Name: Cathy Ziegele
Shop name: The Daily Pincushion
How long on Etsy: Started in March 2008
Who (or what) is an inspiration for your pincushions? For my first pincushion it was a cupcake!
How did you start making them? Selling on etsy? I was a buyer on etsy and wanted to make cupcakes to sell. I saw some amazing work with felt and changed course and opened The Daily Pincushion.
Do you sew for yourself? I don’t make clothes anymore. I was a professional chef for 30 years, so sewing was a hobby I really enjoyed. I have embroidered denim jackets in the 70’s, made quilts in the 80s… I loved to make outfits for my stuffed bears. I recently sold a collection of bear outfits on my etsy site. I still make the occasional felt outfit for whoever needs an update.
Want to win this pincushion? You just have to answer the following question:
Once upon a time hankies were a part of the wardrobe. Do you think you could ever get used to carrying one around? Do you already?
Each giveaway is open for twenty-four hours from the time of posting. Please only post one comment in each thread. Winners will be announced each Monday in April. Winners can only win once but are encouraged to answer all the questions!
