    Hatched In Africa consists of 4 hard working ladies: Santi, Liese, Cara & Mari. They all come from Middleburg, Mpumalanga in South Africa and are well known on the Internet for their quality digitizing and heirloom projects. It is also the home of the now very famous “Apricot Blush Quilt” and the OESD collection, Floral Delights 788, designed and digitized by Santi Nuss.

    They use various Brother & Bernina embroidery machines & use PE Design/Palette, Bernina Artista & Wilcom software.

    Santi specializes in Jumbo & Mega hoop designs & has a special knack for splitting designs. As she says: “How can you put a flower’s detail in a 4"x4" hoop?” Her shading techniques are also what make her designs so unique. Flowers & leaves have been her favorite hobby all her life & she really tries to express their beauty in her designs.

    They have a variety of quality & tested designs in all formats. Their collections range from fun stuff to baby & toddler designs, florals & leaves, quilt designs & some African people & animals. All sets include test & free designs.
