A Star is Born....

...or should I say, A Store is Born!

I have just opened a second shop on etsy...Betty's closet.

This shop will be stocked with fabric and other fun crafting goodies that I find. I have a stash of vintage patterns I will be listing here as well as some vintage trims and Andalucia ribbons.

So how does someone named Kristen who has a store named gock's frocks open a store named Betty's Closet you may ask??? Well...a little history is in order.

I originally chose the name - gock's frocks as my maiden name is Gocker and it was my grandma, Betty Gocker who taught me to sew MANY years ago!

when I would go to her house and we would work on a project together we always went to the closet in her sewing room to gather our goodies...pins, measuring tape, patterns, fabric, thread and more...Betty's Closet.

Thus...a store was born!
