NNEP Co-Founder is Inventor!
Check this out -
Susan Ritchie, co-founder of the National Network of Embroidery Professionals (NNEP) is signing the patent application for the Embroiderer's Helper - Susan is listed as the inventor! Then Connie notarized it, and now on to the next step it goes - how very exciting!
Brent Taylor of Durkee Hoops is the one who figured out how to take Susan's idea, which has been used for over 20 years by many embroiderers, and turn it into a terrific, durable and affordable product. Nicely done Brent!
This new hooping placement template will be available through Designs in Machine Embroidery soon. We will update you as the process moves along.
Way to go MOM!
