Hi, my name is Ann Sewell, owner of Ann’s Embroidery & Quilting. I developed a love for quilting from my grandmother at a very young age. Through adolescence and adulthood, I continued quilting and picked up hand embroidery along the way.
While my love and passion remained in embroidery and quilting only for myself, it was further down my life path that me, and my husband Gary, in 2003 bought our first commercial embroidery machine. Over the following years, we expanded our business with a second commercial embroidery machine, and then a third. Then in 2007, we expanded again with the purchase of our APQS Millennium long arm quilting machine with the add-on CompuQuilter digital quilting software and hardware. With this setup we were able to offer our customers high-quality computer-generated quilting. After CompuQuilter closed their door a few years ago, we upgraded it to an Intelliquilter system. This increased the functionally and features and offered more options for our customers quilts.
In 2012, we expanded again to offer Sublimation services. This high quality, photo realistic printing, allows customers photos and full color images to be placed on coffee mugs, clothing, metal, slate, and many other exciting surfaces. In that same year Ann's Embroidery also purchased a laser engraving machine that allows our customer images to be engraved on glass, metal, plastic, wood, and other materials. Next, we purchased a vinyl cutter to offer not only Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) for fabrics, but also sign vinyl services.
2020. After many years of using the SWF line of embroidery machines, this year we made a huge upgrade of all of our embroidery machines. We are proud to own the best embroidery machines made; ZSK. These machines are known around the world as the best machines made. Made in Germany to very high standards. these machines can operate at higher speeds with quality stitching.
As you can see, it is more than just embroidery. At Ann's Embroidery & Quilting, we have services and products to meet most customer’s needs.
