Fine Thread Art was started in the beginning of 2010 with my dad's vision. He had faith that I could quit my 9-5 desk job in the accounting department of an oilfield company and transition to working in the embroidery business. There was a gigantic learning curve, (and I'm still learning everyday...) but I'm now the owner and operator of this business and feeling so proud of it. We started in a spare bedroom, and now we have our own 500 square foot space in the back of our country home.
I've always known that I wanted to work in a creative profession and have gone through a few big decisions to get to where I am today. I am a huge believer in the fact that if you don't like something about your life, it's up to YOU to change it. From starting college in visual arts to completing cosmetology school to working in a salon then office and now finally finding my niche in embroidery...it's been a journey. I come from a family of small business owners and have always admired them for doing things on their own terms. So, here I am... a part of the family tradition.
Growing up in South Louisiana has really inspired me in my work to create treasures that can be used to celebrate the gift in everyday. I am so touched and honored to get to have a little part in customers' weddings, birthdays, parties, and just everyday lives. To know that my guest towels are hanging in someone's home or that a bride is preparing for her wedding in a shirt that I embroidered for her or that a new student is walking across campus for the first time in one of my monogrammed sweatshirts... it just makes me overwhelmingly happy.
I'm so glad to be involved in a community like Etsy, and I look forward to working with customers both new and returning to create pieces that are both beautiful and practical. Thank you for taking the time to look through my shop. I appreciate my customers' parts in helping me to live my dream everyday.
