Turning a love of embroidery and quilting into a home business

Since I was a little girl, I've loved any type of needlework. My grandmother was an accomplished seamstress, and she taught me to sew when I was 10. I learned to sew on an antique Singer treadle sewing machine that my mother kept in the basement, and when I was in college I saved my pennies and bought my first sewing machine. I used that machine for more than twenty years!

My husband was career Air Force, so we traveled frequently (often without a sewing machine). During those years I discovered cross stitch and needlepoint - needlework projects that were easily portable. I was an elementary school principal, and cross stitching was my favorite way to relax after school.

Once we both retired, I returned to sewing and purchased my first embroidery machine - a single needle Husqvarna - and took lessons from a local sewing and quilting shop. In the last couple of years, I've embroidered thousands of baby quilts (and more). I now have two commercial embroidery machines, and love the unlimited opportunities for embroidery. What can I create for you?

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

For most items I use new polymailers to ship your embroidered item. For large items or multiples I use clean, recycled boxes.

I will include a gift receipt and ship directly to your recipient, if you choose this option at checkout. At this time, I am unable to offer gift wrapping.

Custom and personalized orders

Almost everything I offer is custom-made and personalized. This means I will need YOUR APPROVAL for each design you wish embroidered on the item. Please check the Etsy convo system and/or your email account for this proof.

Proofs of the design will be emailed within 48 hours, and I will not begin stitching without your approval. If you do not approve it, I will attempt to contact you at least three times, and will even extend the shipping time if necessary.

However, if I do not receive an approval of the proof, I will either stitch the design using the information you provided, or cancel and refund your order, using my best judgement.

Care instructions

The embroidered baby blankets are machine washable, cold, delicate cycle. You will have the best results if you hang them to dry.

The tote bags may be spot-cleaned.

The unique customization process

Every item in my shop is a custom order. This means that I'll work with you to create the perfect design, in the perfect colors, for your unique situation.

Once you place your order and provide the personalized/customized details, I'll create a proof (within 48 hours - usually much sooner) and send it to you via the Etsy conversation system and/or your personal email.

Most times we'll go back and forth, adjusting colors, fonts, and placement to get the design just right. I never mind doing this, trying out different combinations. I want every client to be delighted with the custom embroidery we create together.

What does the back of the quilt look like? Where can the design be placed? How is the stitching finished?

The baby quilts I use are already quilted with a 3x4 grid of medallions (similar to a wholecloth quilt). My designs can be stitched on any of the 12 medallions, although I most commonly stitch them on one of the corners, on the diagonal. There isn't a true "center" to the quilt because of the 3x4 grid layout. Contact me for specifics as to design placement.

The threads on the back are also trimmed to within 1/4 inch of the design. They cannot be trimmed any closer without risking the integrity of the stitching.

Why does the proof not look exactly like the photograph in the listing?

Your design will look more like the photograph in the listing than like the proof. The proof is a digital approximation of what the actual stitch out will look like. Even the photograph isn't exact.

Remember that you're looking at both of them on a computer or a device that may have a different color calibration than my computer.

So you have the quilt in real life (what you'll see in person), a photograph of that same design (so one step removed but still an actual stitching), and then a digital proof of your specific design (which is now TWO steps removed from the real thing).

It's the best I can do to show you what your design, with your information, will look like. I provide the proof so that you can correct any errors you find.
