BTW, if no one has noticed, the machine used is a Brother PR620. I have searched for a online vendor that would list a price for it. haven't found one yet. It must be a EXPENSIVE machine, if ya gotta ask what the price is.............ya can't afford it..... ;)

Ron,

Neat graphic.

The machine in the video doesn't look like my hand-me-down Kenmore ... doesn't even look like my wife's new sewing/embroidering machine. Are you doing the embroidering for fun or to add to your offerings?

I've got a friend who made a pattern of the IKE emblem for my wife's machine. Found out how much work is involved in producing that type of pattern ... 23,000 stitches and a little over an hour on the home machine. Geez.

Cheers,
Tom

I would agree on how much time it can take to digitize some of the
embroidery files. Even if I get decent artwork beforehand it is still
very time consuming to get a professional result.

I spent 4.5 hours doing the Tennessee Wind Militia flyers logo last week.
I find that the automated digitizing part of most embroidery programs
are close to useless so I do it manually.

I done a few caps for Portsmouth last year with the Anniversary
Rev but mine stitch out on a cylindrical cap frame (900 GBP)
that moves the cap in and out and rotates it instead of trying to
make the cap flat to hoop it.

Just finishing Bartmans sweatshirt from the how many stitches quiz
later today. (Will post a few pics when done)

With all the doom and gloom on the news lately I feel another quiz
coming shortly. :blue-grin:

Glad you liked it. The machine being used is a commercial embroidery machine. It was actually running at a slower speed in the video. My company offers many different types of signage including screen printing as well as embroidery. It started out as fun but I've made a few hoodies and hats for some local flyers.

Hi Jeremy,

I will upload some samples of work to my Flickr account over the next
couple of days.

With embroidery, pricing usually consists of a one off setup charge to
digitize the original artwork and then an embroidering charge per every
1000 stitches thereafter, plus the garment.

With Revs I have digitized most for myself so there is no setup charges.

I will work out a few examples of prices for finished garments as well.




Regards



Dave :)

Can you make it a REALY difficult question please.

Something like "How many kites does Baloo have?" would be great.

Thanks.

Baloo -

That isn't fair. How about how many posts Baloo has, or how long has Baloo been a member. One hat for each correct guess.
