Laura knows how to get her monogram on, and she’ll be assisting with both our custom and web orders, and we couldn’t be happier that she’s going to be joining us in the studio.
I could wax poetic all day long about how awesome Laura is, but I’ll let her awesomeness speak for itself in the very fancy, very formal interview we recently conducted.
1. Tell us about yourself, Laura. Where were you born and raised? How did you get to Greenville?
I am a daughter, sister, sister-in-law, wife and mother which means I am very blessed!! I grew up in Anderson, South Carolina but was actually born in New Braunfels, Texas.
2. What are your favorite products that you’ve used with your kids?
Well I have a super soft spot for anything Aden+Anais. It is just so sweet and cuddly and of course is even sweeter with a monogram!
3. What was your first concert?
I am ashamed to admit that I had to think back to figure out if New Kids on The Block was first or Nelson (OMG!!), pretty sure NKOTB was first. And yes, I did go see them when they came to the BiLo Center a few years back!! Ha!
4. How did you get into sewing?
After I had my daughter in 2008 I realized the importance of having something personalized!! I wanted her initials on EVERYTHING!! I bought my first sewing machine only because it had an embroidery attachment and I wanted to know how to monogram her things. I watched a lot of You Tube videos and online tutorials and taught myself to embroider! So many people assume that I am a seamstress as well but that is the farthest things from the truth!! I can barely hem pants!
5. What’s your favorite font?
That is a very hard question!!! I love a lot of the fun curly fonts but I think the classic vine(interlock) monogram is hard to beat. It is just so timeless and everyone’s initials work well with it!
6. What’s the best part about Peekawhoo(shameless!)?
I love Peekawhoo because it is such a fun working atmosphere and really beats the heck out of me cranking out monograms in my closet by myself!! (It also doesn’t hurt that we all share the same love of good embroidery and mimosas!)
