Spotlight Tuesday: Mama Pear’s Knits!

It’s Spotlight Monday…er…Tuesday!

Every Monday (again – Tuesday), I feature a different vendor  (usually photography-related) on my blog!  I’ll share a little bit about the business itself and the products/service it offers.  And this is the sweet part…..each of these businesses have shown huge generosity by either giving away a product, offering a discount on their services, or BOTH!

Mama Pear’s Knits

UPDATE: WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!  ***AMY MIZE*** – please contact Mama Pear’s Knits to let her know which hat you would like!  Congratulations!!!

So I have this talented friend, Jen.  She has 3 adorable children and a heart of gold.  Today, I want to introduce you to her knitting business – Mama Pear’s Knits, which has blossomed over the last year!  Here’s a little bit of what Jen had to say about her business…

“I started Mama Pear’s knits after a few friends and family members recommended that I should start selling what I make instead of just making gifts for Christmas. At first the thought was too daunting to even consider, but after a while of knitting and having people ask me to make them items, I decided it might be a good idea to try.  So, Mama Pear’s Knits was born and I have loved the opportunity to learn more knit/crochet techniques and to get to know many other vendors in the same realm.  One of the challenges I gave myself as a new business owner was to start spinning my own yarn to make higher quality items without breaking the budget.  I desire to give my customers plenty of options and details regarding which fibers/yarns are more budget friendly while still are of a good quality. I am a homemaker, mother of 3 wonderful kiddies and a wife to an amazing man who has been my support and encouragement through the ups and downs of starting a new business.  It’s been a wonderful start so far and I am looking forward to seeing how Mama Pear’s Knits develops.”

Jen has graciously offered a giveaway to my readers today!  The winner can choose their favorite of the following three hats!
