The Embroidery Forever Owners – Sharon and Dave Callaghan
Sharon Callaghan
Sharon has past exprience in the corporate clothing business. She owned a very successful screen printing business, which she sold before her family moved to Cape Town in 2003. The screen printing business was built on very simple principles:
  1. QUALITY
  2. PERFORMANCE
  3. DELIVERY.

Due to these very simple principles the business grew with very little marketing, but on word of mouth, which she feels is the most successful marketing tool. Her embroidery business will be built on the same principles and she invites you to try her new embroidery business.

More about Dave:

After having played three years of Nuffield cricket, Dave was chosen for the talented SA Schools team that toured England under the guise of the Albatrosses in 1983. This team included future National players in Mark Rushmere, Dave Rundle, Merrick Pringle and Darryl Cullinan.

Dave started his long and illustrious career for Eastern Province in 1984. He
played an important role in Eastern Provinces rise to success in winning the
Currie Cup for the first time in 1989 and the Treble the next year.

Dave started his international career in 1993/4 with tours of India and
Australia. He was to play many ODI’s, but was unfortunate not to ever play a
Test math. The highlight of his International career was the brilliant
undefeated 169 against New Zealand at Centurion Park in the 1994/5 season.

One of his many challenges in life was when he was diagnosed at 26 years old
with cancer. 15 months later after debilitating chemotherapy treatment that
left him temporarily bald, Callaghan returned to the cricket arena.

Dave is one of the few players who has played both rugby and cricket for
eastern Province. He partnered the great Danie Gerber at centre, before he
decided to devote all his talents to cricket.

Dave was not only a top class all rounder who took more than 100 wickets and
scored more than 7000 first class runs, he was also a always great team man.
