Live Events by The Patchsmith

Live Embroidery at The Patchsmith

As you might’ve read, we here at The Patchsmith are very particular when it comes to our patchmaking process. And it shows in the many custom patches we produce on a case-by-case basis. From the threading and needlework to the heat press to the cleanup by hand, each step is a delicate process.

Although the entire process all happens in our own studio, sometimes we like to invite people to come see the magic at work here at The Patchsmith. As of now, we are offering live embroidery events in the New York City area including Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx, Staten Island, Westchester and Long Island. The focus during these events is, of course, customer satisfaction and teaching the public about the work we do in an engaging way.

What goes on during our live embroidery events? Well it’s what you’d expect – embroidery done on-demand, right in front of you, so you can tailor it to your liking.

However, we don’t only do patches at our live events. Direct embroideries, where the image is embroidered as part of the fabric rather than as a patch, are also quite popular and are done at our live events with the help of our heat press. Similarly, we also offer screen-printed transfers where the image is printed on release paper and then applied to your item with a heat press. Patches, direct embroidery, and screen-printed transfers are all available at our live events and can be adjusted to your liking. When you see our process live, you’ll surely grow to appreciate the work that goes into the embroidery process.


Our live embroidery and printing events are also an excellent way to promote your brand. The entire process is quite simple. First, we learn about your company, the event proposed, its goals, and how our live embroidery service can boost your visibility. Once all that’s figured out, then comes the day of our live embroidery event. We set up our machines and get to work, stitching any design on any item so customers can see the process of embroidery or printing up close. Your customers leave with a custom design on your brand’s item. Easy.
