SWF Embroidery Machine

..........I have a couple of minutes this morning before I head over to my friends house. She came home yesterday. I had to take a trip to Ft. Worth Texas yesterday so I need to go and sit with her and see how things are.

............. I have a SWF industrial embroidery machine ...... Not sure if many of you ladies know that I have a little embroidery business in my garage (my DH converted into a beautiful shop) I do custom embroidery and digitizing and screen print.

.....Every two years I need to take my machine to Texas for maintenance. Yesterday was that day. The trip is about 3 1/2 hours and it takes them about 2 1/2 hours to go through the machine. So it makes for a long day but necessary........... Just thought you might like to see the machine. This is not a picture of my machine but one from the web site.......... It is wonderful........... Because of this past summer and bringing my Mom and Dad out here my business has had to slow down a bit but I am fixing to run and ad in the local paper and let my customers that I am here and ready to go to work.................. anyway...........We had such a busy summer with Mom and Dad that I had to put my shop on hold. Anyway... when I get the curtains hung and a few more things finished in my shop I will take pictures and let you see first hand where I work. But in the mean time here is a picture of my machine. It is a 15 needle one head and it will run 1200 stitches a minute but I only run it 650 or so........... It is like having a mustang (which I once had) that will run 120.......... but I only had mine up to 80............. hahahahhahhaha

have a great day ladies and I will post about my friend as I can................ love

Good Afternoon Denise,
Wow, that is a big machine I must say. I'm glad you had a safe trip to Fort Worth and back yesterday. I bet you do beautiful work on your embroidery machine. You will have to show us some of your work when you have time. I'm glad your friend got to come home. I will still be praying that she will get better. I am still going to be online. "PRAISE GOD" I was able to pay the Cable & Internet Bill late yesterday afternoon. Take care my friend and enjoy the afternoon with your friend. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Yes, once you get it up and going we will have to see some pictures of your work. Maybe we can keep you busy.;)

I am glad your friend came home and that she was able to get some rest. You touch her and pray for her. And when you go into her presence you KNOW that you are taking the power of united prayer with you. You speak boldly in the name of the Lord. We will back you up!
Thank you for your heart! You do not know how I long to meet women who are seeking His face. We must all go through drought to truly appreciate His liquid presence.
How I long for women who are willing to stay around and pound the pavement with me.
Time is short.
Could it be that He has brought us here at this time not to form a social club but to spur one another on to love and good works? To allow the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to things that need to be revealed.
Praying for you as you minister to your friend and parents.

Love your embroidery machine, I am sure you do great things on it.
I need a new sewing machine as mine has broken down.
I am about 3 hours from Fort Worth I live in Texarkana, Tx. I am glad you made the trip safely.

I would love to see where you work and some of your work. One of the kids at our school- his mom does this and I've heard her machine is huge.
I will be praying for your friend and thanking Him that you are being a good faithful friend.

You will have to put some pictures on of your work. Good luck with the business and have a great evening.

Love and Hugs,

I have seen these machines but don't think I could run one. When I embroider, it is by hand. I love your work.

Dad is so proud of you and good reason too. I'm glad your business will be up and running again soon.

Love and blessings,
