Fantasy versus reality

Posted by Kate Thomas on Monday, February 23, 2015
We recently attended an industry trade show, where gigantic new embroidery machines whirred away, working on specially prepared designs. One particular design contained 116,000 stitches.
Whilst this is a superb platform for showing what the machines are capable of, in the real world it's just not viable to produce embroidered designs of such size and detail. The person running the machine estimated each garment would take over four and a half hours to embroider!
Our challenge is to create designs with equal impact, whilst ensuring garments are also cost effective, whatever your budget.
