am Mariaan from Artistic Designs and live in Johannesburg, South
Been married for too long to remember, three adult children,
Lorraine, Martin and Derrick and three beautiful granddaughters,
Anemieke,4, Gabrielle,2 and Lynette, 2 months old. I'm taking care
Anemieke and Lynette during the day. Gabrielle lives in England
with her parents, I miss them every moment of the day.
My love for sewing started at a very young age and still love
every moment I spend in my sewing room. Bought my first Husqvarna
embroidery machine in 1995. In 1999 I med Elsa from Elsasdesigns
who was my inspiration to digitize my own designs. Two years
later and lots and lots of tears I could call myself a Digitizer,
and still learning every day since. In 2001 I opened my own
website where Jackie, owner of Oregon Patchworks discovered me and
ask me to be part of OPW. A big thanks Jackie.
