One of her April Forshee’s first memories of creating stuff was getting into trouble creating paper dolls in school. But that did not deter her. At 7, she learned how to sew and she kept doing it. She even went to high school and took sewing.

When it was time for college, she chose Georgia Tech and took accounting to make sure she could find work. (She had a son at age 19.)

The corporate accounting career started out fine.

But then, she gave it all up 6 months before the 2008 financial crisis. She was tired of picking up her small son at 6 pm and siting in traffic for hours each week.

She substitute taught math and science, but never gave up sewing. April made some aprons for her mom’s yard sale and sold nothing. She told her friends and family the the story and they started buying them.

So she started Forshee Designs (and recently Marietta Monogram) and never looked back.
