All Stitched Up By Angela

Instructor / Vendor

Read Bio

I have been sewing since I was six years old. I’ve always loved to do crafts and enjoyed teaching and sharing my passion with others. When I was thirteen years old, I taught my mom to sew, she is the person on the left in the photo. It was wonderful to be able to work on crafts and sew together with my mother. Eventually we both were hired at a local fabric store and were able to work together for several years. 

My mom passed away from breast cancer in 2007 and sewing has become a therapy for me to deal with her loss. I love going into my fabric room and sewing. The colors and textures of the material evoke many wonderful and comforting memories of time spend with my mom.

I started All Stitched Up as a way to share my love for sewing and quilting with others and to keep the memory of my mother alive in my heart.

Wife to Joe, mother to 3 and grandmother to 2 wonderful kids already aged 9 and 10! I love machine embroidery but prefer to digitize than to stitch. I love Embird software and teach it whenever and wherever I get the chance. I am experimenting with papercrafting and cutters.

Laser Bee Studio

Laser Bee Studio

Instructor / Vendor

Read Bio

Laser Bee Studio started from a love to create unique, handmade gifts using embroidery, vinyl and engraving. Our owners have been in the embroidery business for 20+ years. Machine embroidery gave us a great way to personalize items for customers. When the vinyl craze hit, we learned how to incorporate vinyl into our custom products. A few years back, we purchased a laser machine and expanded our products to include engravable items. After the need to find a way to organize our embroidery threads better, our exclusive thread drawer inserts were created. This opened the door for us to find more ways to create products to help sewing enthusiasts like us organize our sewing spaces better and more efficiently. We are so excited and humbled that our thread drawer inserts and project trays are helping so many customers!

As the “Heat Transfer Sublimation” market made significant adjustments in the late 1990’s, we got involved had to make similar changes in technology of heat transfers/sublimation. We started as ribbon dye-sublimation printers know evolving into liquid ink sublimation printing.

The education we received along the way has been extraordinary. Working directly with, manufactures, importers, technical departments was an experience, with beta testing and so much more we just knew the industry was going to EVOLVE!

A little about me. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. I am a two-time bone cancer survivor. My two biggest heroes in my life are my gram and my momma.

Back in 2018 I started teaching how to do all things Sublimation, where I became known as the Sass Master. During this time, I found a tribe of people who just like me wanted to know they were not alone. We would cheer on each other’s successes and help fix our mishaps.

The one thing I genuinely enjoy is watching other businesses grow. I love that my small business is helping other small businesses flourish.

I’m a crafter, dog lover, DIY enthusiast, wife and follower of Jesus. I’ve spent most of my life creating and looking for my next project. I met the love of my life when I was 19 and married him at 23. Marketing and social media is my career and crafting is my passion.

I’ve spent the last few years creating video content and teaching about Silhouette CAMEO on YouTube and at conferences. My career has taken me all over the country and lead me to so many new friends.

I’m just like you. Glowforge and Silhouette were both new to me at one point, but I love the challenge and the thrill of making something new. I promise you I’m not perfect, but I’m pretty sure you’ll learn something even if it’s from a mistake I made.

This website is a passion project for me. I love to create with my Glowforge and Silhouette and I want to share it with you. This is my biggest journey yet and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was a young girl. I had drifted away from sewing as my life changed but it was always there … in the background, surfacing when needed. As my boys grew up ,I returned to sewing for fun and “therapy.” I purchased my first embroidery machine and embroidery software over 20 years ago and have not slowed down since! Adding electronic cutters to my sewing was a natural step!

I am a Martha Pullen Licensed instructor and a Terri Johnson Creates Licensed instructor and travel around the country sharing the love of crafting … watch for me at All Things Silhouette, Original Sewing and Quilting Expos, Appliqué Getaway, Everything Embroidery Market and other events in your local area!
