Pride of Workmanship Award

September 2013

Congratulations to Elizabeth Russell! Elizabeth took on the role of embroidery technician when Tastex purchased it’s first embroidery machine in 2008.

Elizabeth now operates 5 embroidery heads, digitises all new designs and continues to provide training and support for our supported employees who have intellectual disabilities.

Elizabeth’s achievements and exemplary work ethic were recognised when Elizabeth received a well deserved City of Glenorchy Excellence Award for “Pride of Workmanship ” which recognises outstanding employees.

Elizabeth's award was presented by the Deputy Lord Mayor at The Glenorchy Civic Centre.

The City of Glenorchy Excellence Awards are a joint initiative of the Rotary clubs of Moonah Claremont and Glenorchy, the Moonah and Glenorchy Business Association, and the Glenorchy Council.

When Tastex purchased its first embroidery machine 5 years ago, we faced a huge learning curve. We needed to master the art of embroidery within a short space of time. Elizabeth was already employed as a seamstress and was keen to take on the task.

During the past 5 years, Elizabeth has become more than proficient in the operation of the embroidery machines. She has also learnt the art of digitising. Elizabeth can digitise any design, even the most complex. Elizabeth can convert virtually any design or scanned image into a format that the embroidery machines can  transfer to knitwear and uniforms.

Elizabeth's skills and artistic flare have resulted in Tastex being able to offer our customers a high quality embroidery service.

In addition to her role as Embroidery Technician, Elizabeth is also a valued member of our Support Staff Team, holding Certificate 3 in Disability Care. Her versatility, enthusiasm and loyalty to Tastex is invaluable!

Embroidery technician, Elizabeth Russell, can convert virtually any design or scanned image into a format that the embroidery machines can  transfer to knitwear and uniforms.
