Aubrey James
Professional Summary
About seventeen years ago, my mentor and boss told me I was hired at the Viking Sewing Gallery because of my enthusiasm.
Within a year at Viking,  I had been recognized and rewarded for my sales and profit achievements, became an "Elite Trainer" for the company and traveled the country as an educator and sales star.
I opened and operated several new stores and helped create sales and training documents still in use today.
I was chosen to appear on the home shopping networks of QVC and HSN as the sewing machine representative.

My enthusiasm and love for the sewing and craft industry is what continues to motivate me and the people I meet everyday.
