As an American, and as a Seamstress and Designer with more than 25 years experience, I am asking for your help to purchase a dream machine.  I need US$16000 to purchase and set up, in my existing workroom, a commercial embroidery machine with the ability to sew up to 12 thread colors in a single design of large size (like jacket backs) and on interesting shapes (like sleeves).  

Your investment in me and my workroom would allow me to support various local organizations by producing their fundraising items like t-shirts, caps, and tote bags, locally.  I will also be able to provide in house talent and labor for a several young entrepreneurs in the area who are looking for specific finishes that my current machines cannot handle on the scale they need.  

By helping me buy this machiine, you help preserve the Yankee heritage that keeps us strong and hard at work here in the US.  You will allow me to take on an employee, and you will allow me to make enough money doing what I love that I can take a little more time to invest in the future of American Seamstresses myself by continuing to reach out, teach, and share what I have learned in more than 25 years personal experience as a professional seamstress and from the generations that have gone before me.  

Part of the blessing of my path is that I cannot do it alone - I have the honor of working with people all day, every day, to make their visions a reality - well tailored clothing and beautiful home furnishings make everyone feel special!  It is not often I ask something for myself, and even now, I am asking because this gift will benefit many.  Please help me with the purchase of this dream machine!  

I could have chosen a number of photos to include here, that would be more flattering or professional looking photos, but the one I chose is one of me, doing what I love, for someone I love.
