My name is Susi. Welcome to my shop, Heartstrings (formerly Lee Crochet, of Lee Photography & Crochet, LLC)! You will find organic, vintage-inspired prop/gift clothing and accessories here in my little shop. I knit (or crochet or sew) each item by hand, with an abundance of love. Each piece is created paying close attention to detail. I strive to offer the best that I can.
I hope you can find something that you're looking for. If you have any questions, or if you'd like to place a unique, custom order, please use the Contact tab to touch base with me. I usually respond within 24-48 business hours.
Take a look around. Thank you for stopping in! ♡♡♡
What's in a Name
Named in part after my grandmother, Lee Crochet grew from a simple love of crocheting (which was taught to me by my mom). A few custom order requests from family and friends, and a little nudge to open an Etsy shop, here I am, several years later... knitting. And now. With a re-brand. Lots of changes have been made over the last few years. Crocheting switched to teaching myself the art of knitting (a slow, tedious art, at that). This was in part to keep up with what is in style; but I also had a strong desire to learn this beautiful craft. I have always loved the look of knitting. And then, finally, Lee Crochet turned into Heartstrings.
Heartstrings has become a successful little business that has blossomed from a love for a hobby, lots of hard work, amazing customers, supportive family and friends, and an eagerness to learn and grow. Thank you to all who have been with me through the years, in some way.
plural noun: heartstrings
-used in reference to one's deepest feelings of love or compassion.
I love what I do. I love my customers. I love knitting. I love creating. I love seeing my completed creations on all of those sweet, tiny new babies. It is all such a joy.
I also feel it is a sort-of play on words. One strand of yarn (strings) is turned into something I created with a lot of love (from the heart). 💛
One of my greatest joys is my business. In a way, it is like my baby. 🌿
