Announcement   If it is imperative that your item arrive before a certain date, I recommend choosing Priority 2-3 Day at check-out and ordering as early as possible. Don't forget to also add a note to the order that it's a rushed item. Otherwise I will be doing orders in the order that I receive them, including orders that I receive through email, Paypal, and in-person.

About

Welcome to my humble Minnesota shop!

My shop unofficially started in very early 2015 when I learned about machine embroidery. I downloaded one of the few free digitizing programs and played around with it until I was sure of what I was getting myself into.

Lo and behold, a short time later, I had my machine! It's a small home machine, but I wouldn't have it any other way right now. Eventually I'd love to upgrade, but I have a ways to grow before that's possible. First I did some test monogramming with the programmed alphabets, then moved up to asking a friend for some sketches to test the limits of the free software that I was still using. Over the next eight months, I didn't do a lot for sales. I was mostly still learning. It wasn't until I finished a purse for friend's birthday gift that the idea of starting an Etsy became more than a "what if" in my mind.

The first few months were slow, but I had a few sales from people who were able to help me promote. Just recently I was able to upgrade to better software that wasn't free, and therefore has resources and support; it was very exciting! I can offer more customization than before and it takes me about half as long to create a design file with better accuracy to what the customer wants!

Even now, I still mostly do fanart items. However, I'd like to promote my custom work more. Basic things like decorative towels and holiday items. Perhaps I can even create base materials that can be used in the creation of someone else's items!

Current goals:
-Partner with artists to create unique designs
-Market more customizable items like towels, hats, and small accessories
