The Stargazer Story
Owning my own business is a dream I thought was impossible. I got into the Embroidery business in 2004 working for a company in Melbourne, Florida. I operated many embroidery machines there and ended up falling in love with the work I was doing.
After several years of working there, I moved to Titusville, Florida and began looking for work in the area. I didn’t want to do anything else except Embroidery! The years of experience I gained in the previous job paid off and I was immediately hired at the first place I applied.
But, I was laid off shortly thereafter due to business being slow and experienced two more layoffs after that at other companies. I was determined, though, and confident I could do better.
In 2011, I started working from home while going to school. I earned my degree and business from home was going well!
I decided it might be better to get an actual shop. And from there, the business has grown. Stargazer has grown bigger than I ever thought it would.
I will always be thankful to the two people who got me started. Michael Noakes, a stranger who my friend Juliet Collura introduced me to. He was selling an embroidery machine back then but I could not afford it. He let me make payments. If it weren’t for that opportunity and his kindness, I may have never started the business. To this day, I still thank him and my good friend Juliet who is also my technician here at Stargazer.
Today, the business is run by my husband Sean and I. We are a good team! The business focuses on quality products at an affordable price and excellent customer service. We treat our clients like they are our friends. We will always focus on small business and stay humble.
