Our new Tajima 15 needle commercial embroidery machine will be delivered in the next couple of weeks. We are very excited! This machine will be more robust and faster. By adding a second machine, we are increasing our production capacity and decreasing our per piece embroidery time - making our pricing even more competitive. We will send out a quick email when it arrives if anyone is interested in coming by and taking a look!
In mid-March, we attended the National Network of Embroidery Professionals annual conference in Dublin, Ohio. What a great experience to be surrounded by other professionals in the decorated apparel industry and to learn about "What's New". We attended a class on all of the new decorative threads available for machine embroidery - including wool, soft metallics and even fire resistant thread. Classes on sales and marketing on the internet were also very interesting.
The wool varsity jackets with leather trim details by Holloway have been very well received. Each jacket is custom made to order, with hundreds of possible combinations in color and options. We are looking to increase our varsity jacket sales and this order has gotten us off to a great start!
