Creating, Sewing, Quilting and Embroidering and Loving It!

After sewing for many family members, my eldest daughter told me about Etsy and encouraged me to join and test the waters. That was 3 years ago and I am still loving it. I feel so blessed to have this venue to create, design, sew, quilt, and embroider all while making a little money on the side. I love fabrics that are bright, fresh and modern and full of positive energy.

I originally started out with the goal to have some extra money in my pockets so my husband and I could go out and dine a little more. Hence the name, "diningout".

I started out by selling embroidered home decor items such as table runners, napkins, placemats and pillow covers. After investing in some digitizing software I began to digitize my own designs. They have become my best sellers.

The Catholic Church approached me to design and embroider some communion cloths and altar cloths for their diocese. This was a real honour for me.

After taking a year off due to illness, I decided to come back and add some quilting items to my little shop. I love the fun, funky, fresh, modern, cotton fabrics. Since I have a state of the art sewing machine I am able to quilt all of my fabrics by attaching a special frame to my machine. This machine hooks right up to my computer where I am able to download designs and then transfer them over to my sewing machine. I am truly blessed to be doing all of this at this stage of my life. I can honestly say I am having a ball.

Here's what people are saying about this shop:
"What a wonderful, fresh and modern design - just what I was looking for! Excellent and personalized communication. I would definitely shop here again. Thanks!"

"Adorable quilt for the crib - excellent service and very speedy shipping! Thanks so much!"

"Beautiful handmade item, super nice to work with, very fast!"

"Absolutely loved working with Diningout Steininger! Very helpful and patient with my custom requests. Beautiful work and I am very pleased with my finished product! Thank you so much!"

"The custom table runner will be used on our wedding day, 10-10-10. The runner is amazing and will look perfect at our table-for-two at the front of thre room! Thank you so much!!!"

"I am a repeat customer and have only wonderful things to say about this shop! Beautiful embroidered work and fabulous service! Highly recommend!"
