Meet Bobbie, Founder of A Vision to Remember {also known as AVTR Boutique}

Posted by Bobbie Stucki on


I am Bobbie, Founder of A Vision to Remember, but more importantly, a mom and taxi driver to my 4 kiddos. 

I started this little business exactly 7 years ago, this month.  I had a very huge desire to be able to help provide for my family.  We were struggling, after being hit with the recession and had recently moved back to where we had both grown up.  Needless to say, I had tried many different ways of making money from home, but none of them stuck.

Then, one day I was trying to find a pattern for a belly band online, as I was 8 months pregnant at the time.  There wasn't anything out there.  I had the fabric, the sewing machine, but I didn't have the know how.

So after much searching, and searching, I decided to go for it and try it. 

The pattern worked! I was so excited, and then I thought to myself, what if I turned this into a real pattern, that people could buy.

I knew that I couldn't sell it for very much, but every penny counted.  So I went to work writing the pattern, and adding it to my Etsy shop. 

That pattern over the years has only brought in a little bit of money, but it inspired and gave me the confidence that I could make a little money from home, doing something that I enjoyed, while being a stay at home mom.

Eventually I began making rag quilts for my daughters, and those rag quilts, turned into patterns, and quilts for sale on etsy.

Through the  years, my wonderful and encouraging customers have come to me with different requests, and because of all of you {my amazing customers} A Vision to Remember has turned into what you see now.

That once, part time, penny making business, has turned into something much larger that has been able to provide a full time income for my family.  It has also allowed my kids to do extra curricular activities that I never would have dreamed possible 7 years ago.


So, from the deepest part of my, I thank you.  Each and every one of you, customers of A Vision to Remember, for your love and support.  For making me grow as a person, and helping me create this amazing business that I am so humbled to have been able to be a part of
