Embroidery?

Post by CP » 12 Mar 2015, 13:22

Does anyone know of a company/website etc, that would be able to embroider over things such as signatures on T-shirts, to preserve them so they can be washed??? :?:

I don't, but if you have a haberdasher's shop in your town then the owner might know of a seamstress who would do the work. Worth a try, if you can't find anybody else.

Do they HAVE to be washed - there's always "Febreze" instead ;)

Any saddlery will be able to tell you who does embroidery on horse nunmahs and rugs. That's what you need.
Penny and Freckles - the WArren Girls'
Star and Flopsy (the latter of the floppy comb) both members of the White Star Faction.
Fedora and Florence the Cream Legbars
Emily (see Emily lay) and Erica the Light Sussex babes
1 current husband aka the structural engineer
1 large organic allotment
The Lady Isabella Pickford-Fiennes, a feline of distinction and excellent mouser

After they've been in a mosh pit, believe me, they need washing! :lol:

Good suggestions, will have to find another saddlery as the one in Farnham closed a while back but there must be others around.

Thanks! ;)
