My goal for 2020 was to start a home-based custom embroidery business, a long-time dream. Consistent with that goal Balanced Stitches was started in January 2020, with a new commercial embroidery machine arriving in mid-February. I was set to start in earnest by the end of February, just as the COVID-19 pandemic started to impact our daily lives and the world. Not a great time to start a business! Making lemonade out of lemons and in an effort to not leave the machine idle, I have decided to start making cloth face coverings. A win-win. I can learn my machine and create something the world will need in the near term. Thank you for visiting my shop!
