Sadly I am reporting that Stephanie and I have made the very tough decision to sell our Embroidery business. For almost four years we gave it our best shot. I believe we made a good product and enjoyed it very much. It was not only about making product and selling. It was creating and believing in what we were making. That is what I will miss the most with the business.


Believe me when I say, this is a decision were making with our minds and not our hearts. Our heart is still with it but it only makes financial sense for us in this economy. We are both very sad over this and will miss it very much.

We will hold onto the name and at least finish out the year with the ability to make t shirts with our heat press, and possibly continuing small time into 2010 with the t shirt part of it. But as far as the embroidery equipment, that will be gone very soon.

I would like to overwhelmingly thank everyone out there who supported us through out the past years. We had many people that were repeat customers and we appreciate you all so much.
If it wasn't for you we would not have been able to survive this long. And a special thanks to Mike & Rob with AMS/LSCN for helping us and giving us the opportunity to make the business grow here on LSCN. You guys helped us out for the whole ride and for this I thank you so very much.

Thank you.

When good people make a good product, it is a surprise to hear the news.
You two have done a great job, in a business that can be tough, and yet rewarding at the same time.
The fun of the creativity, is what really drives us, through the challenges.
I'm sorry to hear the news, I know it was a tough decision to make.
You guys have done so much for so many through the years, I know you will have a great future, whatever it brings.

What a difficult decision
With our full time jobs, it was hard to put the 1000% into it like we wanted to. One of us could have taken it on full time, but as Bill said, with this economy, not really a smart choice.

Bill did excellent work, I'm totally giving him all the credit, since I only did the book work. He put his heart and soul into this. I'm so proud of him and I hope we can one day get back into it.

Thanks to everyone who supported us through the past few years, you will never know how much it was appreciated

Bill and Steph, I am sorry to hear this. You put a lot of time and effort into the business. You made a great product, we have quite a bit of your work. Hopefully down the road you will be able to do it again.

Very sorry to hear guys and I understand where you are coming from. I tried to start a lawn maintenance company a few years ago while working 1 FT job and 1 PT job. Needless to say, I was able to gain 1 customer, and he died later that year


Good Luck in your next venture (if any), and enjoy your free time!!

One way to look at it.

Awww, that's really too bad. I LOVE my pink turtle hoodie - I wear it all the time, and the hubby loves his LSC sweatshirt. I think it was great that you were able to totally customize my order. Fantastic customer service! We were actually just talking about wanting to order more from you. Please let us know if you do start back up! You will have customers waiting

I hope that it wasn't my fault for you not being about to find my size in Oh My God sizes??? Just kidding.
But, I am sorry that you decided to call it quits.....

Is that a halloween avatar or did you get too much sun this summer?
