Talented Artist - Armi Busch from Crochet Stitch Crafts- Interview & Giveaway

Crochet Stitch Crafts
About Armi Busch

Hello there,

Crocheting is something that I truly love to do. I learned how to crochet at a young age, but did not put an effort to pursue it at first due to life changes and priorities. Sending my youngest to college and being an emptynester for the school year, I now have more time to do what I … love the most - crochet. I love to crochet doilies, table toppers, table runners, hats, mittens, scarves, boot cuffs. I am hoping to do more of crochet crafts in the future.

Interview

1) Can you tell our readers a bit about yourself?

I am married with two daughters. I am self-employed flower sales representative. I have an 8 year old yorkie named Brutis. My other hobbies are cross stitching and gardening.


2) What’s the inspiration behind your work?

My floral doilies and bookmarks are inspired by the flowers I grow around my house.


3) Where did you learn how to crochet?

I learned basic crochet in elementary school and continued to teach myself different techniques through video tutorials.


4) What does your work place look like?

Since I work from home, I keep my supplies in my office and crochet anywhere around my house that is comfortable.


5) You make bookish items, where does your love for books come from?

My favorite author is Jane Austen.


6) Can you tell a bit more about how you started your store?

I started by making hats and scarves for family and friends. Since they all really liked what I made, they always suggested I should sell my crocheted items. It was a good side business to have when I’m not working in floral sales.


7) Your bookmarks have plenty of different shapes and designs, how did you get the idea to offer such a great range and variety?

Since bookmarks take a lot less time to make than my larger doilies, I have more time to make a variety of designs while also trying new and fun patterns.


8) What are your favorite colors and how do you choose when you start a new project?

I love using pastels. I base my color selection on the supplies I have and I take inspiration from my flower garden.


9) You’re constantly learning new techniques, where do you find the most fascinating ones and what’s the next thing you’re teaching yourself?

Most of the techniques I learn are from crochet patterns. Currently I’m learning about incorporating different textures into my projects.


10) What are your plans for the future?

I plan to continue to crochet and grow my business. I also hope to teach crochet to the younger generation and to write and publish my own design.
