Update from It Takes a Stitch

September 2019

After years of telling people that my mother could become ill and die anytime, it finally happened. My 108 year old mother finally left us to join her husband 40 years after he died. The illness was short and painless, the final breath so very peaceful, in her own home. The services were a great big party in her honor, celebrating her remarkable life. We could not have asked for anything better. Thank you to everyone who offered their support and condolences.


I still have a few medical issues of my own to attend to in the next 2 months, along with a short vacation at the end of September. So, It Takes a Stitch will have an irregular schedule through October.


CLOSED Sept 15 - Oct 1, 2019 
OPEN with reduced hours Oct 2 - Oct 11, 2019


CLOSED Oct 12 - Oct 25, 2019

Please call or email to check availability. Thank you, all, for your patience during the past months.


Welcome to It Takes a Stitch, the professional custom embroidery business of Regina Cassidy in Arlington, Virginia, close to Georgetown and Washington, DC.

 It Takes a Stitch wants to make you look good with embroidery! Monograms, logos, custom lettering, large and small designs can all add a personal flair to apparel, linens, and accessories. Embroidery is perfect for gifts, heirlooms, promoting a business, uniforms, or just plain fun. Embroidery can even change that unwanted hole or stain into a unique opportunity to enhance a garment, linen, or accessory.

Special requests are as welcome as those for classic and traditional embroidery. It Takes a Stitch offers a wide range of colors, lettering, designs and products to meet your needs. I listen to your ideas, use quality products, and take great care to create something that you love.

Take a look around. You can see examples of finished work, font and monogram styles, products for sale, links to more products, and how to contact It Takes a Stitch.
