About Windstar Embroidery Designs

Deb Schneider

Hi! I'm Deb Schneider. With my husband Tom and two very spoiled cats and Winston, an equally spoiled miniature dachshund, we own and operate Windstar Embroidery Designs in the heart of Central Illinois.

I am a machine embroidery design digitizer and I love every minute of it! The creativity of embroidery digitizing is, in a word, fun. Though many hours of digitizing are often required before I feel a design is ready for a test sew-out and many tests may be done before a design is offered for sale at, it's always a labor of love.

Whatever the embroidery design style I make certain each and every design stitches out smoothly, efficiently and beautifully for you. Your complete satisfaction with your finished embroidery art is my primary concern.

Embroidery digitizing is not an instant gratification process. You can't simply push a button in a program and watch a perfect machine embroidery design pop out. It takes time and attention to detail but the reward of creating something unique and beautiful and fun and then watching it stitch out is worth every late supper.
Read what our customers say!

I create, digitize, test sew-out and refine each design added to the inventory not for its potentially high marketing value, but simply because I like it. I hope you find a few (many!) you like, too.

I digitize with APS-Ethos and embroider with a Brother PR-600.

If you have any questions or comments about the designs, please contact me.

Thank you very much for visiting. I sincerely appreciate your business.
