Hello! My name is Serena Nabeta and I am owner of Embroidery Treasures. I love anything and everything that involves sewing and fabric! My desire to sew started small and grew into something I love doing every single day!

 
As a young girl, my first attempt at sewing came from my Grandmother. Whenever I would visit her, a bag of quilt scraps was brought out with a needle and thread. I would spend hours hand stitching various shaped scraps together. This grew into designing and stitching doll clothes. As time flew by I would be found clipping pictures from magazines and creating various outfits for my dolls. My first business endeavor "Serena's Frocks & Frills" was developed. I sold doll outfits varying from cowboy costumes to bridal gowns, totaling over 20 styles of clothing.
 
At age 16, I began working in a fabric store. Not only did the store sell fabric, notions and Bernina sewing machines, but also specialized in custom sewing. I was able to learn many things about the fabric and sewing machine industry. The custom sewing varied from simple alterations of pants and jackets to altering and making formal dresses and bridal gowns.
 
A year later, I was able to purchase my first embroidery/sewing machine -
a Bernina artista 180e. I fell in love with machine embroidery.  My addiction grew by adding digitizing computer software and more machines. Now I could design, stitch and embellish whatever idea was swirling in my head. I was delighted!!
 
In February 2002, I began teaching sewing and embroidery classes. I discovered another area where I could create and design projects and share my love of sewing and embroidery with others. My classes consisted of basic sewing, quilting, embroidery and computer software techniques. Showing others the possibilities that can be attained through designing, quilting and embroidery is very rewarding!
 
So in February 2006, I started this website. My desire is to provide fellow stitchers with quality fabric, notions, embroidery supplies and helpful patterns and books. Not only do we seamstresses need the tools to create projects, but also inspiration. You'll find helpful tips and ideas with project photos to keep your mind flying with possibilities.
 
I am so thankful for the talent of designing, sewing and teaching that God has given me. Thankfully, God has also given me the support of my loving family, who continue to give me their opinion - whether good or bad. Thank you to those who taught me many techniques along the way!  And a special thank you to those ladies who sat through my first few classes when I was still learning the art of teaching.  Because of the encouragement and inspiration I received, I can now pass that knowledge on to others.
 
I hope you enjoy browsing through my pages! Please feel free to email me with questions, suggestions or your own project ideas. Sign up to receive my free email newsletter, packed with projects, tips and fun ideas! Visit my blog to see my latest project and ideas that I am currently creating!
