ON DECEMBER 11th SEW WHATS NEW AND YARN TOO IS PROUD TO PRESENT SONI GRINT
Soni Grint has been a sewer since she was 8 years old. Her embroidery career began when she combined her formal education (M.S., Optical physics, Computers) and her love of fabric and sewing. She started working with a sewing machine dealership in San Diego California. Moved to Central California where she worked for a short time for White Sewing Machines.
The real break through came when she was asked to be a part of Viking Sewing Machines Product Counsel in Husqvarna Sweden. She represented the market place expressing what people want in their embroidery and embroidery software. She traveled frequently to the product developers in both Sweden and London England. Soni lived in Jonkoping Sweden for 2 years as she headed up Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff's international education departments. After coming back to the United States she continued with her love of embroidery and sewing while heading up the software department of Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff, eventually becoming the Global Product Manager for this Division.
Soni now directs her own sewing, embroidery and software consulting business. She travels throughout the united states holding seminars and training sessions, sharing her joy of sewing with others.
