Michele Costa was born and raised in NYC and loved all things yarn since she was a child. Despite having a successful career in television production, Michele began to dream of starting her own business designing and creating modern crochet & knitwear. Michele took a leap of faith and opened an Etsy shop and was stunned when, within 2 days, her items were selling out and people were asking about her designs. Since then it has been full steam ahead creating hand crochet & knit creations. In 2016 she launched the blog Stitch & Hustle for the maker community.
