My name is Shelley Cordes and I am a digital artist who has designed embroidery designs using my own original artwork. I have been embroidering for over 17 years using Bernina software and using designs from other design companies from around the world. I have studied the software from Bernina and other professionals in the industry. I have taught Bernina software in various dealerships in the Bay Area where I live and when BES6 was introduced, I decided to open my own studio and teach others who needed advanced instruction. I started to create my own designs when I noticed that most of the designs in the marketplace began to look all the same, small, simple, and un-original. I wanted to create designs that were big, bold, and had unique originality. My designs are distinctly artistic yet simple to stitch out. I started my own business to sell these big, bold, and beautiful designs on my own website. Thus was born: Embroidery Stitch Nitch.
I now have over 300 designs on my website and over 4,000 designs in my Portfolio. My designs are followed by people all over the world including, Australia, Canada, Portugal, Russia, and the United States. I was recently chosen to be one of the first artists to be featured in the new artist's blog: "Artsy Shark", which is a blog that features artists in many different medias from all over the world. I am excited to create and develop new artwork for designs every day. Watch as my designs fill the imagination, excite the senses, and bring fun to life.
