Meet Evette Cantero, the creative force behind Eve’s Creations. After dedicating many years as a civilian employee for the NYPD in the bustling boroughs of Manhattan and the Bronx, Evette, fondly known as Eve to her friends, embarked on a new chapter of her life with her husband by moving to Orange County, NY, seeking a simpler and more fulfilling lifestyle.
The initial tranquility of Orange County, however, came with its own set of challenges, primarily a lengthy daily commute that soon became a significant hurdle. In response, Eve decided to embrace early retirement, opening the door to a fresh dilemma—how to fill her newfound leisure time. Unsuccessful in her local job search, she pondered the idea of starting her own business, and becoming her own boss in the process.
Thus, Eve’s journey into the realm of handcrafted wonders began—a labor of love that would define her entrepreneurial spirit. Expressing an interest in learning to sew, she delved into countless YouTube tutorials, eventually mastering the skill on a thoughtful gift from her supportive husband—a brand-new sewing machine.
Nearly five years ago, Eve introduced her first creations to the world—decorative pillows, which have since become a signature product of her business. Evolving over time, Eve’s Creations now boasts a diverse array of offerings, ranging from blankets and padded books to backpacks and tee-shirts, and more, all meticulously crafted with a personal touch.
You can discover Eve’s Creations at local craft shows and the iHeart Hudson Valley Market, where an enchanting selection of sweet gift packages and tee-shirts awaits. Step into the world of Eve’s Creations today and witness the passion and craftsmanship woven into each unique piece.
