What We've Been Working On: Rah Rah!

We've been busy bees this week.  first we tackled the throne cover project and then threw ourselves headlong into this cool triple applique project for a local high school's cheer leading squad.

We started with some die-cut shapes and letters made to resemble the lettering on the teams old uniforms.

We placed the bottom layer on the uniform and stitched it on along the outer edges.

We then added top embroidery to serve as a guideline for placing the next layer.

The middle layer is then lined up over the first...

and stitched along the edges.

An outline is then stitched on top as a guideline for letter placement and the letters are then carefully placed on top.

We then stitch around the edges of the letters

And with that we're ready to rock.  Go team!

What We've Been Up To: Dress Up Your Throne

Who doesn't need a throne?  Well, most of us probably get through life without one, I suppose.  But if you do happen to have one, shouldn't it be as regal as possible?  Otherwise, what's the point?  For the past few months, we've been working with the fine people at Samadhi Cushions in Vermont to embroider a very specific design for them onto silk shantung fabric which will be used as a throne cover.

First we spent weeks hand-digitizing the intricate designs they supplied us with.

Next we embroidered smaller elements of the overall design pieces of the overall design separately.

Then we had to place our mama- frame on our 4-head machine.  This frame, standing on end, is about 6 feet tall.  Needless to say, it is somewhat of a process getting it on and off our machine.

Some of the smaller pieces were then placed on the large fabric and appliqued on.

 We then enhanced the designs with top embroidery

The final Throne back

The Throne front   ( final except for center embroidered panels to be attached by customer).  

We'd love to  thank Jeanette and Michael at Samadhi Cushions for the opportunity to stretch our creative muscles on this project aver the past several weeks.  It's been a challenge and a delight to create this for you.

Brand Your Business: Turn the Page

Happy New Year, everybody!  We can't thank you enough for all your support this past year.  You've made our first year in our Cottage Street location a great one.  As one year comes to a close and another begins, it's a terrific time to reach out to your customers.  You might have even noticed some of your favorite suppliers and vendors sending a promotional item your way as a way of thanking you.  Don't you love getting that new calendar from the bank or oil company?  It's amazing how we almost rely on these annual gifts, but as times get tighter, you're seeing fewer and fewer given out.  Why not set yourself apart from the crowds by establishing your own annual tradition.  Your customers will love (and remember) you for it.  Need some more ideas of how promotional items can figure into this year's marketing plan?  Contact us today!
