If you have ever been to a big industry trade show you may have noticed that the most popular look worn by exhibitors on the trade show floor is either a polo shirt, oxford or sweater with a corporate logo stitched on the upper chest. Now that I have some digitizing and embroidery chops, and I was heading off to represent our family business at a trade show (Supply Side West in Las Vegas), I decided to make a “corporate” sweater. And the lucky recipient was my dear brother.
You may recall my test stitching the other day that I cranked out the night before I was supposed to leave town. Well – the morning of the trip – I cranked out the sweater.
I had been a little nervous about stitching on a sweater, so I bought a $15 sweater at Marshalls just in case I screwed it up. All went well – the only issue was that the thread color I used was a little bit too close in color to the sweater so it didn’t stand out that well.
Nevertheless my brother still liked the sweater enough to wear it… and he fit in perfectly with all the other trade show exhibitors.
