The love of designing...
Hello! I'll start off by introducing myself, I'm Katie Lyons. I have been a part of Etsy since 2008, but have only recently started this shop - Katie Designs. My husband bought me an embroidery machine for a present one day, and then we decided to also get digitizing software so I could make my own designs. Well, once I started making designs I couldn't stop! They are just way too much fun to make! So I decided I would start selling my designs so others could enjoy the fun of them as well.
I absolutely love the whole process; getting an idea for a design, drawing it, digitizing it, and then having it tested and changing it until it's perfect. And I love even more seeing what others make with my designs! That is best part! It makes me so happy to see pictures of what people have created using one of my designs.
I would say my two favorite types of designs are In The Hoop and Redwork. It's so fun to be able to actually make a product using mainly your embroidery machine. And I love designing redwork because it really gives me a chance to work on my drawing more and it's just fun watching it stitch out after I worked so hard to reduce the jumps (or make it so there are none).
I do have a group of fantastic test stitchers that test out my designs and help me tweak them before they even go up for sale. I think that this is one of the most important parts in creating my designs to insure that you are getting the best design possible!
I am very convo friendly and love talking with my customers! If you ever need a design customized for you, let me know. I love making custom designs! And if there is a design I don't have in my shop that you would like, message me and I will make one up for you.
I hope you enjoy looking around my shop and if you have any questions or comments, send a message my way!
Thanks for looking!
