On January 15, 2013 Creative Stitches and gifts relocated a mile down the road occupying 3,552 square feet of retail space. At this time they realized the need for cross stitch in the Dallas area and hired Diane Willwerth to head up this department.
Creative Stitches & gifts had 22 feet of wall space wallpapered with rice paper to display their canvases. The rice paper prevents staple marks from showing when replacing sold canvases. The customers love being able to see all the canvases at a glance.
The pride and joy of the store—the custom Kreinik cabinets. They not only hold all the Kreinik but also Bijoux and Accentuate.
85 different threads representing 19 different manufacturers are displayed on 17 feet of wall space expanding up 7 feet high or can be found on numerous spinners. The remaining three feet of wall space is utilized by showing off the various project bags carried by the store.
Creative Stitches and gifts is fortunate to have a glass enclosed 500 sq. ft class room that can hold up to 20 students. The room is equipped with two large gridded dry erase boards that make showing stitch patterns easy for teachers to demonstrate. Three large tables and swivel cushioned chairs bring great comfort for students.
