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.
These are the conventions I plan on attending in 2014 so far.  I plan on bringing my embroidery machine to both to do live demonstrations and answer questions on embroidery and sewing.  Hope to see you there!

Hi there E :)

I'm currently starting out making my own basic patches, and was wondering what material/s you would recommend embroidering on for them? I did some practise ones on minky today (as I have a heap laying around) and sealed the edges with a soldering iron. I know minky isn't really what I should use in the future but I was looking for a recommendation ^_^.

Here you go: ethepony.blogspot.com/2013/11/…

What Stabilizer do you use?
I use a lot of different stabilizer depending on what the fabric and design is.  Stabilizer is the unsung hero of embroidery and can cause so many issues if used incorrectly.  I personally use 2 sheets of S-18 (1.8oz) and one sheet of HD (3.2oz) when making patches. For towels, fleece or Minky I also use a sheet of water soluble Solvy on the top to hold down the nap in addition to the S-18 and HD.

To be completely clear, I sew patches directly on stabilizer; no other fabric.

Oh thankyou! That is why I couldn't find what fabric you use, because there is none XD. 

Do you then cut or burn the excess stabiliser off from around the edges? I can't see any white around any of them :)

Cut it, then burn it with a blowtorch.  Link: ethepony.blogspot.com/2011/08/… It takes a steady hand and a while.  Depending on complexity, some of the stabilizer can still be seen, such as gilda here: fav.me/d49vizl
