#Celebrating Sheila Walker - Embroiderer Extraordinaire!
My last post highlighted five spanking new authors from the Writing in Community. Today I'd like to highlight and celebrate my friend, Sheila Walker, who has been my go-to gal for years on any embroidery I need for my quilts, other sewing projects, and lately for hubby Bill's #Twinztalk paraphernalia (shirts and jackets). Sheila is also a prolific quilter and we met years ago in the Southern Comforters Quilt Guild.
Sheila does excellent work. Her two embroidery machines; one a 6-needle, and the big one, a 10-needle are what she loves to work on to create unique items. She can do hats, jackets, anything her hoop can handle with all those needles! Sometimes Sheila has both machines going at once - it's a sight to behold with 16 needles going up and down and creating words, motifs, embellishments, personalization, and decorating just about any fabric at hand. And...she has about every color of thread one could think of to make whatever is getting embroidered extra special and one-of-a-kind!
If local, and interested in Sheila's embroidery services, she is located in the Crofton/Bowie/Glen Dale, Maryland area. She can be reached easiest by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wouldn't a great motif look great on the back of a denim jacket? I know Sheila could knock your socks off with a beautiful creation that could also be personalized. She is easy to work with and would offer suggestions with her expertise to make whatever is being embroidered an easy experience for all.
