Ace has a table at this con…. E we shoulda done this one. Its sooo much nicer

Next year we shall do the thing!

I am working on a big update to the MLP Eye Set that you can get from Ecrater or Etsy for $35.  I am updating a bunch of existing designs to make them better (more durable, more show accurate,  support additional fabric types) and adding more than a hundred sizes.  I am also adding a few more characters.   The update should be out within a week.  As usual, anyone who already has the set will get the update for free.  Either re-download it from Etsy or I send an email with the updated set if you got it though Ecrater.  Happy embroidering!-E

Storytime:  On my way to Trotcon.I passed a few really cool trucks carrying the 100 foot long blades for wind turbines as I crossed from Illinois to Indiana. They were just cruising along at about 60, so I stayed next to them for a bit admiring how awesome they were.  Then I sped back up to continue my journey.About 5 minutes later a half dozen police cars pulled on to the road with their lights on and surrounded me.  The ones behind me sped up until they they were about 50’ behind me and the ones in front slowed down to around 40, so I slowed down with them obviously. I looked at the one to the drivers side in the lane next to me, and he just smiled. I imagined him saying, “Hi Mr. E,  You were going 5 over the limit, so we called everyone!” I was freaking out. The ones I could see were talking on their radios and glancing at me every so often.  I couldn’t pull over because there was a cop car in all directions.  All I could think was that Indiana takes speeders super seriously.One of them waved me forward and another moved out of my way so I now had all the police cars with lights on behind me. I’m still going around 40 in a 65, they are slowly falling farther and farther behind me as they were going around 35. It took about a mile of driving, but the really cool trucks from before caught up to us.  That’s when the cops broke up their formation and surrounded those trucks. I finally figured out they were giving a police escort to them.  That was really cool.Thanks for scaring the crap out of me Indiana State police :/

For anyone in the neighborhood, I will have a table with Sweet Cream at Mighty Con Comic Convention at the Dupage fairgrounds on Saturday.  I won’t have my machine, but I will have lots of other stuff.  Come say hi!

I get to file an annual report for embroidery stuff and pay tax to my state, because they want the monies so they can not fill potholes with all the money I send them or whatever they do with it.  I can either:

A - Fill out actual paper and mail it to them, which costs $100.  They then have a person type it into a system so they have an electronic record.

B - Go online and type it in for them, except pay $155 for the privilege of entering it for them.

Hooray bureaucracy.  At least someone gets to look at a derpy stamp assuming they don’t have a auto-opening letter machine or something.

It’s no fun when your embroidery machine misbehaves.  I need to put it in time out until it learns to grow up.

Was asked to make some TF2 patches for some ponies that cosplay as TF2 characters.  Who am I to say no?  If you would like one you can get one here.

Anonymous said: Do you create Custom Cutie Marks patches?

Yes I do.  My comission details are here

Anonymous said: Yup. Those are identical. On a related note, I do a lot of vending in California and, seeing as you can't easily get here, could I buy a bunch of your patches and sell them for a marked up price here? (assuming i credited you of course)(this is all hypothetical)

That’s perfectly fine by me, there are a few people that have done that in the past; including the first BronyCon.  I’m not sure how many ‘a bunch’ is, but if it is enough for me to get a bulk discount on materials, I can probably also do a discount.  Send me an email or something if you’re serious at ethepony@gmail.com

casto-shadow said: How much for the NLR patches? And do they have velcro on the back?

Depends on which NLR patch you mean.   This one has velcro: http://ethepony.ecrater.com/p/17196737/light-luna-latin-patch-with-velcro

This one does not come with velcro: http://ethepony.ecrater.com/p/13720526/luna-republic-patch

Both patches are based on artwork by tensaioni by the way; made with permission.
