...one-off embroidered patches

This is for work.
Another one of those They Make Them Here But You Can’t Buy Them Here deals, it looks like.
I need just a few simple rectangular embroidered patches, like with names and other single words on them, but like only one or two with each.
All I’ve been able to locate are job-lot places with a 20 piece minimum per name etc, or they’re like $US40 each or such nonsense.
I know at home you can go to the mall and there’s places there that will do it while you wait.
Has anyone seen a place here like that?

Check with Iris hstu. I’ve heard she’s pretty handy with an embroidery needle.
