I am currently not open for custom work.
Sparky's Stitches is my small home-based business, mostly centered around machine embroidery, although I do dabble in other crafts. If you are interested in having an embroidery design created and stitched for you/your friends/your fans on a small scale, this is the place. No minimum order required. If you want a design created that is something I can sell to other people, there may be no charge (I'll only charge if its a giant pain in the butt to do). If it is a design you do not want sold to others, my fees are quite low, usually no more than $20 per design. Patches run from $5 to $10 unless they are very large (iron-on backing no extra charge), t-shirts and tote bags, $15 to $25 depending on how long the design takes to stitch out. I can also do aprons, hoodies, name it.
I operate on a sixteen needle machine, with a maximum design size of 14" by 14". I currently digitise with the Embird software. I can either custom digitise your own artwork, logos, and favorite characters, or you can request a commercially-available design. See the Links page for sites I recommend for searching designs. If you're not sure what you want just email me and let me know and I'll see what I can find. I can edit designs to an extent, such as removing text and backgrounds (if possible). I can also add custom text in most fonts.
I've been primarily selling through my Etsy shop but you can just contact me directly as well.
