Hi there!

I’m Aly, a mom of two girls and a very part-time eye doc married to another eye doc.

I’ve been sewing since I was a child and machine embroidering since my first daughter was born.

I was once a beginner, and I know how hard it was to find the resources to learn to use my machines to their full potential!

On this blog, I share sewing and machine embroidery tutorials and project ideas. Read more about me or follow me below.
