I am married with 3 kids and live down south in Montgomery, Alabama! I started doing machine embroidery and applique as a hobby in 2007 and continue to do so for local friends, family and longtime customers. My husband Jeff does the computer side of digitizing for Applique Cafe, which was established in August of 2009. We do all of our own designing, digitizing, sampling, customer service, social media, etc. Please check out my blog ~ www.appliquecafeblog.com ~ for pictures, blog posts, resource guides and other helpful embroidery information I have gathered along the way.
