Personalized Embroidered Pendant

Friend Cross Stitch Sampler
Lorrie of Wits End Design opened her Etsy shop in Feb. '09 It was an outlet to engage her creative side while doing office work full time. She eventually left her job and began to dedicate her time to making her shop more than just a hobby.  She initially started selling just her own cross stitch projects, towels, bibs and samplers.

Friends For Life - Cross Stitch Pattern

Since she was also a thrifter at heart, she added needlepoint kits and patterns to her Etsy shop that she would pick up at thrift shops.

Evening Gown with Scarf and Jacket

It wasn't long before she also began selling sewing patterns too.  Here is just one of many patterns available in the Wits End Design Etsy shop.  Take a look at her Sewing Pattern/Notions section here.  She has quite an extensive selection of patterns available.

Her love of vintage also found it 's way into her shop in the Vintage Corner section.

Small Fruit Themed Plates

Lorrie says "Every once in a while I find a real nugget that I can add there".

Check out Lorrie's Etsy shop at Wits End Design.
She currently has about 250 items in her shop and sells mostly to other crafters and those looking for home accents or gifts. Follow her facebook page at Wits End Design facebook page.
