A Success Story Close to Home at ColDesi

How did you get started in your Business?

Many years ago I moved to Florida from Wisconsin and got hired on where my mother was working at the time in a choir robe factory. I ended up in the embroidery department and stayed for 16 year. After becoming a supervisor I really started to see the change in commercial embroidery machine technology. When I first started, the machines we used were still using papertapes, then they went to cassettes and then finally floppy discs.  After so long with that company I then decided I wanted to do my own embroidered apparel and went to work for a small company, and within 6 months I decided I had to have my own machine. In order to bring in some stable income while I got started, I took a job as a receptionist with ColDesi, where I bought my SWF embroidery machine. That just got me interested in doing rhinestones too! After I worked at ColDesi and saw the CAMS rhinestone machine and how much money people were making with them, I bought one! But the real news is that about 6 months after that I upgraded to the 1V-6P and was making enough to go back out on my own.

What technologies do you use?
I currently have 2 single head SWF machines, a compact 1501C and full size 1501T, a CAMS 1V-6P rhinestone machine with Hotfix Era software and a vinyl cutter.

Why did you choose those machines?
I purchased my SWFs because I wanted buy from a company that has been around awhile, has great customer support, and accessibility of parts. I have been very happy with everything at Coldesi since I bought my first machine from them in 2000. The same goes for my CAMS. One of the main reasons I upgraded from the 1V-2P to the 1V-6P within a year is that ColDesi offers a 100% trade up program so I didn’t lose anything on that initial investment.
