Hi My name is Sharon and am the owner of this site. I am still learning so please be patient with me as I stumble my way around this website store thingy
My interests are first and foremost Machine Embroidery, I love the heirloom style hence the name of my site. I also love to do embroidery, cross stitch and hardanger by hand when I get time. I am also a seamstress and make one of a kind infant and childrens clothing. Many years ago I made a lot of clothes from ladies coats to mens leisure suits, but that was a lifetime ago.
I recently tried a freebie mylar design and am now totally hooked on Mylar embroidery. I really need to try and spend some time stitching out some of the beautiful designs I purchased from Betty's Original Embroideries, but so far this new mylar craze is making my website very busy with sales. I have played with different colors of mylar and the opal one is the best. But I am going to try some gold and silver on some wedding and christmas designs to see what effects I can get. A friend stitched out some linen tea towels yesterday and brought them over to show me today. She did a wonderful job and I am going to put them in my photo gallery later this evening.
I am an avid reader and also a bit of a computer buff. Thank goodness I am retired so I can get time to pursue all my hobbies.
Thank you to everyone for your support and a very warm welcome to my site.
