A Plumcute Story…

First and foremost, I am a child of grace, mama to Not-So Little Miss and Mister, a “retired” high school teacher, a collector of many things,  a pattern and fabric designer, an author, and blessed way beyond measure to be doing something that I absolutely love to do.

For as long as I can remember I have been a doodler with paper and pencil on hand wherever I go. I learned the basic embroidery stitches in a 6th grade elective course and have been stitching them to my
hearts content for well over 30 years now.  Plumcute Designs is the natural merging of these two parts of me.

Way back in 1999 I got this wild idea to establish a pattern company.  I thought I was going to design quilts. I never imagined that I would spend the next two decades drawing, stitching, and developing patterns
for embroiderers world wide.  My first independently published pattern released in the Fall of 2000. My designs have been in publications worldwide since 2007.

In 2019 I had the honor and privilege to add Martingale author to the list of things to know about me.

In 2020 I released my very first line of fabric, called Sew Merry & Bright, with  Studio 37 a division of Marcus Fabrics and I continue to work with them to create beautiful fabrics for stitchers worldwide.

It has been an extraordinary adventure and I am thankful to all those that have inspired and helped make this possible. I look forward to continued creativity and the opportunity to inspire stitchers around the globe.
