One of our many vendor shows on Cape Cod Massachusetts. We have so much fun meeting new people. Spreading Nicole's message about her service dog. And spreading the etsy love by spreading the link to our shop.

Personalization For a Cause - Help Nicole Gain Independence

Em & Dee's Designs began in 2015. Though as a family we have been crafting for years. Our specialization is personalized gifts. The items in our shop you won't find in an everyday store, we like having a personalized touch.

Here is the back story to Em & Dee's Designs. Diane Johnson-Tarzia learned to craft from her mom, Emily or Em. That is why it is called Em & Dee's Designs. Diane has always had a love of crafting in many forms, Diane has made everything from diaper cakes to gift baskets and most recently embroidered gift items. Em & Dee's Designs is a family operated business. Diane, with her two children, Scott and Nicole, but Em & Dee's Designs began long before 2015. In the 1950's Em had a shop called "The Woodshed". All three of Em's daughters worked in the shop from time to time. This is where Diane learned her love of crafting. Since then, Diane was told after giving gifts to family and friends that she had made that she should go into business. She put this off for years in order to raise her children, but as fate would have it, she would have to rely on her craft to help her daughter gain independence and a life despite having a disability. You see, Nicole was born with Cerebral Palsy, which makes her have to use a wheelchair and the expense of this can be extremely great. We are currently working on 3 different goals for Nicole: one is a service dog, in order to help her gain more independence the second is an adapted vehicle, as Nicole working on learning to drive, and the third is making adaptations to a home so Nicole can live independently. In order to do this, we have created a company where Diane works with her son and daughter to achieve the vast amount of money needed for these goals. So, everytime you purchase an item, it is not for financial gain but to help Nicole.

The idea of embroidery began because Diane's son had 10+ years experience working for a commercial uniform company embroidering corporate logos for many well known corporations. Scott decided that he could combine his love of working with his family and his artistic ability to create what is now Em & Dee's Designs. There will be plenty of different types of gift items changing within Em & Dee's Designs as time passes, but for now the Johnson-Tarzia family is very pleased to carry on Em's legacy and bring to it's customers a wide range of items that we would be proud for you to have in your home. Know that every time you shop you are bringing the family together and you are giving Nicole the greatest gift. We look forward to helping you with all your gift personalization needs, so please shop and enjoy.
With Love,
Diane & Family

Shipping Pricing

I Will more than gladly combine shipping on multiple items in an order...The order must be placed all at one time. The way that the shipping option is set up makes it difficult to estimate shipping for various different types of items in one order. So please convo the shop and I will gladly work out the best shipping price given what type of items you purchase within that order.It is our hope that we can keep our shipping prices as reasonable as possible.

Care instructions
