Family that embroider together stays together

This is such a great picture of some of our tribe in their native environment, that I just had to share. Look at the enthusiasm on those faces!!

Only trouble is, the sewing machine was supposed to be for her - but he's having as much fun as she is!!

Awesome display of teamwork from the whole family. Well done team!

Do you Price Match?

"Do you price match?"

"Of Course", says the unsuspecting shop keep falling into the setup perfectly.

"Here's an ad for Flannels at 5 cents / yard. And here's silk on for 35 cents. Stolen Silks wouldn't be cheaper than these!"

 

As they were renovating their turn of the century home, they came across a collection of well preserved newspapers dating back as far as 1896. What a great find! I snapped a couple of quick phone pics so I could share them here.

We were doing an EPIC install when the question came up.

Recognize the sewing table? It matched the colour on the walls so perfectly that we can be sure it went to a nice home (they literally have sewing ads in the walls). Have Fun with your new EPIC! And if you do want a price match, you'll have to find an ad no older than 30 DAYS.

 

Sew Much Fun!!!

The Pine Ridge Jean Jacket Revival has come to an end, so we would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to everyone who participated - we had SEW MUCH FUN!!! We had entries from kids and adults of all skill levels. The artistry is fantastic, original, stunning, and we're so proud of all the participants.

Check out the embellishments, the cutwork, the three dimensions, the colours. Really well done, we can't wait to see them out on the street and we're even more excited to see what they'll come up with next.

Quality never goes out of style ;)

 

Tony's First Embroidery

If you don't recognize the character in the image - you're probably not a skateboarder. Any skateboarder will instantly identify him as "The Ripper" from Powell Peralta. (See what I did there - Ripper, like Stitch-Ripper, ha ha, wink wink). Anywho I'm a big fan - I've been riding Bones wheels for as long as I've been searching for Animal Chin.

While this isn't technically my first embroidery, it IS the first time that I've embroidered a project of my own, (that I'm totally going to wear) including creating my own .VP3 file.

And I had a _lot_ of fun doing it.

I did a little Gimping with the image before importing into the Embroidery Software. The image was simplified to 4 colours, each colour was broken out into it's own layer, and then each layer was imported one at a time. Once all the layers were in, it was a simple matter to stack them back up, and export to .VP3. Then loaded that file into a Designer Ruby DeLuxe, which proceeded to stomp the stitch-out like Rodney Mullen stomps a kick-flip!

One of the things I figured out early on is that white can be tough to work with on screen - but the finished product is going to come out with whatever colour thread you loaded into the machine. That's why his face is blue on the computer.

And did I mention that Embroidery Software is on sale this month down at Pine Ridge Knit & Sew?

 

Ruby and Me

I can almost hear Yoda telling me to expect great things from this one.
