Maddie Kertay is Mother, Embroidery Designer and Sewing Teacher. She is owner of Stitchology, a private sewing lounge and school in Chattanooga, TN. She has been sewing since she was nine and snuck in to use her mother’s Bernina sewing machine; she has never looked back. From sewing for her six children to sewing for the home, if you don’t see her with at least a little bit of thread hanging off of her she must be going somewhere very important! You can find her blogging daily at
