"I have been involved in the commercial embroidery industry for 25 years as an instructor for commercial embroidery equipment and embroidery software, trade show director, shop owner and most recently editor of Stitches Magazine.

Embroidery is my art/creative outlet and I also pursue it as a side business. I also create craft projects along side the commercial sellable products. I have been a weaver, and currently I enjoy beading, embroidery and sewing."

"I come from a multi generation family of sewing enthusiasts. I learned at an early age the value of creating my own look and style under the tutelage of my grandmother and her sewing machine. My career has spanned sewing/embroidery machine sales, embroidery supply sales, training/installation of embroidery equipment, trade show management, applications expert and former editor/managing editor of Stitches Magazine. Currently I am a freelance educational consultant for a major sewing machine manufacturer."

"Why would anyone would want to embroider something that is already embroidered, you may ask? My initial response is because one can make the item more personal, which, in turn, makes it even more special to the recipient of such a gift. A quick inspection of the retail market reveals many embroidered items. Why not embellish those pieces with your own monogram or stock design and create a memorable piece? With a little investigation, imagination and creativity, we can attain our goal."
