Excellent service and embroidered slouch jumpers with my logo. Thank you very much…. watch his space for more orders. Kernow Pilates 

Our group used The St Mawgan Embroidery Company to produce our very own hoodie and sweatshirt range.  Gill was so easy to work with, providing expert advice on logo design, garment style, sizing and cost, as well as giving us the opportunity to look at and feel samples of her work.  The whole process was fast and efficient.  The quality of the finished Hoodies was excellent and the embroidered logos looked fantastic.  They have kept their size, shape and colour through numerous washes.  .  The sensible and clear pricing information Gill  gave us allowed us to sell them to our members at a small profit helping to raise much needed funds for the club. They represent  excellent value for money and our members are thrilled with their hoodies and wear them with pride promoting the club.  I have no hesitation in recommending Gill and her company to anyone looking to find a branded identity and will certainly use her services again in the future. The Cabaret Club, Mawgan PorthChairman Barry Coppins 

Thank you for our recent consignment of Polo shirts and Hoodies that arrived on time. The embroidery was excellent and really brought to life our emblem. Comment to this effect was made by a number of members and other outside sources. We wish you well and will be back for repeat orders. St Mawgan Eccentric Gentleman’s AssociationDavid Vickery

Our four head embroidery machine

St Mawgan Embroidery Company are very pleased to share our exciting news that we are now the proud owners of a new ZSK Racer 4S industrial embroidery machine. This four head embroidery machine is made in Germany and was supplied by Stocks; ZSK’s sole agent in the UK (www.stocks.co.uk). Stocks provided excellent service in delivering and installing the machine and providing two days of very valuable training in its operation. They also gave us the welcome assurance of the provision of readily available ongoing support. The ZSK produces beautiful and accurate embroidery time after time and we are looking forward to delighting our customers with the quality of its output.


To help us purchase the machine we received a Grant from the BIG2 Project funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The Grant partly funded the new ZSK embroidery machine which we commissioned in July 2018. It also partly funded new workshop doors on our recently refurbished embroidery workshop which were provided and expertly installed by Windmill Windows (www.windmill-windows.com). They look just great.

Our new machine increases our output capacity, which means that we are now able to grow our business, create a new full-time job and break into new national markets. The increase in capacity will also enable us to bring new products and services to market. So watch this space for our exciting developments.
