Got these bags for my bridesmaids and filled it with other things they can use for my mini destination wedding. I can't wait to give these to them!

Gorgeous work! Just as described and personalized the hankie based on what I wanted it to say. I really appreciated the updates in production and shipping straight from the shop owner. My dad is gonna bawl his eyes out!

I love all things embroidered!

I started doing embroidery 20 years ago after our daughter was married, and I was looking for something to fill my spare time.

I bought a home embroidery machine after seeing embroidered sweatshirts at a local craft show. I fell in love with the finished product, and as I learned the process involved in creating them, I knew I had to have a machine and do these myself!

After a few months of having a home machine, I ventured into the commercial aspect of the business and purchased a two-head embroidery machine. It cost more than my first house! That was a scary purchase!

I have sold embroidered items at craft shows for most of these 20 years, selling decorated women's sweatshirts to ladies in 3 states.

I started doing wedding handkerchiefs about 4 years ago and enjoy the challenge of creating a beautiful wedding keepsake for brides and grooms to give family members on their wedding day.

I have also embroidered wedding throw/blankets for at least 18 years, with the bride & groom's name and wedding date sewn, along with a beautiful design. I love creating these keepsakes, and envision these being handed down to future generations.

I look forward to many more years of doing embroidery and all of the advances that are sure to come in the future!

    I have been in the embroidery business for over 20 years. I am a retired computer programmer/analyst and have sewed all of my life, but became interested in embroidery and found it to be very rewarding. I do all the work in my shop myself!

Shop policies

My current production time is 5-7 business days plus shipping time (shipping is normally 2-3 days within the US). Handkerchiefs usually much quicker as I keep those in stock.

**Men's hankies are available in white only. Ladies' are available in white and ivory. Please specific when placing your order. If not specified, white will be used. As a result of recent feedback, I have changed my handkerchief style and am now using a heavier weight cotton.**

What I need to complete your order:
1) Verse--This includes name of recipient, verse, closing, signature and date. I copy and paste your wording into my embroidery software. Please make sure all capitalization, spelling, punctuation and grammar is correct.
2) Thread color for verse--See link in my listing for color chart
3) Font Style--See picture in listing for available fonts
4) If Flourish desired, I need the flourish style number, thread color and placement in the verse.

******Hankie wording limitations********

I have limited space in which to put your wording--limited by hankie size as well as hoop size. Please keep wording at approximately 40 words or less if no scroll is to be included, or 30 words or less if you want a scroll. There can be a little fluctuation, depending on the length of the words. Please send me your wording for approval if you see its going to be slightly longer.

I ship each handkerchief in a white 9x9 inch square envelope, similar to what you'd receive with a greeting card. If you prefer, window gift boxes are available for purchase in my shop. You can add these to your order at the time you make your handkerchief purchase. Be sure to purchase enough boxes to accommodate each handkerchief.

I will review your order as I am ready to work on it. If there is missing information, I will send you a convo at that time. Failure to provide all of the above information will delay your order.
