My name is Martha Sheriff. Some of you may know me through my affiliation with OESD through 2008. I'm a professional embroiderer and a pattern designer. I believe my patterns are innovative and may have a little different concept of construction. However, those who have used my patterns know that the instructions are very well written and easy to understand. I will be glad to help if there is ever a problem but I like to make sure my patterns go through extensive testing before they are published.
