I learned sewing basics, such as using a sewing machine, hemming and hand sewing buttons, from my Mom. It wasn't until I began working for Sew News in 2006 that I learned how to read a pattern, construct garments and other valuable techniques that have taken my sewing skills to a whole new level. I began working for Creative Machine Embroidery in 2008 and have been fascinated with the embroidery world ever since. In 2006, I graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in English Writing with an emphasis in Film Studies. When I’m not at work, I spend my free time hanging out with my husband, trying out new recipes and watching the Green Bay Packers.
