Friday Feature

Deciding who to feature every Friday is always agonizing for me. I am always torn between my Etsy team and friends so I thought how could I randomly do this and be fair. Not to feature more of one team or the other. So I decided I'm going to see who Hearted (or favorited) my items on Etsy! It may or may not be a team member.

Today's feature is for the last person to favorite my apple plate pictured at the bottom of the page. That person is....drum roll please!!!!!

The Farmer's Attic!!!!!  (click the name to go to her shop.  Co-incidentally she is a member of my Old Farmhouse Gathering Team. (glad to see my team members like my work! LOL) The quilted wallhanging to the right is my favorite in her shop. So sit back and read my interview with her.

Q What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
FA: Farmers Attic. My husband was the one who felt that the name of our shop should be called “The Farmer’s Attic”.

Q. How long have you been on Etsy?
FA: Since December 20, 2007 but only really started adding items to the shop in October, 2009.

Q.. What type of items do you offer?
FA: We have a variety of items from home d├ęcor, primitives, vintage, fabric, quilts, pincushions, holiday, seasonal, handbags, heirloom items, etc.

Q. How long have you been crafting?
FA: I think I have been crafting all of my life. I learned a lot of sewing at a very early age by watching a dear lady sew clothing and curtains while she babysat me over the summer months. I also taught myself to knit in the car after visiting and watching a relative in North Carolina. On the way home to New Jersey, I had two rattail combs and some yarn that she gave me and I learned to knit during the long car ride home. I think I was about 9 or 10 at the time (I’m now 51!)

Q. Who or What inspires you?
FA: Fabric, fabric, fabric. I love the textures, colors, feel and flow. Also, lots of magazines and books (I’m a book hog!) and now I have the internet!!!!!!!!!

Q. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
FA: I love my quilts. With all the beautiful designs from traditional to contemporary, there’s something for everyone. Techniques are always changing which makes the art fun and exciting.

Q. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
FA: My webstore went live in September, 2009 and can be found at I don’t yet have an Ebay store but I do sell under my username: thefarmersattic. I’m also fairly new to the blogging world and I think I’m addicted J You can find me at
