      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Emboiderer in Seattle area

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend an embroiderer in the Seattle area... I'm having a surprisingly thought time finding one that will actually respond to emails.

It's almost impossible to find production embroidery in the states. I just ordered a whack of patches from butler patches. I'll post up when I've gotten them.

 

you might try calling the industrial sewing stores and asking them who's got embroidery machines.

 

Also, the textile business doesn't go so well with technology. Good luck.

Try Shirtworks in Ellensburg. It might be annoying to mail the stuff, but I have no doubt they are on top of stuff, I used to work for them.

Our next door neighbor(in Sequim) has a custom embroidery business. She's good.

 

Robin Reese, Hummingbird Embroidery. Ph: 360-477-2269

 

Don't know if the email address I have is correct(she used to be based in Kent so it may have changed): hummingbirdembroidery@earthlink.net

slightly off-topic, but it's amazing how many businesses put some meager presence on the internet, then don't even have any employees who can answer emails, let alone pick them up.

 

I think if you're going to put up some form of website, it should reflect the sophistication of the business (shitty '95 looking site, silly flash-burdened site, smooth easy to navigate) and someone should actually be at the email box, and respond to every email when it comes in.

 

Otherwise, businesses should stay off the web. IMHO

Kat's got the beta. We used Shirtworks for our unit hats, jackets, and vests and they look great. But again, they're in E-burg, as she stated.

 

But I suppose they only use Nikwax, so WTF do I know anyway?
