The embroidery machine we are using to embroid our Linux t-shirts is 7 years old. 7 years ago, in January 2011, just after my son was born, I decided to buy an embroidery machine and make our Linux t-shirts ourselves.
At this time, we only had Linux, Debian and Linux Mint t-shirts and polos, but it was obvious that if we want to make more Linux distribution and free software swag, we have to do the embroidery ourselves. This Bernina embroidery machine from Switzerland was working hard in the last 7 years, without any serious issues or any problems making us stop the shop. Thanks to her, it was a really good job! Now, she goes to a full renewal, because her younger Brother has just arrived from the US.
From now on, we can make more, and better Linux shirts for you. With two machines, it will be no stress if suddenly we get hundreds of orders, or if one of them happens to be out of service.
