Pretty much everything in my gallery is based upon MLP:FiM by Lauren Faust, so thank her and the animation team for everything. All the embroidery designs are up on my blog for free download, and can be used for making your own embroidered stuff. The designs may NOT be included in any embroidery collections, or hosted somewhere else without my permission.

I do comissions too.
Comission Details
Comission Status

These are the embroidery machines I currently have:
One of these: Brother 6800PRW Cost $350
One of these: Brother PE770 Cost $700
One of these: Brother ULT 2001 Cost $2.8k
One of these: Butterfly B1501B/T Cost $10k with accessories

Machines I used to have:
Brother PE770 Cost $700 (had 4, sold 3 when got 15 needle machine)
Brother SE400 Cost $350 (dropped down flight of stairs. RIP)
Singer CE-250 Cost $625 (crap machine)
Singer XL-550 Cost $1k (crap machine)
Singer XL-400 Cost $800 (crap machine. I'm seeing a pattern)
Janome 9700 cost $2k (good machine but expensive)
Husqvarna Topaz 50 Cost $3.1k (good machine but expensive)

I recommend either the 6800PRW or the SE400 for folks starting out. They are exactly the same besides the model number, stickers and the carry cart that only comes with the 6800PRW. They can do embroidery and regular sewing, and do both very well. I have had more than a dozen different machines by different manufacturers, and I like these the best. DO NOT BUY the Singer machines. They are horrible embroidery machines, and Singer customer service is even worse. Singer used to be totally awesome, I am very disappointed in their new products and service.
I finally finished a long running comparison of different #11 blades for an x-Acto knife handle.  This is how I cut out some of the patches I make.  After more than a thousand blades used in the last few years and 400 more blades for testing, I now know which are the best ones. the answer surprised me.

There were 4 blades tested, in order of cost (in packs of 100)
Techni Edge #11 - Cost 11.7 Cents Each
X-Acto #11 Blades - Cost 19 cents Each
X-Acto X-Life #11 - Cost 22 cents Each
X-Acto Z-Series #11 - Cost 36.8 Cents Each

You can check out the results and testing methodology on my embroidery blog

Hey E, we love your patches. We've put your patches through some major abuse throughout the years, and they're still in one piece. Keep up the good work.
