Welcome to Barbara's Embroidery
Please read FAQ's and my blog for pricing, turnaround, and availability.

Thanks for visiting my website!  My small business is a custom embroidery shop located in the Potrero Hill district in San Francisco.  My commercial equipment is the same that is used by manufacturers, but I am not running a big factory - all my work is done by me (one person). 

Please review my FAQ page for ordering information.

Barbara Zerbe

Barbara Zerbe has been creating, sewing, and embroidering for over 40 years; with over 17 years on Tajima machines. A dedicated artist and small business owner, she brings expertise, passion and humor to all her custom work.

What I do:

I create embroidery  on many types of textiles and garments. I specialize in custom embroidered logos, and pricing is based on a 12-piece minimum for new orders that require programming (logos, pictures, custom fonts).

I use state-of-the-art computer programmed Tajima embroidery machines to professionally stitch your design or lettering. 

I have sources for some garments for your job, or you can provide your own pieces for embroidery.

Please review our FAQ page for ordering information, and AFTER YOU HAVE REVIEWED THE FAQ's, use our Contact Barbara page to send me your designs.
