I joined the U. S. Army over twenty years ago to serve my country. During the early years of my career, I took up two hobbies, cross-stitching and sewing. I would make cross stitch projects and outfits for others and sell them or giving them away as gifts. As my career and life mature, I took a break from cross stitching and sewing to lead and train Soldiers, work in healthcare, get married, raise a family, and pursue my education.
Once the thought of retirement entered my mind after accomplishing all I could in the Army, I decided to start cross-stitching and sewing again. I started making items for others and was told you should start your own business since you’re about to retire. Light bulb moment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Across the Stitch was born.
