With so many crafty things in Ashley Thompson’s life, she is also a self-taught embroiderer. She shared the radish on a napkin that was her very first attempt at embroidery–and it took hours to complete by hand. Brittany Kaye says she’s never tried to embroider anything. But after her recent visit to Fonder Sewing Machine Company to see what computer software can do, she just might take on an embroidery project. She visited with Trevor Conquergood of Sunset Stitches and Ben Reiser of Fonder Sewing to learn that anyone can sew amazing embroidery–only you won’t need a thimble or an embroidery hoop to do it.
