ABOUT US

I have a small shop located just outside of Jefferson City, MO.  I have been a crafter-creator and lover of the arts since I was 12 years old. My mother was creative and my grandmother was creative, I guess it's in my genes.

I am a mother of wonderful 2 sons, both have left the nest and have  their own families. I am the proud grandmother of 2 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. I love them all and wouldn't take a wooden nickel for any them. My sons are the reason that I've accomplished everything in life, they gave me my drive to survive and to become the self-sufficient person that I am. They are the pride and joy of my creative life. They just don't understand it. ;-)

Being very determined to accomplish anything I set my mind to, I've become proficient in making my own way in life and try to touch the hearts of others along the way. I love creating for other people as well as making gifts for special occasions in my family. 

I am well educated in sewing, crochet, filet crochet, alterations, apparel decoration using new style vinyl, embroidery, rhinestones and studs, applique  and patternmaking for apparel. I am Certified in Embroidery and have created software with the help of a programmer for creating Home Dec patterns. I'm very proud of my accomplishments. 

Many people use embroidery or monogramming to promote a business, club, organization, birth, fundraisers, sports leagues, wedding, seasonal gathering, or just to capture memories and give personalization. Some people use it just for the fun!

Rhinestone apparel is a "HOT" item right now. People love all that bling! Well, so do I! I recently started incorporating rhinestones and rhinestuds in with the rest of my resume of things I do. I'm very excited about it. You can include Rhinestones on just about anything you can embroider 

Embroidery is very popular with people that want dimensional artwork on apparel, ie: jackets, gloves, equipment bags, polos, t-shirts, towels, mittens, cooliespatches/badgestotes or checkbooksblankets, underwear, car mats, headrests, seats, fleece, sweatshirts, dress shirts, denim, aprons, purses, equine tack, shoes, and anything else you can think of. Embroidery is very versatile. Rhinestones, Heat Transfer Vinyl, buttons, fabric, and other products can be used to decorate apparel. All make great gifts or try out custom monogramming on pillows, towels, washcloths, shower curtains, pillowcases, bed sheets, comforters and other items. 

I do machine embroidery, rhinestones, heat transfer vinyl, crochet, filet crochet, embroidered lace, custom sewing, and alterations. I can also create custom fitting patterns for those of us that are physically challenged or find "off-the-rack" clothing to be unacceptable.
