I am the 25-year-old owner of Madi Stitches! I'm originally from CT, went to college in UT, and now living in KS. I started embroidering my senior year of high school when I was handed a kit at a church activity. Finding myself unemployed in the summer of 2020 and waiting for school to begin, I decided to full invest in embroidery as a side hustle. I quit several of my student jobs after it took off, and, after graduating, went full-time on the business after a viral Tik Tok. I love any and all crafts, movies, cooking, writing, and planning parties.

Madi has been my boss since I entered the world three years after her :) I’m studying in Utah to become an elementary art teacher, so I love to do any forms of arts and crafts and am obsessed with anything van gogh or matisse. I also love watching movies, dressing up, thrifting, singing, and learning guitar!

Hi, I'm Emma! I am a university student studying studio art and I hope to go into art education. For me, what is so interesting about embroidery is the long tradition of female-identifying artisans finding a place in art communities through textile arts. I love being empowered by their legacy.

I have always been artistic, so when quarantine hit last summer, I picked up an embroidery kit to keep me occupied in my house. I watched a few tutorials and I started making patterns and I embroidered all year long. I love embroidery because a beautiful art piece is made from only thread and fabric.
