About my embroidery process
All work takes place on one of my 100+ year old
hand controlled embroidery machines, not a computer
How I make a chenille patch
My design and fabrication process
1. Quote: Prices are based on the following, Embroidery size, design complexity, number of colors item being embroidered. I will provide a detailed quote with lead time once I have a design image and project scope.
2. Design: I can work with customer's artwork in most file formats and then print it to use as my refences while stitching, or draw original artwork (for additional fee).
3. Stitching: Chainstitch and Chenille is done in my studio on one of my 100+ year old hand guided machines.
4. Patch attachment: I offer patch attachment in several different styles.
