Harry Jay

A fine artist as well as an embroidery artist, Harry has been delighting embroiderers with his eye for fine detail for almost 50 years. Artistic Director at Melco Industries, he was responsible for some of the most exquisite embroidery designs created in the early days of computerized machine embroidery.
Many of Harry’s creations have an unusual twist, and he is well-known for wildlife and Southwestern artwork and designs.

Interpretation of artwork for the digitizer by determining stitch types, angles, shading and other details make his skills a valuable asset. Some of his artistic transitions from artwork to embroidery are included here.

Harry enjoys his passion for Salsa and other Latin music with his wife, Alex. A popular DJ for the Salsa dance crowd in the Denver area, Harry is shown here with members of Santana, including group founder Carlos Santana.
