Jumping into any new business venture can be scary. We’ve worked with dozens of startups and at-home embroiderers over the last three decades, so we completely understand the questions that can pop up as you’re exploring this opportunity. We’ve got answers, plus all the training and support you need to get started and succeed.

Q: Is embroidery a viable business option?

Absolutely. It’s a growing, multi-billion dollar industry with a wide range of applications and audiences. Business sectors from hospitality to healthcare to professional services all need embroidery, plus sports teams, schools, community organizations and so many more.

Q: What are the benefits of an embroidery business?

First: Low start-up costs and low operating costs. You can launch your business for less than $15,000. The products are easy to sell, both online and off, and offer excellent profit margins. There’s also scalability. You can easily expand when you’re ready. Plus, you can work from home. Single-head machines are compact enough to fit just about anywhere.

Q: How much money can I make?

This industry continues to grow in demand in markets large and small, which means the income potential continues to grow as well. We break it down for you with real-life financial scenarios here:

Q: Are embroidery machines hard to operate?

At Stitch It International, we distribute embroidery machines that are easy to operate, quick to learn and reliable – even if you know nothing about embroidery.

Each month, we offer classes that cover everything from threading your machine to general maintenance and pro-tips for producing the highest quality products.

Q: Which machine do you recommend for at-home businesses?

Single-head machines are great for start-ups and at-home businesses. They’re portable, compact and easy to use. SWF’s MAS12-Series is a great example of that. As the first “smart” single-head embroidery machine, it comes packed with quality features – like a 10.4-inch high-resolution touchscreen control panel, USB port support and a head and thread tension adjustment plate to make controlling your end-product even easier. Plus, it features SWF’s revolutionary Smart Embroidery System (SES), which instantly converts photos directly into embroidery-ready design data without further editing.
