Meet Your Makers: Pamela Grabowski of A PG Creation

Please introduce yourself and tell us about your handmade business:  I started knitting to relieve stress relief when I was working in public accounting. 

How did you come up with your business name? 
In the firm, we signed our work with our initials. So "A PG  Creation" was born. Trying to come up with something creative and clever would have just added to the stress!

Where do you live?  Brookline

Who’s in your family? My husband Michael and our cat D'Argo

If you could sit down and talk to any person, living or dead, who would it be and why?  My husband.  He is my best friend.

What inspires you? Nature.  

What is your favorite item you make for Boutique 208 and why? Scarfs. Warm winter scarves and the fancy decorative any season scarfs. It is the item that lends itself to many variations of yarn and colors and styles.

What is your favorite item at Boutique 208 that’s not one of your own and why?  I can’t pick one. In fact, I have a list of items I want to buy for myself. Then there's the list of items I think would make good birthday, shower, wedding or anniversary gifts. If you would stop in when I was working at the Boutique, you would find me standing at the counter looking around the shop making a mental list of what I could buy for each birthday and special occasion. That’s how I occupy my time when there are no customers.
What advice can you offer to someone who would like to start selling their handmade creations? Take a chance. Try. Participate in craft shows, ask the local coffee shop if they will sell your creations and of course Boutique 208.
