After spending many years in the software design and consulting work force (and to be honest, I’m still in it – not retired YET!) I decided to work on ideas that would keep me occupied and still bring in a little $$$. I’ve always been fascinated with the advances in computer embroidery systems and being a computer programmer myself was attracted to the whole concept.
In 2014 I took some classes and studied the art of machine embroidery design. Although I’m just starting to produce my own designs I did get the hang of producing all kinds of embroidered items.
So here I am – starting small but hoping to expand over the coming years. I currently have a number of Christmas and holiday related items that include free standing lace snowflake ornaments, embroidered bookmarks, fancy door hangers, keychains, etc. I will also be selling some quilts, table runners, wall hangings, mug-rugs and more.
In addition, there are downloadable machine embroidery design files, in all the popular machine formats, custom designed by Maryland Fiber Arts and ready for you to stitch out!
Finally, I recently decided to make my astro photos available through my web store. If you have an interest in some beautiful amateur astro photos imaged right in my backyard in Reisterstown, MD, check what I have available by selecting “The Astrophotography of Michael J. Mangieri” on the main menu. The prints on metal are ‘out of this world’!
Need something special? Contact me about custom design work. And in the future I will be adding long-arm quilting services.
So check out the offerings and see if there is something you like. And, of course, spread the word!
