Tell us how you started your business / creative venture?
I have always enjoyed needlepoint (My Granny inspired me to try it) and thought I could give embroidery a try and as soon as I picked up that first hoop I knew I couldn’t stop. That was two years ago.
How long have you been doing your creative work?
I have been at embroidery for two years and the struggles I have encountered have been self-imposed. I have a horrible habit of thinking whatever I create and put out there will be laughed at and no one will want to buy it.
What made you choose this journey?
I have always been so jealous of people that can draw or paint so when I discovered I can get my artistic point across and create what I want to create with a needle and thread I chose embroidery.
Share a quote you live by. It can be yours or something else that inspires you!
A bible verse from the book of Matthew. It’s Matthew 14:27. “Take courage, It is I. Do not be afraid.” It has helped me on any adventure God has taken me on this far in my life.
