Sew Savvy Machine Embroidery Designs was started in 2007. Although the company has not been in business very long I personally have been doing embroidery and other crafts for many years. I come from a very "crafty" family and it seems that someone was always making something.
My great grandmother taught me to knit when I was around 5 years old. As I recall, she always had a pair of mittens on her needles and she would make them year round. Back then she would buy her wool on hanks and after washing it to rinse away any excess dye and letting it air dry, I would hold it between my two hands while she balled it. In the late fall I would deliver the mittens to the local store where she sold them.
I think it is natural for those who love to create to have more than one craft hobby. I too, have tried many things but my favorites are knitting, quilting, machine embroidery, and hardanger. With my knitting I prefer texturesâ€¦anything with cables but I truly enjoy lace knitting. I am currently working on a lace stole made with a very delicate 2 ply silk/cashmere yarn on 2mm needles. So if you can imagine the delicateness of this yarn and its cobweb like appearanceâ€¦this is one of my 3-4 year projects. Since it does take so long to make, I also have a need to alternate between these time consuming projects. No, they are not UFOâ€™s (UnFinished Objects) but WIP (Works In Progress). I do eventually finish all of my crafts, but I do it in my own sweet time (wink).
So how did I get to where I am now with machine embroidery? I have a love for computers and technology so it was a very natural step for me to dive into the world of machine embroidery. I enjoy being able to take my ideas and turn them into finished projects. Hand work is beautiful and a joy to do, but as my son said â€œif you made all your quilts by handâ€¦ youâ€™d be an old lady with only 2 quiltsâ€�. (See why I love him so much? Bright boy!) Therefore machine embroidery gives us all the opportunity to make wonderful things in a fraction of the time it would take to make by hand.
If you have any questions, comments or design requests, send me an e-mail. I would love to hear from you.
Thank you very much for visiting. I sincerely appreciate your business.
