Mr. Hollick ,

Outstanding!

I just listen to the first episode and am very excited about this podcast. This is exactly the podcast I need now that I’m wanting to start my own embroidery business! The host is very easy to listen to and breaks everything down into easy to understand sections. Can’t wait to listen to more!!!

kimbroiderIt ,

FINALLY

I’m so excited about this podcast! I have an embroidery business and I always feel like I can’t find enough support and peers out there. I only started listening to this podcast yesterday and already I’ve joined a group and found two very helpful webinars. I’ve been searching for a podcast like this. Thank you!
