    Default embroidery places?

    My aunt is having a baby in August, and they know it's a boy. She has registered for all the "regulars", but I am looking to get her something a little more unique along with a registry gift. I picked up a really nice boyish blanket - it's satiny on one side, and a really soft (almost furry?) fabric on the other. I figure that would be nice as is, but I think it would be even more special if I could get it embroidered (or something) with his name, either in one corner or across the middle (they already have his name chosen and it's a sure thing...). Any ideas as to where I can get this done?
    Also, is this dorky? (guess I should have asked that first!)
    TIA!

    There is a place on Wharncliffe at Belmont (in the former Hooters plaza). I really don't know of any other places. When Leah was born, the staff at my school bought her an embroidered sleeper, name on the front, school name on the back. I thought it was cute.

    Whoever does it might want to undo some of the stitching to do the job (and then stitch it back up after), so perhaps account for some more $ if that's the case.

    I don't suggest these people, we have had some emobroidery done by them and they didn't do a great job. Just my opinion tho.
