Cuddles & Stitches has been a Collaborator with Hopespiration since June 2017. Shruti has been kind enough to respond to our interview questions below:
What do you do? I make lots of different things. Handbags, wallets, quilted mug rugs and cup sleeves, embroidery, cross stitch, small knitted and crocheted items. I also recently learnt to weave.
How long have you been doing this? Ever since I can remember... probably started at age 5 and accumulated different skills as I went along. I've been selling my creations since 2012.
Tell us what got you started! I've always been fascinated with how things are made, and if I can learn to make it. Creativity is my passion and self-expression. I'm always looking for something else to learn.
What inspires you? Colours and textures in nature inspire me. I love the feel of handmade items, the slight imperfections and the variations. I love making custom items for this reason as well.... every item is unique in its own way, and I never tire of it.
What's the best way to reach you? Email is best. I try to respond within 24 hours - I am a stay at home mom, so sometimes I don't check my email till the end of the day.
