Reader Recommendation Request: Embroidery, anyone?

September 30, 2007 at 3:33 pm | In Reader recommendations | 8 Comments

Here’s another WSB RRR, posted in the neighbor-helping-neighbor spirit, in hopes someone else in West Seattle can help when your F2F friends/family/neighbors can’t. This one’s from Jen:

I’m wondering if any WSB readers know of and can recommend someone who can do a small piece of embroidery. I don’t have a large volume job – just embroidering a name on one item. Since I lack a sewing machine, I can’t do it myself, and I have no idea where to find someone who would be willing to fulfill such a small request.

Please post suggestions as comments to this post. Part of the beauty of RRRs is that they provide information searchable later for anyone trying to find something similar. Don’t forget, we are gathering them all in their own category (here).


  1. Try contacting PB&J Textiles. I saw their work at a WS Chamber of Commerce open house at SSCC this past summer, but have not yet done business with them. Contact info 206-243-3053,,, located at 7349 35th Ave SW.

  2. Try the Senior Center of West Seattle – 932-4044 – 4217 SW Oregon St. They have a quilting group. There is sure be be someone of talent with silk and needle there.

  3. I recommend calling the friendly, helpful, and talented staff at the Seattle Yarn Gallery. They sell embroidery tools and supplies at the store, and I’m sure that at least one person on staff is an embroidery expert. At the very least, I’m sure they’d be able to put you in touch with someone who can help. ( 206.935.2010)

  4. Try at the trophy shop in the Junction. It’s in the back of the building, with the pass through from the parking lot, in the north west part of the Junction. I think it’s Many Moons trading that’s in there too. She does letterman’s jackets.

  5. I’ve used PB&J Textiles (across the street from Bee Waxed Spa & the ever-revolving cafe). They do great work, and are very fast, friendly & nice.

  8. Hi,
    Late though I am on posting – we use Wilson Stitchery in Shoreline. The owners have no problem with small jobs and we use them all the time. Good luck!
