Tell us a little about who you are and what you do:
We are a husband and wife team who loves what we do! Been in business since 2002 and just opened up a storefront last year. I carry products to accessorize the spangle and rhinestone apparel.
How did you get started?
When my daughter was young no one could meet the deadlines for embroidered apparel, thus Stitch and Dazzle began! We bought a commercial embroidery machine and ran our business as just an embroidery shop until 2009.
We added a CAMS Rhinestone Machine 5 years ago to both do just rhinestone tees and get into doing multi or mixed media designs.
What technologies do you use?
A lot! Computers with updated embroidery software and bling software, and sometimes separate applications to create different designs.
We've got 3 embroidery machines, a vinyl cutter, a CAMS Rhinestone Machine, rotary engravers, sequin machines and now a new ProSpangle spangle transfer machine.
Why did you choose CAMS and ProSpangle Bling Machines?
