I started sewing at a young age (once sewing my finger) and participated in a local 4-H sewing club. Back then I loved making my own Barbie doll clothes, pillows, and anything else I could think of. I can remember my mom and I buying fabric kits at the local fabric shop and making pillows for everyone.
I always wanted to buy a sewing machine that I could embroider with. I finally had that chance a while back and loved it! From there I became interested in digitizing my own designs, loved designing items with vinyl and glitter, and making rhinestone appliques. I also developed a passion for web design, went back to college, and graduated with my degree in Web Design & Development.
My inspiration comes from many areas. I love color, nature, and anything artsy. I’m always looking at the small details in something and get excited when a new idea pops into my head.
In 2008, I purchased a commercial embroidery machine and a short time later started THREADTAILS. I started out selling on Ebay, local consignment shops, and word of mouth. I now have three online shops and sell items including bling transfers, rhinestone, vinyl and glitter applique shirts, totes, and embroidered items.
Thanks for visiting my shop!
