Those of you in the Missouri area know that we have some really wonderful people working at Zede’s Sewing Studio. They are helpful, inspiring and energetic women who support the store and our customers in the best way possible.
One of those ladies is Victoria, say hello!
Recently, Victoria and her mother have been filing paperwork to become a part of a new local chapter of D.A.R. (Daughters of the American Revolution). Members of this group can trace their lineage back through the generations to a member of the American Revolutionary Army- neat! You can imagine how difficult this process can be, so Victoria asked for a little help in making a celebratory bag for her mother’s birthday.
After some tweaking in BERNINA V6 software, we created this design together. Then we stitched it onto a tote bag using the Baby Lock Enterprise 10 needle embroidery machine.
The design was the brain child of Victoria and her daughter Colleen- so it was a great present for Victoria’s mother. For those of you who are counting, that’s three generations of D.A.R. women! We used an EmbroideryArts alphabet for the letters called Gothic 13, the star was from the V6 software, and I digitized the stripes.
One more thought before we go. While we were stitching this design out on the machine, a woman walked into the store to check in a machine for service. She too was a part of the new chapter! Small world.
Have you ever created a specialized item for a group or club?
