My passion has always been sewing, but I didn’t think I could make a living at it. Then I discovered the industry of professional embroidery. In 1994 the embroidery industry had grown 95% in the previous 5 years as stated in Entrepreneur magazine. After investing in a home embroidery machine, I began going to craft shows to see what the response would be for customized apparel. Needless to say, response was great! After about 5 years I purchased my first commercial embroidery machine and the world opened up! The demand for products changed about in 2001 and my customers requested screen printed T shirts and promotional products. They wanted one company who they could trust with their embroidery, screening and promotional products. We deliver a good quality product and exceptional service, so our full service company was born.
