I have been creating embroidery art for over thirty years. Having taught myself to embroider by watching the generations of creative seamstresses that came before me, I eventually felt the need to try my hand at new and more challenging ways to express myself. When I was pregnant with my first child I started working with counted cross stitch but found that the patterns available were not always what I wanted or were so overpriced as to make them unattainable at the time. So I began creating my own patterns, one stitch at a time by hand.
After my son was born I began creating custom children's toys and clothing for him, and for many of my friend's and neighbor's children. Including personalized embroidery and applique work on my custom designs enabled me to create unique one-of-a-kind creations that the children loved as much as their parents.
When I was expecting my fifth child my husband bought me an embroidery machine. I had wanted one for years and I was so excited to put it to work for me. The only problem I found was that the designs were so expensive and the selection was limited. I knew there had to be a better way.
When I started creating my own designs I found that others were constantly asking where I had found them and how could they get them. Thus I started putting together a collection of all of the designs I had created and went to work creating more. I wanted to enable other people to enjoy all the possibilities available without the enormous expense.
The major embroidery design companies want you to believe that anyone who sells designs for less than they do have stolen their designs or are offering inferior quality designs. This is not the case! I have sold hundreds of my design sets and have never had a dissatisfied customer. Every design, whether for machine embroidery or counted cross stitch patterns, is my own creation. I have put in countless hours ensuring that I only offer the finest quality to my customers as I would expect myself.
