Awesome Fully Promoted Racecar

Midge is our 1974 Fully Promoted Race Car #fullypromotedracecar If you see her out cruising, Tag us using that hashtag. We'd love to know where you spotted her!



Darth is our newest addition and she is a beast! 6 heads of fast moving, never tiring, embroidery capabilities. She never needs a break but when she gets one, you can hear her breathing... hence her name... Darth.

Charlie and Char

Top Models

Charlie was a little lonely after hours. He'd been a bachelor for many years as the Embroidme model, so we decided to allow him to invite his long time love Char to join us. The two can be seen enjoying picnics, sporting safety gear, getting ready for a golf outing, or sometimes.... caught sharing a private moment in the rain. You'll have to follow us on social to see what they are up to next.
