“I design each of my patterns based on how I want the finished product to look. Once I've decided on placement and colors I start free-hand stitching the embroidered design.”

Accompanying her husband during his business trips is an activity that Raechel doesn't mind in the least — as long as she can bring her sewing machine along, that is. A life of constant traveling left the stitcher with a lot of long afternoons, just waiting to be filled with embroidery. And so she doesn't bat an eye at carrying along an extra suitcase just for embroidery floss — for Raechel it's a welcome outlet for creativity. Each and every colorful wristlet she fashions has been built and embroidered on the road. Guess you could say they've got their own stories, too.
