Appliqué is often described as decoration or trimming that is cut from one piece of fabric and stitched to another. Its purpose is to add dimension and texture, and for centuries embroiderers have used it to complement embroidery. It certainly gives a higher perceived value to an embroidered design since it reduces the overall stitch count and allows for the creation of cost-effective, full-size graphics with interesting textures and effects that would be impossible to create with direct embroidery alone. Appliqués provide the perfect alternative to larger, more costly embroidery projects.

We can offer you appliqué designs that are multi-layered, floating, window-cut, frayed edge or even distressed. When your creative juices are flowing, any fabric can be used as your appliqué - even mesh, printed or sheer fabrics like organza and chiffon. The possibilities are endless!
