I've been sewing since 3rd grade - and have been drawing ever since I can remember. I spent a semester at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where I discovered I have a talent for design - but not realistic drawings. So I headed home to Ohio. I've worked in various positions - layout artist, photo lab tech, and creating my own crafts to sell at area craft fairs. I've raised a family - a son and 2 daughters. I had to wait a long time for sewing machines and computers to get together, but they finally did. I started with a Viking Rose, creating applique designs on denim shirts to sell at my craft fairs. Then I decided maybe others might like to stitch my designs on their projects. So Pegboard Crafts began the transformation from crafts to embroidery designs. I specialize in applique and in-the-hoop designs. I also love to share my knowledge of the wonderful embroidery program, Embird. I have the privilege to teach classes at the AEC (American Embroidery Conference), online webinars and travel to teach 2 days seminars. I love working with newbies - it so so great to see the lights come on and know they are going to have as much fun with embroidery as I do. I also enjoy spending time with my two adorable grandchildren, Jonathan and Alexandra who are growing up much too fast!
Pegboard Crafts is me, myself and I. I'm a one woman show. My hubby gives a hand now and then if I need some hauling done and he doesn't complain too loudly when I have to leave home.
I never use clip art for my designs. I do almost all of my own drawing - my 2 daughters contribute some of their drawings from time to time. You'll see their names on some of the designs through out the website. I also don't do custom designs for others. I like the freedom of creating my own designs the way I like them. I hope you like them too.
By the way, if you are wondering, the name Pegboard Crafts came from when I was doing tole painting - my name (Peg) and I painted on wood (boards). I also used pegboards for my booth display. My hubby decided it should really be Peg-bored Crafts - I did crafts because I was bored....
I continue to work out of my home here near Coldwater, Ohio. I enjoy being a small company and being able to be in touch with all of my customers, many who have become quite good friends as well.
