Mary decoration offerings are embroidery, heat transfer vinyl, rhinestones, vinyl decals, sublimation, patches and recently she added glitter spangle decoration. Along with all the machines, she has a lot of business coming in from Winnebago. Mary has enjoyed servicing the Winnebago School District but in the last two and a half years she has started receiving work from other areas.
