A – The Embroidery Mart-NASHVILLE is a dynamic two-day event for the commercial embroidery and apparel decoration industry. It is designed to bring embroiderers, apparel decorators, and industry suppliers together to learn and share in a comfortable setting. Attending Embroidery Mart-NASHVILLE is like sitting down at a table laden with delectable “goodies” for embroiderers and apparel decorators – everywhere you turn, people are sharing ideas and helping each other! Companies showcasing equipment (embroidery, direct garment printing, screen printing, rhinestone, laser engraving, sublimation, heat press), digitizing software, blank goods, supplies and services are exhibiting at Embroidery Mart.
