Dear Valued Customers:
Its still a joy after thirty years for me to design new pins for Gymnastics, Figure Skating and Cheerleading. I found a new appreciation for Cheerleading and developed pins to show the beauty of the sport. There is also such beauty in a Gymnastic or Skating routines that create the body lines which inspire new designs for personal best routines. So much has changed in the past with our Gymnastics and Skating teams and the skill level of the sport has improved. My children were involved in both sports and that is the reason I was introduced to the sports I love so much..
Now they are all grown and I have the most amazing grandchildren which have a love for pins and the whole circle of life of pins continues. When I started there were no pins in Gymnastics, and I started with about ten pins thirty years ago. Today, we have around 1,000 pins in our collection.
Pins to me are like little precious bill board jewels to show people what you love best, especially to highlight your interests. They can represent an award for accomplishing some new skill or for celebrating achieving a new score or level. It can also mean the love of country for the sport you are involved.
For me, once I attended my first Olympics, I was hooked and attended ten Olympics over the years. The many experiences will forever be remembered and because I was able to trade my pins and I develop new friendships. Seeing some of the most historic USA Team competition events in Gymnastics and Skating where athletes won gold at the Olympics always inspired me when I returned home.
Pins are like little pieces of history too. They capture a moment in time of your life and something to bring back good memories. I look at my pin collection with all the pins that I traded with other pin collectors over the years and have fond memories of friendships I made in another countries and here at home.
What brings me so much joy is when a young athletic says how much they like my pins and it makes it so worthwhile the time I have spend in developing a new designs for them.
I still consider my proudest moment in the history of this company was when we manufactured the pins for the USA Olympic Committee in 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics and the Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympics. I made the pins that were only given to the athletes and considered it a great honor especially knowing that also every country's Olympic Committee that participated in the Los Angeles Olympics received a collector set of pins from my company. On top of that, one of the sets was given to President Ronald Regan, which I hold as a great honor.
My husband and family has supported and encouraged me through the years and I am grateful for that. I love designing these little pins and found great satisfaction in creating new ones.
Please enjoy this new website which will allow me to add new and more unique and new designs to our collection. Thank you all for your continued support over the years.
