I'll take it to that shop on Main Street, I thought, the Stitching Post. I had heard they did custom machine embroidery. The piece was already quilted except for the border, leaving only about a 5- inch square free for the embroidery work. Difficult. I took it in. Dina Bush, owner and operator of the Stitching Post, met the challenge without batting an eye. "Sure," she said. Wow/I thought. Seated at what looked like a PC, she keyed in the name and date I wanted on the quilt corner, then she asked for my input on the style (font) the em- broidery would be done in, as well as the placement and size of the letter- ing. She hit buttons and on the moni- tor I could preview the various choices. That's what she means by "custom," folks. Then we discussed color. Dina sug- gested the embroidery be done in a green to pick up the greens in the quilt top. I had come in thinking pink, as that's what the border color was, but I could see immediately that she was right. I left the quilt and my choices with Dina, and I was delighted with the results when I picked it up a few days later. Next, I thought maybe she could help me with another little problem I had. You see, I have a favoritepink sweatshirt that, unfortunately, I had gotten ink spots on. I took it in. "An- other dilemma, Dina," I said, and ex- plained. I had with me a favorite scarf that I intended to wear with the sweatshirt, and Dina matched the colors in the scarf to the two butterfly designs I selected. It worked beautifully! The butterflies covered the ink spots, matched the colors in the scarf, and I had a new ensemble to wear to Myrtle Beach;, An added advantage to having Dina customize the weatshin is Denim jacket with American eagle design to be won in November 19 drawing. Dina f'n'st opened for business in her home on Alice Road on July 19, 1999. She moved into her current location at 106 E. Main Street, Glenville, on November 19, 2002. "People followed the machine tfi the door," she recounts, "so I opened a week before I was officially ready." It's a tribute to Dina's sense of humor and calm demeanor, that she didn't shoo them away. Being on Main Street makes the shop much more acces- sible and that, she says, has helped her business tremendously. "There is an advantage to owning a business in a small town," she said. "I know my customers. I usually know what they want when they walk through the door. Or, if it's a design for a family member, I usually know who that person is -- I know what they like-- and I can make suggestions." People often call her and discuss a particular design they'd like, She laughed as she said, "I tell them to put the design a little closer to the phone!" The Stitching Post Embroidery shop. will be holding Open House, starting November 1. Stop in and sign for a chance to win a denim jacket, with the awesome American eagle machine- embroidered on the back. Drawing will he held on November 19. that I know for certain that I will not catch anyone else wearing the same thing. Beat the businesses who don't believe in advertising!
