Garden of Daisies Embroidery began 15 years ago when my daughter’s Irish step dancing school was in need of embroidered costumes. I was the “mom in the lobby” who raised her hand when the teacher asked if anyone knew how to sew. In the beginning, we had a commercial embroiderer stitching out the motifs while my partner, Sally Ellingsen, and I constructed the dresses. We soon realized that it was difficult to control the quality of the finished product if we weren’t doing every bit ourselves. So…the first of many embroidery machines was purchased and here I am.

Over the years, my embroidery business has evolved and grown and taken me down many different and interesting paths. An industry award, some published articles and some good press have made me feel like I must be doing something right. I certainly am doing what I love and loving what I do.

Garden of Daisies continues to grow and currently offers original machine embroidery designs, as well as project-based articles seen in my column -- "4" x 4" and Fabulous!" -- in Designs in Machine Embroidery Magazine. My newest division, Seedlings Sewing Patterns, offers fresh & fun projects for the creative sewer.

Thanks for visiting Garden of Daisies.
Please take a look around.
