Dutch Days Etsy Spotlight & Giveaway: Suze Loves DutchNeedle!


I love DutchNeedle, a fantastic shop filled with stuffed animals, decorations, garlands, etc.


There are classic and romantic designs and whimsical animals.


They are all beautiful and really well made.


The owner, Francis, knows what to do with a needle, the quality of her work is fantastic.


I've asked Francis a few questions to find out more about her and her shop:

When and how did your Etsy adventure start?

Unfortunately I lost my job because of the financial crisis. Suddenly I had a lot of free time and I started crafting. I opened my shop less than a year ago. The idea is to sell most of my creations on Etsy otherwise it will become very crowded in my house.


Where does your inspiration come from?

I get a lot of inspiration from browsing the Internet. I also like visiting stores and reading magazines.


Where did you learn how to craft?

I've learned to crochet when I was a child, at school. Later, when I was pregnant of my oldest daughter, I went to a sewing class. I practiced a lot while sewing my own baby clothes.


 What are you really proud of?

 I am proud of the fact that people from all parts of the world are interested in things that I have created. It is very nice to know that something of mine is cherished in for example a nursery on the other side of the world.


What can we expect from you in the future?

I hope I'll manage to keep plenty of inspiration and imagination to create many great items that a lot of people will enjoy.


I love the choice of materials and the color combinations.


Everything is so beautiful and it all looks perfect.


There's a great variety of items and I like that there's so much choice.


Check out this fantastic Etsy store.


Enjoy browsing...


And have fun shopping!
