Loved my Manzanita wishing tree! I was able to personalize it and make it into an escort card holder. It came out better than I could have ever hoped for or imagined.

Creation of Elaborate Stitches

I am mother of two beautiful young girls who are starting to stretch their wings, which is leaving me with some free time. One day came cross a beautiful wedding dress with gorgeous lace gracing the train and I thought crossed my mind that lace would look stunning on a wedding veil. At that point it was just thought and I left the store, but I just could not get it out of my mind. I had not made a wedding veil since my own wedding 7 years ago, but I could not get the beautiful lace out of my mind. I went back and to my surprise the wedding dress was still there a few weeks later and it was a sign. After carefully removing the lace from the wedding dress, purchased tulle, created a custom wedding veil pattern and added the lace my first wedding veil creation was completed. Than the veil just sat there unsure where to sell my creation. My sister told me about Etsy, she heard about it on Oprah Winfrey show. After doing some research I knew Etsy was the site to open Elaborate Stitches. Since opening in December of 2010 I have expanded my line to included Wishing Trees, Hair Accessories, Bridal Sashes and Shrugs. Enjoy shopping at Elaborate Stitches!
