell very unique items and handmade also. Can people ask you for special orders, something in particular they would like you to make for them?
A - Anything I make can be custom made... I love to work with my customers to make them what they want. Everyone has their own color, style and theme.

Q - Mona, what passions do you cherish in your life?
A - My life passions is my family... I want to do all I can to help them and make their lives easier and happier! My family is everything to me.. I have one son and he is my world!My goal in the future is to have my own shop right here attached to my home with a studio in the back to do my sewing while I wait for my customers.

Q - Are there any items in your shop that you are particularly proud of or that are your favorites?
A - I love every thing in my shop that is why I keep making it.. but right now the scarfs are fun for me.

Q - If there was one thing you could tell your the readers to promote your shop, what would it be?
A - I would have them tell everyone that I love to do custom orders, I would work with them to create the right item for them... we all have our likes, dislikes or different styles and I want them to be happy with my handmade creations.

Q - Do you ship internationally and what kind of payments do you accept?
A - I will ship anywheres. I accept Paypal only!

Q - If people want to visit your store, follow you or get in contact with you, where can they find you?
A - People can contact visit my shop here or contact me at my email address sewinggranny@gmail.com. They can also follow me on my Pinterest Page or my Twitter Page.
