I’m happy to welcome Froekus to the blog today, to show you her craft space!
“Two and a half years ago me and my family were on vacation. My husband and I talked about my job, how I wasn’t happy with it anymore, and what I could do to remedy it. He reminded me of my love for making things. When my kids were little I used to craft all the time and make clothes for them. This time around, I wanted to make something new from something old. There’s enough new stuff in the world already; I saw it as a challenge to turn used things into new things!”
“And now I have my own craft space. My son gave up the attic so me and my husband could use it as our bedroom, and we turned our master bedroom into a studio. I go thrifting a lot, looking for fabric I can re-use. People even bring it to me now! I hope to officially open my studio in January, so I can give workshops. Everyone who likes it can come over and craft, and I have since given my first crochet lesson!”
Thank you Froukje for showing us your amazing space!
If you’d like to show off your work space or craft studio, send me an email at winkieflash[at]gmail[dot]com. I’m planning on making this a recurring series! :)
