Angie Ferer

Angie believes learning has no age limit.

"You’re never too old to learn!  When the home embroidery machines were introduced in the late 80s and early 90s, we encountered many older adults that were intrigued by the notion of being able to embroider at home," she said "Many times the opposition to being able to sell a machine would be, “I’m too old to learn how to do that!” I am a very blunt person, so I have a tendency to just say what’s on my mind [and] my common rebuttal to that comment would be, “when you stop learning, you’re dead!”

She said the consumers would laugh at her response, but in the end, they understood.

"I feel as if I could teach anyone how to work a machine, as long as they have the desire to learn."

Angie said her background as a high school teacher has helped her to discover the best part of teaching.

"I enjoy helping others discover the world of sewing and seeing the delight on peoples faces when they have created something that they are proud of."

She credited her mom for fostering and encouraging her love of sewing.

Never once did she try to stop me from being creative. I’m thankful for that," Angie said. "Sewing is a type of therapy for me, it soothes my soul when the world seems unkind."
