Hatched in Africa was started in May 2000 by Santi, her sister Mari and her daughter Liese. We live in Middelburg, Mpumalanga in South Africa.
Many years back Santi was a Sewing Machine dealer and soon after selling her store she started getting creative on her computer. She loves doing floral arrangements and so her digitizing reflected that. Soon her first designs were on the internet and so our journey began...
Allsorts Embroidery was started 2 years later by Cara and Betsi, Santi's daughter and sister. They have added a lot of creativity to our growing family.
Hatched Embroidery Fun was started in 2010 for more stock type designs and is also now part of our new big family website.
Santi became known for her Apricot Blush quilt and the book that was published. After that came the Jacobean Jewels and the ever famous Jaocbean Peacock done in 4 hoopings! Her multi-hooped designs are still popular and so easy to embroider.
Over the years we have made many friends and have helpers all over the world! The internet opened an amazing big world to us... we remember the days when embroidery designs were few and the software had it's limitations... we can't believe what the machines can do today! So much fun!
