Now let's meet Amy and discover her Etsy shop, Heart of Autumn
What is your first creative memory?
My first creative memory is of my Gram crocheting. I never could pick it up from her as she was right handed and I'm left, but I got my crafting bug from her. She would make quilts the traditional way - patchwork from scraps and a heavy blanket instead of the batting we use today. No wonder I started quilting.
What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?
I knew of Etsy for a couple of months and would just linger around the wonderful shops, dreaming of the time when I would have my own. I joined in order to purchase a print from Nudes and Shoes. A couple months after that I found the courage to open my own shop.
How did you come up with your shop name?
Heart of Autumn stems from being born on the fall equinox, and my Dad wanting to name me Autumn. It became my creative alter ego, and I sign all of my work with a heart and Autumn.
Describe what creations you have in your shop.
I love art quilts and creating pictures with fabric. I'm expanding to include media holders, and adding different styles of bags too.
What inspires you?
My inspiration has to do with magic, fantasy, and nature, and you'll see all of those elements reflected in my work.
What do you listen to or watch while creating?
I love to listen to Celtic music when I create, and Lorena McKennit is a favorite.
