Member Monday: Meet...

Melissa Hedger!  Also know on the web as Krafty Mommy!

1.  Introduce yourself:

My name is Melissa Hedger and I live in Fort Worth with my husband and daughter.  I am a mother's day out director during the week, and and embroiderer/seamstress on the evenings and weekends.

2.  What do you primarily create?  What are some of your favorite mediums?

I enjoy making baby items; blankets, bibs, burp cloths and diaper clutches.  I also enjoy making clothing for kids too.  I make appliqued items as well.  I am moving toward making more Mommy items too.  Business card holders, yoga bags, handmade tote bags, and iPod carrying cases.

I love soft fabrics; flannel, milky, and cottons.

3.  Is there an art or craft you are interested in learning?

I would love to learn how to crochet.  I knit, but have never crocheted.

5.  Tell us what being a member of Etsy Fort Worth means to you.

Etsy Fort Worth means that I am a part of a select group of crafters.  I have been chosen to be in a group of extremely talented crafters.   It is an honor to me to be a part of Etsy Fort Worth.

My greatest achievement in my Krafty Mommy career, is my beautiful 6 needle embroidery machine.  I worked so hard to be able to save money to buy that machine.  It has helped my turn around time so much. 

I love what I do, I just wish I could work on it all the time.

You can find Melissa on the web at www.kraftymommy.com, or contact her at kraftymommy@gmail.com

Members are given a list of questions along with a request to provide what ever information they feel comfortable giving.  Each interview is based on that individual members response. 

Thank you for stopping in to meet our members!  Have a Happy Monday all.
