Who's New Tuesday: Colour Addiction

Let's meet another new WEST member today, Cindy Klassen

Where are you from?
I am from Altona, Manitoba

What is your Etsy shop called?
Colour Addiction

When did you start your shop?
I started my shop on April 1, 2013

What made you decide to create an Etsy shop?
I joined Etsy to see what would happen, kind of on a whim.  My daughters and I had started sewing play tents the summer of 2012 and selling them at markets and with Etsy we had no idea what would happen but we wanted to see who else could enjoy the tents.  I'm so glad we took the chance.

What do you sell?
We sell play tents made from mostly reclaimed fabrics and some new fabrics.  The tents can be hung from a tree for outside or a hook for indoors or set up with a center pole.

What is your favorite item to make?
My favorite tent to make is the Sari tent.  When I find an amazing sari fabric at the thrift shop I feel like I've found treasure.

What is your long-term goal?
I am so full of ideas right now, I have tent ideas and tent accessory ideas and the girls have ideas, so our goal for now is to make more items available in our shop and of course fill more peoples lives with beauty and colour.
