How many of you would like to turn your hobby into a money making business? That is exactly what April McKinion did!
April learned the wonderful art of sewing from her beloved grandmother. She grew up spending many hours behind a sewing machine helping her grandmother create home decor items for decorators and the public. After leaving for college, she never thought she would sew again. Thankfully she was wrong! It took over 12 years, but April found her way back to sewing. A few years after being reintroduced to her love of sewing, April decided to buy an embroidery machine. Her creations became popular, and after having several people from out of state contact her about purchasing embroidered products, she thought it was time to take the leap and start Stitches by April.
Stitches by April is an online company that offers an abundance of embroidered products, and then some. Some of the various products they carry include monogrammed pens, totes, bags and drink ware, as well as embroidered diaper bags, bibs, burpies, sippy cups, aprons, pillow cases and much much more!
Stitches by April uses Email Contact to send out monthly newsletters to inform their customers of new products, special sales and coupons. April says, “Email Contact helps me easily and effectively communicate with my customers to encourage repeat business, and then giving opportunities for interested customers to see and hear what we are all about and what we have to offer.”
