Snow Lady Designs
Snow has worked as a seamstress for over 35 years including
costume design for Galveston Mardi Gras and Texas
Renaissance Festival. Her love of embroidery started
with the purchase of her first embroidery machine in 1995
along with the scanning device for digitizing and she became
addicted to machine embroidery and digitizing. When
PEDesign became available the love of digitizing took off
like a rocket and has grown with each update.
Snowlady Designs opened in 2000 and quickly became known
for free standing lace designs with the look of hand
crochet. Allene loves sharing her passion for this
wonderful hobby so has been teaching at various
embroidery conferences and local shops since leaving the
corporate world in 2002 using visual lecture demos and
hands on classroom interaction.
all the children grown and moved out of the house, Allene
and her husband recently decided to live the life of modern
day gypsies moving all their stuff to storage and taking
to life on the road in a travel trailer. Moving
around the country has given her the opportunity to meet so
many more of you and Allene looks forward to continuing to meet
all of you as they travel around…

with only a few manual tools. In 2000, Carol won a commercial software
program at a trade show, and a new world opened up. Now she enjoys
creating designs both for customers and her favorite - the fun designs for
her web pages.
