Entrepreneurship has been part of my life since 2011, when I launched my first business, but I have been a creator for much longer. There hasn't been a time in my life when I wasn't making things—drawing, writing, or sewing. But there were times when doing so was difficult.
One of those times was in 2013, when my business closed, I was struggling with college, and my long-coming diagnoses weighed on me. But then, someone suggested something radical to me, and everything changed.

Multiway patches are embroidered two to four to a hoop, and wraps one at a time, by one of three Brother PE770 embroidery-only machines. The machines stitch out about 2 million stitches per month, using about 10 thousand metres of thread, for an average of 70 patches each. Each embroidered item is washed, trimmed, and heat-sealed to ensure its longevity once it reaches you!
Similarly, vests are constructed of durable materials and assembled in layers to ensure strong seams: the base is first sewn to the lining, and then the top and base together, and then the binding encases the raw edge, ensuring 3 layers of stitching to hold your vest together.
