your opinion and giveaway
This one of my sock monkey patterns digitized and stitched out on a shirt by Peggy Johnston of SEW CREATIVE, Peoria Heights, IL and if anyone is interested, we were thinking she could have the digitized pattern available at her store, then eventually on my blog and hers if she gets it up and running.
I want a shirt with the monkeys on it!!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE ABLE TO PUT IT ON YOUR OWN SHIRT?
Several people over the years have asked me if I had ever digitized my designs for embroidery machines, but I did not have the ability nor know anyone who could/ or would do it for me. As a hand embroiderer, machine embroidery did not hold all that much appeal to me, so I never pursued it but now Peggy Johnston of Sew Creative in Peoria Heights IL kind of posed that same question in a different form to me. She had already digitized one of my designs for herself and sent me a picture of what she did and wanted to know if we could collaborate on digitizing my designs......... Now I only do hand embroidery but a lot of people are really into machine embroidery..........Are you an embroidery machine owner and would you like to be able to buy my designs digitized for machine embroidery? She has had a lot of people come through her store and have requested the design she put on this shirt. So now she wants to know if we could sell them as a joint effort. You can email either of us if you are interested too.
This is the cover for the pattern she started with
So what do you think? Should I do it or not, ? .....just curious if you are interested, what embroidery format do YOU need or use?? Have any of you done that with your designs and what is fair for sharing the profits?? I am a fish out of water when it comes to machine embroidery.
