Embroidery is a timeless art form that adds a touch of beauty and elegance to any piece of clothing or accessory. Mai Yia, owner and operator of Daily Dainty, perfects this elegant blend of style and quality in every embroidered piece. Mai, based in Sacramento, CA., started embroidering during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic as a side hustle but has since turned it into her full-time job! She operates her small business from home, using her passion for embroidery to create designs that not only showcase her creativity, but also bring joy to people’s lives.

Whether you are a fan of embroidery or simply looking for a unique and special piece, Daily Dainty is the brand for you. With a focus on quality, creativity and customer satisfaction, Mai's designs are sure to inspire and add a touch of beauty to your life.

Tips from Mai for New Embroiderers

As a small business owner and experienced embroiderer, Mai has a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share. One of her tips for beginner embroiderers is to “Never compare your work to others and to start small, investing in tools as you go.” One of those essential tools that you will need from the get-go is obtaining the correct stabilizer. Stabilizers play a key role in the success of an embroidery design, and using the wrong type can make or break the final product.

At Daily Dainty, Mai takes great care to ensure that each piece of embroidery is made to the highest standards, using only the best materials and techniques. Her favorite styles to embroider on are the Gildan G180 Heavy Blend and Jerzees 562 NuBlend crewneck sweatshirts, both of which are known for their durability and softness. Her shop is often full of custom-decorated pullover sweatshirts, beanies and caps. Popular designs among customers of Daily Dainty include anime-inspired characters, inspirational quotes and highly-traveled vacation destinations.
