    John Horne founded Stitch Designers in 1985 with his wife Peggy Horne with nothing but a 6 head embroidery machine and a dream to make it one of the largest embroidery shops in the nation. Over the years his vision of the company has evolved and adapted but it is finally coming to fruition. With over 400+ embroidery heads and an ever increasing screen printing department, Stitch Designers is constantly changing and growing.
