Dear Friends,

I honestly didn’t know if today would ever come! Finally! All the preparation, legal maneuvering, web building and one thousand other items have come together!

Welcome to Stitching on State, Where Quilting and Sewing Meet!

So, why did we choose Stitching on State for our new name?  Well, the simple, but powerful Stitch is what binds our projects-and our friendships-together. No matter what type of sewing you enjoy, it all starts with a Stitch.  And State brings us back to our beautiful Old House in the country. We have a sense of Place in this home and it’s important to us that you also feel the welcome of the lovely porch and the friendly, caring staff inside.

Yes, after trying out 100’s of names we realized that Stitching on State was a perfect match for who we all are. We hope you do also!

I wouldn’t dream of ending without acknowledging and thanking everyone who have worked so hard with us. It was truly a group effort and, fortunately, a lot of fun also.

Thank you to our staff for suggesting and auditioning tons of names for the past several months. They have even been practicing answering the phone with the new name! Thank you to our sons, Eric, David and Greg, for countless hours of idea generation,  web work, logo design and social media help.  And a huge thank you to Jen Howver of VOD Communications. Jen is awesome, organized, focused, smart and creative. Jen kept us moving forward in one direction even though it was like herding cats sometimes. We couldn’t have done it without her.

So, welcome to Stitching on State! The name is special, the shop and our staff are special and our friends and customers, are priceless.

Join us on Feb 2nd for our Grand Re-Opening Celebration!

Elaine and Mike Thomas
