When Nancy Romig, owner of Sew Stitchtastic of Holt, first moved to the community many years ago, she never thought it would be permanent, let alone that this would be where she decided to open her small business.
“Holt is such a wonderful community,” Nancy says. “We absolutely fell in love with it and our community. This is where my husband and I are working on our small businesses. It is a great place to invest.”
Nancy owns and operates Sew Stitchtastic, a quilting and embroidery business. She had been sewing for over 25 years but decided to start offering custom quilt and embroidery services to the public during the last few years. For her quilting services, Nancy can create quilt tops for customers, as well as custom quilts. Nancy receives many requests for t-shirt quilts, a great high school or college graduation gift. She also makes memory quilts using shirts from a family member who has passed away.
For custom embroidery services, Nancy offers embroidery on many different items, including t-shirts or key chains. She has recently started working more with other small businesses to create personalized gifts for staff members. “I like to look at what I do being a very personalized service for my customers,” Nancy says proudly. “I like getting to know people and creating something that actually means something to a person.”
Nancy hopes to offer classes in the future to teach others how to sew or quilt. As a previous full-time educator, Nancy is passionate about teaching others. As Sew Stitchtastic continues to rapidly grow, Nancy looks forward to expanding into a bigger location outside of her home and providing more offerings. Customers can currently make appointments to meet with Nancy and discuss what they’re looking for.
As the holiday season nears, it’s a great time to start putting in orders for gifts. According to Nancy, earlier is always better for quilt or bigger items. Smaller items such as personalized embroidered ornaments have a quicker five-to-seven-day turnaround.
