Meet Our Staff: Emily Hitchner

Posted by Darren Roberts on

What do you do here at LooptyHoops?

I work mostly in the shipping department.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

I love playing with earrings and getting to listen to my audio books!

Where are you from originally?

Sublimity, Oregon.

Do you have any kids? Any pets?

I have a husband, two daughters, and two cats. The husband is John, the daughters are Izzy (pictured) and Peach, and the cats are Luna and Perdy.

What's something most people don't know about you?

That I was homeschooled and started college at 16 as a result.

Any hobbies?

I am an avid quilter, spinner, knitter, and occasional crocheter. I also really love vintage and antique sewing machines. I do most of my sewing on a treadle sewing machine. It is very satisfying to me to be the one controlling the machine. 

If you were a bird, what kind would you be?

I would be an African Grey Parrot. I loved Doctor Doolittle growing up, and I thought that Polynesia was really neat - her ability to speak pretty much all the animal languages and how she was able to teach the Doctor.

And if you were a pickle..? Which is a perfectly valid question.

I much prefer dill. I can't stand sweet pickles.

What's your favorite movie?

The Back to the Future Trilogy (although my favorite is the third).

And finally, Emily, what’s your favorite LooptyHoops earring?

I really like the yellow gold hoops with the leaves engraved in them.


It is very satisfying to me to be
the one controlling the machine.
