Having decades of experience in the area of graphic arts and design, I have learned to appreciate both free style and computer generated graphics alike. Although, when I was first introduced to computers in 1982, I thought using a computer to generate what I used to accomplish "freehand" was "cheating". Look how far we have come since then!
My first experience in machine embroidery was in 2003, using the Husqvarna Viking Designer I, along with Viking's VIP digitizing software. I have since upgraded to Husqvarna's Designer SE machine, and have purchased Toyota's Expert ESP9100NET Commercial machine to sew out projects. My digitizing software of choice is DRAWings which works hand-in-hand with CorelDraw.
I am able to take a variety of graphic formats and turn them in to embroidery designs to be used as fabric decoration, patches etc., whatever is needed. The designs are downloadable in a variety of formats, depending on your machine!
I was a "Navy Brat" in the early years of my life, I've lived in Rhode Island, New Jersey, Florida, Georgia and California. I have been blessed with two remarkable children. My son and his wife have been blessed with a two gorgeous daughters, and a son. My daughter is working hard on her education, and has her own business (Butterfly's Creations)! My husband is a native Californian from the Central Valley. So much to be thankful for!
I hope you find this site a blessing to you and yours!
