I love reading about how business got their start and Elegant Stitches is one of my favorites. Born “out of necessity” because they couldn’t find what they were looking for. You don’t need any other excuse!
“Elegant Stitches was “born” in 1986 out of necessity – we couldn’t find top quality smocking and heirloom sewing supplies to sew for our own children. In the past 27 years, we have come from having 8 bolts of fabric and a handful of patterns and plates to being one of the largest shops of our kind in North Carolina. (The children we were sewing for are now either in college, grad school or have graduated and are out on their own and there is now an ‘elegant granddaughter’. How quickly time flies!) In addition to our wide array of patterns, fabrics and sewing supplies, we are also factory authorized and trained Bernina and Elna sewing machine dealers.”
What am I shopping for at Elegant Stitches right now? I’m loving their large supply of Featherwale corduroy. Perfect for my Fall and Winter sewing and it pleats up beautifully for smocking!
