Announcement from It Takes a Stitch,  September, 2022

It Takes a Stich is not taking any new orders.

Longstanding orders, special projects, and other commitments fill my schedule.  You may see posts on my Facebook page.


Announcement from It Takes a Stitch,  January, 2020

To my cherished friends, customers, and colleagues,

This announcement for 2020 comes with very mixed feelings. Some changes are coming to It Takes a Stitch—it’s the end of one era and the beginning of a new one.

The business as you know it is being scaled back. This isn’t retirement, it’s more like a sabbatical. There are many reasons for the change, but now is the time. While I have loved all the wonderful people and interesting work this job has brought me, it doesn’t leave much time or energy for anything else (and all that extra attention to my health throughout 2019 didn’t help).

So, what am I going to do? Exciting personal and creative professional projects are on the horizon. I’m looking forward to catching up on some things that have been sent to the back burner for too long. It Takes a Stitch’s focus is changing to a more artistic direction—more details to come later. Updates will be posted on my website and Facebook page.

Thank you to everyone I've worked with over the years, it has been a joy. If you need to transition to a new embroidery provider, I will try to help where I can.

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.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you are inspired by what you see!
