Business Name: Virtue Knits
Shop Link: www.virtueknits.etsy.com
What do you create/sell? I sell handknit scarves, hats, wraps, purses, cuffs and shawls for women and girls. Each item that I create is unique and if I get a chance to see my customer, I make an effort to get the person's essence and it design the item just for them.
How did you get started and why? I got started about 5 years ago after my sister and I watched an episode of Oprah about women starting small businesses. Our goal was to be stay at home mom's. My sister ended up giving the business over to me because it became too time consuming. I have been running the business myself for the past four years.
What do you love most about owning your own business? I love the ability to create. I love create something that is completely different from the last thing that I created. I enjoy allowing my creative juices to flow.
What are some interesting/fun facts about yourself? I write music and play the guitar. I have been so busy and hadn't gotten a chance to play in about a month. Last night I was able to play and ended up playing for over an hour. I wrote in my journal that it was like seeing an old friend. I had missed playing the guitar, like I had missed seeing a my best friend.
