I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to contribute to the production of new products. What does this include? It includes any of the following: (not listed in order, I won’t give away my trade secrets! 😉
- Writing/editing copy for packaging
- Photography for packaging
- Formatting embroidery designs into all the needed machine formats
- Gathering all files for master CDs
- Editing books, project instructions, color sequence charts
- Double checking copyrights, trademarks, manuals
- Testing embroidery design collections
- Project management
- Stitching embroidery samples for packaging
- Creating original embroidery design collections:
- Providing initial sketches to graphic artists. Artwork is then converted to embroidery designs
- Brainstorming on new product names, brand names, etc.
- Suggesting and helping to implement new features for embroidery software (My Emoji Stitches)
- Testing, testing, testing, testing and more testing.
Of course, none of the bullet points listed above takes place without the help and input of others. But without a lot of discipline, self-motivation and organization not as much would get done.
In one fashion or another, I played a role in the products shown. You are welcome to ask questions. I see them as if they are my children. And just like children, some were a bit more “challenging” to manage than others! (And unlike a parent, yes, I absolutely have my Fabulous favorite…)

Clip Art Packs
Clip Art Packs: I’m physically on two out of the 3 Clip Art packages shown above. Do you know which ones? And in one of the photos, I was the model and the photographer. Thank goodness for a tripod and camera timer.
My Emoji Stitches: If you study the images, you’ll see my friends and I were converted to embroidery and placed on the packaging. Bonus points if you can name each person. 🙂
Stitched Snapshots Plus:
I went to the grocery store and purchased the most attractive looking pineapple to photograph. Once complete, I left the pineapple in my office for about a week for it to ripen. My coworker, Sam Solomon, was tasked with cutting the pineapple for the office to enjoy.
