Welcome to “Blessed by Stitches.” As my company names implies, I truly feel blessed to be doing what I love.
My name is Lynne Gerisch and I began sewing and hand embroidery as a young girl, taught by my precious mother. I sewed all my clothes, and made everything for my children’s nursery and remember the pride I felt, knowing the knowledge and love my Mom had for these things had been passed on to me.
A few years later, the home embroidery machine became very popular and I purchased a Bernina 180 with embroidery attachment. It was wonderful! Soon I was monogramming everything and giving personalized gifts to all my friends. They in turn kept asking, “Why don’t you do this for a business?”
In the fall of 2009, I lost my job due to the economy and I began asking God for a plan. My husband knew my desire was to open an embroidery business. We purchased a commercial Baby lock machine and began praying about a company name. All the names I like, when researched on available URL’s, were taken; then my husband suggested Blessed by Stitches and as the saying goes, the rest is history. God has truly blessed me in this venture!
I want you to know that your purchases are the reason I am able to stay in business. I do very little advertising, my customers are my advertisers! A personalized gift is special. The monogram or design can reflect many things, the recipient’s “fun side” or hobby. It really shows how much you care!
Thank you for visiting my store and if you are looking for something special, please let me know – Most of my baby work is customized per your request and I visit the Atlanta Merchandise Mart several times a year looking for new items.
