Sandpiper Embroidery





          We are an award winning team of embroidery enthusiasts. Over the past 22 years, we have won nineteen national and international awards including the 1995 Stitch-Off and the 1998 Punch Bowl. Our goal at Sandpiper is to produce realistic designs that have dimension, texture, and blended thread colors.

          Sandpiper Embroidery has been providing stock designs to the commercial and home embroidery industry for the past ten years. All of our designs are tested or sold in our own retail store before they are included in our catalog. We hope that what sells for us will sell for you. Run ability and pliability are very important.

          Owner, Ginny Fineberg, is well known for her column in Stitches Magazine, Saving Nine and is a regular contributor to such publications as Stitches Magazine and Impressions Magazine. She is highly regarded as a speaker at industry trade shows for her seminars Tips and Tricks, Placement, and Merchandising. She is readily available by phone and shares her twenty-three years of experience as a consultant.


          Art Director, Kathy Ostrander, is a self-taught artist. She started at Sandpiper as a machine operator for the first 6 years and has been digitizing for the past ten years. She was named a "Digitizer of Distinction" in its first year of conception. She is available for custom digitizing and is the producer of all our stock desgns.

We can produce almost any format for you on 3.5" floppy disc or CD. We do not produce a condensed version. However, if you like something in our catalog, but want it enlarged or reduced, just ask.

          When you receive a design from us, we give you actual color suggestions we have used and suggest a fabric color the design works well on.

           When you succeed, we succeed!

          Padre, COD (Chief Operations Dog) at Sandpiper Embroidery. Most people who know Sandpiper are familiar with our store mascot and ambassador, Padre. He grew up at the store with our Art Director, Kathy Ostrander, as a Seeing Eye Puppy Project. While in training as a Seeing Eye Dog, Padre had an episode that caused him to change careers and he returned to our Art Director's family and his Sandpiper family to reside in Cape May County and be the shop mascot. For thirteen years, Padre was a living fixture at the store and a favorite among customers who often came just to see him. He also assisted in raising nine Seeing Eye puppies at Sandpiper during his career as an embroiderer. On May 26,2002 Padre succumbed to Lymphatic Cancer at the age of fourteen. He is sorely missed by all those who loved and knew him. He was a kind and gentle spirit that will be with us always.

          Several years ago Ginny Fineberg, owner of Sandpiper, started a fund in Padre's name to help children and puppies of  P.P.A.W.S. 4H Club (Padre's Club). Funds are used to hold activities, train and expose their puppies, and for the children to travel as ambassadors for 4H and The Seeing Eye. Donations may be made in memory of Padre or a favorite per to the Padre Fund through Sandpiper.

          Tax deductible donations should be made to P.P.A.W.S. 4H Club and mailed to Sandpiper at the address below. An acknowledgement will be sent from the club.
