Elegant Monogramming was Born...

It all started as a hobby...a little sewing on the side. (or so I thought) Wow did it grow!!! Let me tell you how Elegant Monogramming was born:

I had been running childcare for about 17 years and I was happy with my job. I
girls cowprint dress on gold wallloved the kids...they were what kept me going :) My husband had been laid off and so I decided to take up some evening/weekend childcare & some sewing on the side to help make ends meet. I started making little dresses for the girls. One day, someone said, "you should sell these." And I thought to myself, "why not?"

So I began selling them on an e-commerce website. Shortly thereafter, I realized the high demand for monogramming the dresses. One thing led to another and I had an embroidery machine sitting in front of me. That was definitely a learning curve!!

I soon realized how many doors that opened up... so many things that can be embroidered, monogrammed, & decorated!!

I began making wedding handkerchiefs.

great gifts for the bride & groom to give to their family/friends. That was when I came up with the brand: Elegant Monogramming. We opened up in May 2012 and we're still here. Up until July 2015, we had our business in our garage, living room, dining room, & everywhere else, lol! Let's just say, it was truly an in-home business...

We finally decided to make the move to a storefont in Troutman, NC. Now, we are carrying different clothing lines including: Simply Southern, Charles River Apparel, & Life Is Good. 

We offer custom embroidery on all of our items on our website.. And for those you who want to stop by our store? We have the same merchandise available in store. BONUS!! You can bring in your own items to be embroidered too!!
