Meeting Pam Shuler…the artist behind Shuler Studio

In our corner of the monogramming world, we have recently enjoyed stitching out the Monogram Chic Embroidery Collection by Shuler Studios.  Classic, yet up-to-date is how we describe this two letter interlocking monogram embroidery font.  From our linen Weekender Duffle to our flange pillowcases to our Canvas Collection, we have loved it in every two letter initial combination that we tried.  And of course, we do have our favs!


One of the highlights of July 2018 Atlanta Market was meeting Pam Shuler.  And yes- we were honored to have Pam in the MSC Showroom!  I mean really…If you love monograms as much as we do, then you truly understand our excitement in meeting Pam.  Pam was so gracious, very sweet and oh so humble about her talent!

Like many success stories, Shuler Studios is a second career opportunity for Pam, born out of a passion for monograms and what she knows!  Pam’s mother was a monogrammer, (when monogram machines took up an entire room) and who monogrammed everything the family owned!  Remembering her mom’s old block, script and diamond fonts, Pam began to study fonts and the digital side of monogramming. We are so glad that you did!

Pam, we are sure that your mother would be so PROUD and AMAZED at all the beautiful places that your monogram styles are now appearing! Thanks for sharing your love of letters and monograms with us!

Here’s the Dish…On making a special gift for Mother’s Day!

Flowers for Mother’s Day and a container that is beautiful after the blooms fade!

Recycle, Reuse and REPURPOSE!  Use your imagination and make a wonderful dish garden or centerpiece with something you might have in your kitchen!

Here at MSC, of course, we have our newest Whitewash Bow Collection, perfect for all the spring flowers that are blooming in our local garden shop! We could not resist the petunias, vinca, impatiens and daisies for the bread basket, serving bowl and the pitcher!

 

After choosing our plants, we lined the bowl with fine mesh wire that we also found at the plant shop.  We used this since our breadbasket bowl had holes.  It is not necessary if you don’t have holes in the dish you are using.

In our serving dish, we actually left the plants in the pots and covered with moss!  Giving the plants like this allows Mom to plant the plants wherever she wants, keeps your hands clean and mom’s new dish is not so dirty!

It helps to have a great potting table like this as well!  Thank’s to Keiko’s Dad for this fabulous work space! Potting Bench 2

Now, for the finishing touches to the arrangement, we added Spoon Markers!  They come with FUN sayings (Born to Garden, Free Weeds, Water Me, You are my Sunshine, Grow Dammit & Bloom Dammit) or Herb (Rosemary, Thyme, Basil, Sage, Dill & Thyme).

Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms!
