Walter Floriani’s family has been involved in the embroidery process for six generations. Moving from Italy to the United States in the 1900s, the Floriani family brought with them the art of mechanized embroidery. Walter’s father was dedicated to producing unsurpassed methods of digitizing and machine embroidery, and his influence will long be an integral part of the commercial embroidery industry. Walter carries on the well-established family tradition with a different twist. Long considered the “Guru of Digitizing,” he teaches digitizing and embroidery not only to thousands of commercial embroiderers but also to home embroiderers.
