Q&A with owner, Emily Sanders
How long has your business been in operation? Almost 2 years!
How did you get started?
I started Em Broidery almost two years ago when I was looking for a creative outlet outside of my full-time job. Once I picked up my first needle and thread, I was HOOKED. I love the peace I get while I stitch and I love challenging myself to get better and better. My brother was one of the first people to tell me to open a shop, I was soooo shy about it at first! Honestly, after he texted that, I was IN! If I could impress my 11-year-old little brother, surely I could make customers happy, too right?! LOL!
What products can customers expect from you? Hand embroidered keychains, bookmarks, decorative hoops, hats, earrings, pins, canvases! Releasing NEW keychain and earring designs every week, and this season will have brighter designs for Spring.
What is your favorite product you offer?
It's actually a new keychain design...highly requested by my Twilight-obsessed shoppers...it's a keychain that says, "This is the skin of a killer," LOL.
What is one thing customers might not know about you/your business that you'd like them
Last year I stitched over 450 pieces!
Why do you think people should visit The Local?
I think The Local is a fun community of makers that colorfully represent the Bryan/College Station area. Not only does The Local give you an opportunity to shop your favorite keychain, lemonade, or pair of clay earrings, but you have the chance to engage with and support your small business family!
