1. When did you get started sewing and creating? Who taught you?

I started sewing when I was 8, but only little shirts for my dolls, and I made a pair of boxers in hight school. But, I really started sewing about a year ago.

2. When did you start selling your designs on eBay? Do you sell anywhere else besides eBay, if so where? (example, web site, local boutique) What did you do before eBay?

I started selling my items on Ebay about 8 or 9 months ago. I sell to family and friends on the side...I hope to open up a boutique soon here in town.

2a. Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay. Do you have a picture? What was it and what did it sell for?

I think the first outfit I sold on Ebay was a little lounge set. I do have a photo of it and I cant remember what it sold for...not much though. And, yes I still have a picture of it.

3. How did you decide upon your name .

It is kinda strange....well, o.k. it is really strange. My son Gavin was dancing down the hall and singing "Poop and the Wiggily Pop" and I called him over to ask him what he tought of an outfit I had made him and he blurted out "Wiggily Pop" I was thinking of a name at the time...and that little phrase just worked.

4. Do you belong to any boutique group and if so which one? How did you get started in that group? What do you like most about your particular group?

I belong to SBA Boutique(Southern Belle Apparel) The group Moderator Mary Thornton invited me to join. I love my group!! We are like a big family. Mary calls everyone in the group to chat about launches and things we have going on in the group...but, we also talk about everyday things like our kids or if we are just feeling down.

5. What is your favorite thing to create? (example: vintage style dresses, totes, overalls, etc) Why?

I love to make OOAK sets. Putting scrap fabric together to create something just is so neat for me. I took art lessons growing up and I think that has also helped with the OOAK abstract sets I do.

6. What are your favorite types of fabrics or fabric designers? Why?

I like to work with plain old cotton...however I do use others but, cotton is my favorite. I like euro fabrics and Amy Butler.

7. Where and when do you do most of your sewing? Are you neat about it or do you have fabric covering the floor!

I sew at night while the kids are sleeping. Sometimes my hubby will take the kids for the day out while I sew. I am one of the messy ones for sure! My sewing room get's a major overhaulin' about three times a month.

8. What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

I love to visit with friends and family, spend time with my kids and oh shopping... what girl doesn't though??

9.Anything else you would like to add?

I would just like to thank Amy for giving me the time to share a little about myself. And for creating this place so that we can all come together and share what we all love.
