Stitch Silly: Tell me a little about yourself.
Sew Shaw: I live in Hertfordshire, England with my husband and baby son. I have been sewing since I was 5, and have been making stuff ever since.
SS: How did you get started with Etsy?
SeW: I was trying to think of ways to make an income while I am at home with my son, and friends had often said I should sell my creations. Etsy seemed the perfect way to start out.
SS: What is your favorite part of being your own boss?
SeW: I love being able to fit in my sewing round my son, working for myself I can be flexible to fit in with the needs of my family.
SS: What are your 2 favorite products in your shop?
SeW: I love Sean the shark, because he is quite realistic, but still cuddly.
I also am very fond of my mini teds, I enjoy making them in all different colours.
SS: What is your greatest success since joining Etsy?
SeW: Making sales of course! I also have made loads of lovely friends.
SS:What do you most want to improve?
SeW: I want to learn to take fabulous photos! I am getting better, but some of my earlier attempts need a bit of work!
SS: What is your ultimate goal for your Etsy shop?
SeW: I would like to make enough sales to keep me busy all year round.
SS: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
SeW: Interesting...I have no idea, as we do not have tootsie pops here. I think it would take several, though.
