The Embroidery Studio is stitching its mark on Glen Rose

Josh Harville --
The Embroidery Studio is a cool little place with lots of personality. At first everything looks like a typical boutique, but then you start to notice a lot of personalization on things that had been embroidered. It is pretty fun to pick out all the neat stuff she did.

A new shop on the square is hosting its grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 8, and The Embroidery Studio -- which is owned by Stephanie Hall, will officially make its debut into the local realm of shops and boutiques.

What makes the Embroidery Studio unique is that Hall can -- and will -- embroider almost anything. She has been known to work with local businesses for custom embroidering projects and is expanding to the boutique world.

When first entering the shop, one is met with a classy display of boutique fashion, but on second glance, a whole new store becomes noticeable. One could almost make a game of finding all of the professional grade embroidered items that blend seamlessly with the jewelry, shoes, hats, and other fashion.

Behind the front desk is the embroidery machine with thread organized all around. Next to the machine is a large wall displaying a plethora of various pop culture characters made into hooded towels.

The store hosts multiple vendors with several styles and even has a touch of local town spirit with "Glen Rose" and "Tigers" embroidered on many things. The store even has Glen Rose cheer uniforms for little girls to wear to the games and such.

"She can make anything," said employee Bailey Brown. "She does custom orders too."

The shop is located at 202 NE Barnard St. and is hard to miss due to the displays in the front. The grand opening starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday and will last until 6 p.m. The day is celebrated with door prizes being drawn on the hour and sales for various merchandise.
