As you can guess, my name is Christine Taylor and I am the Owner of Christine Taylor Designs, a Canadian custom embroidery and gifts business. About 12 years ago I traded in my job in Human Resources at a large retail company to stay home and raise my newborn Son. I started making some quilts, blankets and other sewn items for my Son and as gifts for friends who were having babies. One of my friends suggested I start selling these items. Christine Taylor "Quilts" was born. After many years of selling baby rag style quilts I started looking at other items to add to my product line. About 6 years or so later I bought my first multi needle embroidery machine and started stitching on stuffed animals. I changed the company name to Christine Taylor Designs to better represent the work that I was doing with these new products.
Here we are many years later and the personalized stuffed animals are still my number one seller! My mission for all of these years has always been to provide top quality handmade items that will stand the test of time. I am a Mom of 2 myself and I know how hard it is to find unique personalized items that are well made.
I am a bit of a perfectionist and nothing goes out the door until it is perfect. I have a few shelves in my office where the not so perfect items reside. Sometimes the stitching on these little fellas doesn't quite work out, wrong colors are used in error or the design just doesn't quite line up, whatever the case these guys stay right here in my shop and a new one is stitched out. Everything I sell is sourced by myself and is tested by my family (and friends) before it is ever listed for sale on my website.
