Meet Michelle Ahrens National Training Specialist


Michelle’s passion for sewing, embroidery and quilting began with her grandmother who stitched for others during the depression, a mother teaching her how to sew, a sister-in-law on how to hand embroider, and a visit to a quilting museum to appreciate the beauty of quilting. Her lifelong experiences led her to create an embroidery business and work with others in commercial embroidery, from production to digitizing of designs. Michelle’s love of sewing brought her to Baby Lock as a Product Support Specialist where she was able to help many users on their various projects and as part of the Training Team will be able to continue to help others. Michelle also leads the Baby Lock sponsored Palette Community Facebook Group alongside Baby Lock Educator Mike Johns.
