Five years ago, I wanted to find a way to bring a little income into our household. A friend suggested I make applique patches. She showed me how to embroider them and let me borrow one of her embroidery machines. From that moment on, I was hooked. I love the creativity and making them available to others for their own DIY projects. Today I own four embroidery machines.
