Who is this " Sunshine " lady?
Cheryl Schuler aka Sunshine of Hunter, North
In 1998 a machine quilting shop owner went
to a class on Brazilian Embroidery and an addict was formed. Sunshine started a
small retail BE shop, Brazilian Elegance, to help supply her addiction.
Demonstrating, hosting stitching groups, teaching and designing began. In 1999 Brazilian Elegance and JDR Brazilian Embroidery
became JDR Brazilian Elegance.
In January of 2000 Sunshine developed the web site:
, the first website
to bring Brazilian Embroidery to the world.
Sunshine, for JDR, develops her own designs
and purchases other designs and copyrights them for JDR-BE.
Sunshine writes/re-writes all of the directions and draws all of the
graphics for those designs – putting " Sunshine " in every design.
Sunshine does all the web work, promotion, advertising and marketing of all JDR's products.
Sunshine joined the BDEIG in 1999 and became extremely involved in 2001 when she
was elected to the position of Seminar Chairman Elect.
She was the Seminar
Chairman for the seminar that was held in June 2003. Some say it was the
"Best seminar they ever attended! ".
Two years of intensive work resulted in a seminar to be proud of!

promoting Brazilian Embroidery and the BDEIG!
Wrapped In Stitches and two other small companies were purchased and JDR expanded – exploded!
A few years ago, Sunshine purchased another company and will be re-introducing 35
wonderful designs that have been "missing " for several years.
