Feature Friday With Lucy of The Farmer's Attic

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
 
 Farmers Attic. My husband was the one who felt that the name of our shop should be called “The Farmer’s Attic”.
2. How long have you been on Etsy?
 
Since December 20, 2007 but only really started adding items to the shop in October, 2009.
3. What type of items do you offer?
We have a variety of items from home décor, primitives, vintage, fabric, quilts, pincushions, holiday, seasonal, handbags, heirloom items, etc.
4. How long have you been crafting?
 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 rat tail 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.
5. Who or What inspires you?
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!
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
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.
 7. Other places where you can be found?
Great to get to know Lucy a bit more! 
She is the Old Farmhouse Gathering's Captain were she does a wonderful job leading our team.
