Stitch Knit - Creating Art With Yarn!

American Girl Doll Sweater
I have rarely seen variety in an Etsy shop like I found in StitchKnit's shop! You will find everything from doll clothing to socks to little girls' dresses and lots of thing in between! Her items are made using different crafting techniques that include knitting, crocheting and sewing.

Sue Williams, the very talented and sweet designer and creator behind StitchKnit's fabulous items has this to say about her crafting and Etsy experience:

"I opened an Etsy account a few years ago but never put anything in the shop, as I was too busy caring for my mom. The thought of doing something with my creations was always simmering away in the back of my mind. And, occasionally, someone else would tell me I should share my things somehow. When my mom got back on her feet, and I had some extra time, I jumped in the deep end and opened on Dec 26, 2010 with a handful of items that I had used in displays in our little town for advertising the knitting & crochet classes I was teaching for the parks & rec department.

Because the items were samples of techniques, they were all over the map. Scarves, shawls, baby clothing, hats and purses. I have gravitated towards toddler and baby items as I've added more things to the shop. I mention on my profile my addiction to ruffles, ribbons, lace and bows - I add them to almost everything! I'm thinking that this must be because there were no little girls anywhere in our family, just lots of boys! Apparently, I never got my fill of frilly, ruffly girly things!

I try very hard to make sure all of my items are beautiful, well made, and at the same time useful. For example, I just don't see the point in making baby items that aren't washable!

I have had a home business for decades; designing clothes & costumes and altering almost anything. This just seems to fit with my Etsy shop. I get to work full time at home with all sorts of things I love. I can't imagine anything more fun and less like work!"

I  can personally attest to the quality and beauty of the carefully handcrafted items in StitchKnit's shop. I own one of her American Girl doll sweaters and it is truly amazing! The workmanship is top-notch and as a knitter myself, I know just how much time and love went into making such a tiny little work of art! Sue absolutely loves to create custom items for her customers and is an excellent communicator, so you will always know exactly what she will be creating for you!
