In 2003 the mother/daughter team of Kitty Ammons and Michelle Stewart formed the business known as Mom and Me Custom Embroidery in Destin, Florida. It didn't take long for Kitty to become known as "Mom" and Michelle as "Me". They also became well known for their custom design work and exceptional customer service. After four wonderful years, the opportunity arose for the sale of their business and since Kitty was looking forward to retirement with her husband, and Michelle had a young family of her own to raise, they decided the time had come to sell. But, life does not always follow the path set by oneself. Kitty's husband , Michelle's father, Ernie developed lung cancer and passed away in 2009. At this time, Kitty was also caring for her 90 year old mother, so she decided to pursue operating an embroidery business out of her home. The home business was a success and Kitty was quickly outgrowing her space. The original business Kitty and Michelle had sold was no longer in operation in Destin so upon the death of her mother, Kitty decided to open a storefront again where she could offer the same custom embroidery work as well as offering monogrammed gifts. Although the original embroidery shop had been a full scale production operation, Kitty's passion had always been the smaller custom monogram work so, Monograms by Me & Mom was born. Michelle came back into the store full-time in 2013 when quilting and fabric sales were added to Monograms. They both love what they do and love doing it for the best customers ever!
