Who I am

My name is Paula and I am an embroidery digitizing enthusiast. I have an elementary teaching and retail background. But these days you can find me in my studio creating new tutorials, embroidery designs and patterns. Some people might describe it as “following your passion”.

I have spent the last 15 years teaching myself to digitize and consuming every bit of information I can about machine embroidery. And, that’s why I have created Embroidery Gatherings.

Pinterest is my social media of choice and you can find me pinning everything embroidery related over on the Embroidery Gatherings Pinterest page.
