"When I was new to machine embroidery reading Designs in Mach emb and one of your articles showed how to use the same design and repeat it! It was like a light bulb going on. Someone had given me permission to do something besides put a design in the middle of a garment. Your trunk shows at Sew Expo are always amazing and of course the crystal club and the designs. You do a wonderful job. I loved your red jacket at the Fashion Show this year. Unfortunately I couldn't find the magazine it was in."

"I love your design with all the crystals on the waist.  It was great for a trip to the Chicago this summer.  Going outside is about the only time I can wear summer dresses, it's just too cool in Anchorage.  And you just can't wear the same dress year after year.  Always a good reason to make more! Love your designs!"

"Now you can see why I wanted more clear crystals. I used everything I had on this. My best guess is it took about 6 hours of glueing/ironing to make this store brought jacket look like this. The buttons are from JoAnn's."

Here is a great reason to have a good supply of crystals on hand.  The ribbon of crystals running down the front and  the back has it's fair share.   The crystals added just the right touch of magic to this jacket

"Just wanted to share the finished jacket with you that I used your designs on. The animal print I picked up in South Africa. Your designs added just the right touch to turn this into an Oh Wow garment. The jacket fabric is spectacular. The only embroidery is the row of designs next to the placket, the diamonds made up of little squiggles. The designs are from the Summer Boxes set which is no longer for sale."
