Thanks for exploring my website and allowing me to share and connect with you.
My name is Maggie Schnücker and I’m a fiber artist living in Central Texas with my husband, Christian, our Trout and our beagle, Georgia. I work from home creating nature inspired embroidery, patterns, and a Monthly Pattern Subscription.
2017 was a busy year that brought about a great deal of exciting and emotional changes for me. In the Spring, before graduating from college with my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on Graphic Design AND getting married, I was diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses, including Celiac Disease.
With my health concerns and struggles of working in front of a computer daily, I became burnt out and picked up embroidery as a hobby. I always enjoyed, and was missing, working with my hands and textures. Having explored pottery in the past, I entered the world of embroidery and quickly realized my passion for fiber art. By the end of the first week, I created stacks of embroidery hoop art! At 22, I began my love affair with all things embroidery. I share this with you as encouragement that if you are a beginner exploring embroidery for the first time, age doesn’t matter at all.
After exploring other jobs, I decided to focus on my fiber art full time. I am so thankful to have a deeply supportive and kind husband who has been my champion in me taking my art and creativity to new heights. I chose to sell my finished embroidery pieces and eventually patterns so that others could create along with me.
My embroidery became a way to share my art, cope with my health and connect with people in a way that I had never imagined. This has become the absolute best part of my business! I am doing what I love, making patterns, sharing it with people and connecting with others by sharing my story, all through my business.
I look forward to seeing what you have created.
