Where were you on New Year’s Eve 2021?
The Embroiderrific Team was at the Bubbles and Bow Ties NYE 2021 Party held at the Ascend Prime Steak and Sushi in Bellevue, Washington. While the party guests enjoyed sipping Don Julio 1942 tequilas, we were monogramming face masks and bow ties.
Preparations started a month before the event. We had to make sure our equipment were freshly serviced and in tip top condition, the client approved the embroidery design, supplies were on hand, and the staff were trained.
The day of the event was also full of excitement. It had been snowing a few days prior so there was still lots of snow and slippery ice on the ground . We left early to make sure we have enough time to set-up. On the way to the venue, just as we passed the Totem Lake area, we saw “I-405 S Closed” on the traffic reader board. No explanation as to why. Holy moly! How is that even possible?!? Google Maps didn’t show any indication of the delay. Anyway, ten minutes later, the interstate surprisingly cleared and we were able to get to the Lincoln Square loading dock 15 minutes earlier than our scheduled time. We hauled three embroidery machines and supplies up the freight elevator to the 31st floor. We prepped the supplies and calibrated the equipment. Half an hour later, we were all set up and ready to go!
By 8 pm, guests started arriving to the “Don Julio 1942 Experience” room. We started taking monogram orders. We heard a lot of “What? You can monogram masks at a party while we sip our tequilas?” Many have not seen an embroidery machine before and were mesmerized by the rhythm of the needles racing at 1,000 stitches per minute. By midnight, while the guests watched the beautiful fireworks display on west side of the restaurant, we were heads down on our machines making sure the work was done perfectly, efficiently, and all the orders completed before the guests leave.
We worked non-stop for five hours and embroidered over 200 masks and bow ties!
Based on the feedback that we received from the Ascend team and their guests, we did an outstanding job. We were extremely professional and they hope to see us again in the future.
Special shout out to the Ascend Hospitality Group Marketing Team who hired and placed their confidence on us! Looking forward to doing more collaboration with you.
