A Little About Me  …

Hello and Welcome!!  My name is Molly and I am the owner of Applique & Embroidery Originals!  I launched AEO in August of 2017 after working in the industry for over 13 years, for 5 different digitizing companies as an independent contractor!  I’m so thankful that these designers took the time to mentor me and help me grow in this industry; and supported me to become the digitizer that I am today.  My love of monograms, applique and embroidery led me to create my own business and it was a natural jump from being an independent contractor.

Do some of my designs look familiar to you?  They will if you have been around as long as me!!  I was blessed with the opportunity to buy a large portion of the Hang to Dry Applique catalog in October 2017 when their doors closed and most recently added the Pick & Stitch designs to the site in October of 2018.  In addition to designs, fonts and in-the-hoop projects from these two amazing designers — you’ll find my own original creation on my pages!

I’m also a single mom of two amazing teenage girls, active in my church and community, and when I’m not behind a sewing machine or computer — you’ll find me outside!!  I love going to the beach, Disney World, Michigan (where I’m originally from), working in my yard or just taking a walk!

Thank you for joining me on this journey!!  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  ~Philippians 4:13
