Hello! I hope everyone has had a great summer! I’ve stayed busy and had an opportunity to take my mom for a weekend away from home so she could see some different sites! We enjoyed a nice time in St. Simons and Jekyll Islands.
If ever need help, please fill out the Need Help form on the website.
Do you have friends or family who love embroidery as much as you do? Gift cards are always the perfect gift!
If you are not in the Facebook group you may have missed some of the recently added designs, including the recent announcement that in May I took over a shop named Baby Appliqués. Over 300 designs were added to the website.
I’ve recently added some other new designs and there are more to come in the near future!
One of my passions is to support other small businesses. It’s important to me that we work together to keep small businesses growing because they are the staple of our communities. It is the small businesses who are donating and volunteering at the local schools and little leagues and other organizations. The small businesses are the ones asked for donations. If we don’t support them, they won’t be able to support themselves and their families or the communities where they live.
There are two shops I’d like to feature and share with you. There are several in my journey since taking over Baby Kay’s that have been amazingly helpful and supportive of me. Providing advice, information, and everything in between and for that reason I’d like to give back!
Bella Bleu has a website full of unique designs! In the past I have embroidered several of Corena’s designs, each stitching out perfectly. You will love her Sunflower Scribble design and so many others. Head over to her shop and show her some love.
Tammy from Bad Bobbin is another wonderful embroidery designer. She has created a fun new category in her shop of Bracelet / Shoe Charms. Each design makes an awesome bracelet, but the cool kids are also tying them on their shoes for decoration!
Thank you to everyone who donated to Matt’s family after the untimely and unexpected passing of Matt from Uncle Matt’s Crib. $895 was raised and sent to Matt’s family.
Thanks to the following designers/digitizers who participated in the fundraiser by donating a design to the bundle.
If you missed the donation bundle and would still like to donate, there is a GoFundMe for the family.
Did you know you can earn points for every order you place as well as for every review you leave for a design you purchased? You will also earn points for submitting photos that can be used on the website and social media as well as contributing to the Makers Monday posts. I want to make every interaction you have with me and the business a ‘rewarding’ one!
I want to share your work with others! On Monday each week I like to put you in the spotlight! If you have embroidered a GeminiRed design, submit it to me and with your permission I will share it on social media to let others see different versions of the designs available. If you provide your social media links, I will tag you or your shop. I will happily endorse your small business if you have one. Besides Makers Monday, I am also looking for new photos for the website.
