Founder of Stixxie
I grew up in the former GDR.
Unfortunately, since we didn't always have such cool clothes as the west, I started sewing early.
At the age of 14 I taught myself this great hobby on a Singer pedal machine. First to prettify my clothes.
Later, I loved to sew children's clothing from cotton sheets and muslin diapers.
I sold these at village festivals.
I started creating my own patterns and sewing for my children.
Today I already sew for my grandchildren.
In 2013 I felt the need to decorate the sewn pieces with embroidery. I had the idea of using my self-made drawings for it.
So it happened that I bought an embroidery machine and professional software to make my idea a reality.
I have now digitized hundreds of images (not just my own) to make them available to like-minded people in my shop.
