GreatStitch is taking a short break

I have used GreatStitch every year for the past eight years for my son’s birthday. Two years ago, my youngest was born and another customer at that! My little man LOVED this shirt. He was so excited to have a school bus on it! THANK YOU, for always going above and beyond for my boys.

The shirt is very cute and looks as it does in the photo. However, I specifically inquired in advance on the number sizing for the shirts and was told a Small was a 6-8 and a medium was a 10-12. I ordered a medium as my daughter is a 7/8. I was disappointed when the shirt arrived as Cat&Jack 6/6X. Had I know that was the brand, I would have ordered the medium which is a 7/8 in that brand (not 10/12). The shirt worked for the party, but will not be big enough for her to continue wearing thoughout the year which she typically likes to do. The seller did respond quickly when I inquired and offered to make it right , but the party was only a few days away.

Sooooo cute! My son was so excited and wants to wear it now. HA HA. Ordered early, just in case, but was such a quick turnaround. Great quality and even emailed me back to double check on size. Really cares about customers. THANK YOU!

As always, GreatStitch came through in creating the PERFECT shirt for my kids! We have used Brenda for the last seven years for our older son, and absolutely couldn’t let our littlest baby boy not have a custom piece for his first birthday!

The Most Important Criticism I Ever Received
Twenty years ago I got a part time job in a sewing and craft store coordinating their educational classes. I worked with the teachers to get samples made and displayed in the store to promote sign-ups for the classes. One day as I working a lady came up and without any introduction told me quite bluntly, "You need better samples!"
At that point I could have been appalled at her directness toward someone else's work, and been rude in responding. But for some reason that day I chose another path. I thanked her and asked if she had any ideas where I could get them...and wouldn't you know, that moment changed my life! It turned out that she owned the largest distributor of heirloom sewing supplies in the country. She was in town visiting her daughter during chemo treatments for her cancer.
That was the beginning of a wonderful relationship. She not only gave me better samples for the classes I was trying to organize, but she taught unbelievable classes and shared skills and tips from a lifetime of learning. None of us who knew her during that time have ever been the same. She taught me how to see tiny details and the difference they make. That lesson stays with me today, you can see her in all of the things I create. But the most important lesson I learned from her wasn't about sewing at all. She taught me to enjoy life while you have it, because there are no re-dos.
I started sewing for my dolls on a treadle sewing machine when I was 11 years old. Over the years I have done everything from wedding gowns to leather horse show shirts.
I found the most fun people to sew for are kids. Their eyes light up and they smile from ear to ear! One little boy's mother told me he went running through the house yelling, "My choo-choo train, my choo-choo train" when he received his shirt. To me there is nothing more gratifying than making a child happy!
After my daughter struggled with and beat cancer 10 years ago, birthdays seem a little more important. So far I have been privileged to be part of more than ten thousand birthdays, and it just keeps getting better!

Orders are done first come first serve. So the sooner you get the order in, the sooner you get your shirt. We do not start an oder until it is paid for. Nor exceptions. The overnight listing is an orange box to look for in my shop if you want it. It is $15 on top of the regular priority. I don't make anything on that. I do ship in order of purchase, unless I happen not to have your particular shirt in stock. If you are under a week, please purchase the rush order, but ask first.
