My next feature comes all the way from Estonia, Europe! Her name is Anniki, and her shop is Annlee Designs.
Knitting and crocheting have been a passion of Anniki's since she was a child, so it's no wonder that her shop sells *gasp* knitted and crocheted items for adults and children. She has many different items--hats, shrugs, gloves--all beautifully and carefully handmade.
Anniki's mission is to show that knitting can be fun and elegant; to take her work to the next level and prove that traditional crafting is still alive and has a suitable place in the modern world. Her shop is still fairly new, but she's working on perfecting it--she promotes anywhere she sees an opportunity. Her shop is very customer-oriented; a satisfied buyer is the best promotional tool!
Apart from crocheting, Anniki writes (both for fun and as her profession; she's writing a book that will be published in Estonia next year!), swims, sails, and travels. She also (like me) collects shoes; she currently has about 70 pairs! Lucky, lucky girl.
If you would like to know more about Anniki, she has a blog here--titled appropriately "Addicted to Crafts".
