Sensational Shop Saturday - Knitting Madness

31 Days of Sensational Shops went so well that Sensational Shop Saturday was created to continue to feature awesome handmade shops!

Today's Sensational Shop is Knitting Madness - run by Mandy Garcia!

Tell us about you - the creator!

I am a 30-year-old mother of three wonderful girls. I am a stay at home mom. I learned how to crochet from my grandmother she taught my the basics I taught my self the rest. I also taught myself how to knit with the looms first and needles after. I started my business to share what I love to do with others. When you love what you do you never work a day in your life is how I really feel about it.

Describe your shop and what you sell

My shop is simple crochet and knitted items for every one. I make custom hats for all ages from new born to adult. I make photo props for photography and as baby gifts for baby showers. I have scarves and hooded scarves (scoodies), also make fingerless gloves. I make head bands for all ages. I make cozies for cans, water bottles, and coffee cups/mugs.

What is your favorite item to make? Why?

I really love making it all. Some of the stuff I have the most fun with is the hats all the fun things I have done with them; Ninja turtles, Mickey and Minnie, Hello Kitty inspired, Minions, and the list goes on! Those have just been some of the most popular next to Batman.

How and when did you start your business?

I started my business February 29th 2012 on Facebook after thinking about how much I hated working for some one and said "Hey why don't I see if I can put what I do to use and sell what I make?" I love doing it so why not?

Where can buyers find you?
