No Embroidery Machine?

No Problem.

Don’t have an embroidery machine, but you really would love that steampunk design stitched on a bag? Want one of our patches stitched out for your very own? Maybe you’re even a designer who would like to try our designs on your own creations.

These stitchers are here to help. Each of these sellers has been featured in our Urban Entrepreneurs series and they’re available for all kinds of custom work, from making you simple projects or patches, to whatever you dream up.  You don’t have to have a machine to try it out!

Click on each of the store names or images to find out more about each embroiderer from their feature, or click on their store links to get in touch about your next embroidery project.


Note: Urban Threads is here to provide a list intended to connect sellers and buyers, but any transactions taken are between those parties only. We’re just here to get you guys in touch!
