Bernina DesignerPlus version 6

DSC_0006I bought the most amazing software to digitize embroidery designs. It was a crazy amount of money that almost DSC_0009required the payment of my firstborn, thank goodness for my sewing business funds.
My motivation to digitize has been the utter lack of modern designs out there for purchase. I have searched high and low all over the internet only to find silly tea cups with smiley faces and butterflies that require 28 thread color changes. As a former valley girl from the 1980s I would say, “Gag me with a wooden spoon.” Definitely the embroidery companies are not catering to the 30-something crowd.
So now I can digitize my own modern minimalist designs. Here’s what I’ve created so far. I’m just lovin it all! Pretty soon I’ll sell my own modern designs to counteract all the old lady garbage out there.technicolor pillow

Hello, I just stumbled on your blog somehow. I just got a sewing/embroidery machine and can't stop embroidering things. I'd LOVE it if you sold designs! I've been purchasing some designs on etsy already...mostly applique for kids that isn't too cutesy. The vine pillow is amazing. Keep up the good work.

I have been looking at your designs on etsy and love them all! And your pillows are gorgeous! You are so right about there not being modern designs ANYWHERE! They are all for little old ladies who embroider. No thanks! I was so excited when I came across your designs on etsy!! Keep them coming! I am getting ready to go purchase some right now!
