Meet the owner of Creative Custom Embroidery


Creative Custom Embroidery has been fulfilling the creative needs of residents of Grand Forks, B.C., since 2007. Owner Amber Esovoloff does everything from custom embroidery to printing vinyl to t-shirts and so many things in between. Her passion became her job and she's thrilled to go to work every day.

What do you like most about your job?

I love being creative and watching a new idea, for instance, come out on a shirt.

What is your number one passion outside of work?

My kids are definitely my passion and I also love being crafty.

What was your first job and what was one thing you learned from it?

I worked at a pizza place and I learned that it would be a benefit to be self-employed.

Why did you choose to get into the embroidery business?

I love to quilt and I had a home embroidery machine and I loved it. I also had my daughter and wanted to be able to be home with her and still do something.
