Kaitlin Wachter is the owner of a small business called A Stitch in Lives. She's been sewing since she was 8 years old and has often made gifts for family and friends as well as costumes and ties. She started her business last summer because she wanted to find an interesting way to raise money for charities and ministries. Her products are all handmade and they are really well done. She makes wristlets, handbags, and jewelry.
When she found out that her mother was having a baby boy, she created a cute stuffed owl and named it Henry in honor of her baby brother. When her brother, Addison, was born in April 2013 and diagnosed with Down syndrome, Kaitlin decided she wanted her donations from sales to go to F.R.I.E.N.D.S. of Frederick County, MD, a local Down syndrome organization. She even attended their annual Buddy Walk in September and sold many owls there as well.
With 50% of her net profit from sales going towards an organization dedicated to advocacy for people with Down syndrome, I couldn't help but say yes when she approached me via email to ask if I would talk about her business and what she is doing. I even decided, after looking at these adorable owls, to purchase 2 for a giveaway!
