 Cindy Hogan

Cynthia’s Embroidery began as a home based embroidery business in the late 1990’s and has grown from there. Around 1996, Cynthia bought her first home embroidery machine and began producing shirts and garments for the school where she worked and for her friends. She quickly outgrew that machine and purchased the new Brother 8200 and PE-DESIGN Version 1 software sight unseen after reading the spec sheets.

She was so determined to learn the software and what makes it tick that her local dealer offered to let her teach it after she had figured out how the software operated. Since then she has never looked back. She taught herself the software and then began to teach it to others. As a Special Education Teacher, this was a natural fit. She taught at the local dealer in the evening, taught school during the day and wrote instructions and workbooks for the software in her spare time.

In the meantime, the interest in PE-DESIGN kept growing all over the country. Cynthia began to teach at local seminars on the subject. When she and her husband moved to Michigan in the Fall of 2003, she decided to switch careers and educate others on PE-DESIGN as her job instead of her hobby. In the Spring of 2004, Brother International contacted her to introduce the Version 6 of the software to their dealers in Anaheim California at their Back To School event.

Things took off from there. She has had the pleasure to introduce Versions 6, 7,8 and the Newly release PE-DESIGN NEXT at the Brother Back to Business events as well. The company rarely does piece work anymore. It is focused on providing the best and easiest to understand education materials for the PE-DESGIN software. Their goal is to meet your PE-DESIGN Software education needs and to provide quality instruction.

“As the owner of Cynthia’s Embroidery, it is my privilege to have found a career that I love and am passionate about. Not everyone can say as much about their job. It combines the best of two worlds, my love of software and my love of teaching. I hope to see you at a seminar in the future!”

Linda also managed one of the BERNINA Corporate stores before becoming a BERNINA Educator in 2005. All of these experiences have allowed her to increase her knowledge and skills while having the opportunity to work with the best. Linda’s goal is to share her love of sewing and the BERNINA brand. Sewing began as a hobby, then evolved into an obsession and now is her career. She is constantly looking at what everyone is doing in the sewing world as she searches for new information and inspiration.
