Once you've removed the "offending" stitching, if you stabilize from behind, you can put a new design over top and somewhat hide the stitch marks that remain. I did this on a denim workshirt for my husband.

well this is a company logo done with a commercial machine I’m guessing. I don’t have an embroidery machine. The fabric is a polyester knit. We knew it was a long shot.

Were you able to get the stitches out or have you decided to do something else?

I agree that an applique patch would be the best bet. I have torn out to many embroidered designs. Lettering is hard to do as mentioned without tearing fabric. I would still take as much out before putting on an appliqued patch because you do not want anything to show through the new label .

The gadget that Gay mentioned is almost 1/2 the price on Amazon, of the one on the site mentioned (https://www.echidnasewing.com.au/peg...0volt-cordless). And it's the same little gadget.

It's basically a mustache trimmer, and they can be bought very affordably. I have one and wasn't as impressed as I hoped to be. Did not work on a satin stitch at all, but did nicely on a straight stitch. I had about 15 yards of ribbon I'd satin stitched to 12 shirts - and put on the wrong color so it all had to come off and be replaced.
