Change of Ownership in 2023

House of Stitches is now owned by Sarah Baumann, a passionate cross stitcher and long time supporter. Although it may have a fresh re-branded look, the legacy of House of Stitches’ excellent customer service and wide variety of cross stitch supplies remains the same.

As the new owner of House of Stitches, Sarah is a seasoned needlework enthusiast with a passion that dates back to her early teens. Originally from Illinois, she spent 19 years in Chicago with a career in IT. After a move to Indiana and a challenging period during the pandemic, she decided to pivot her career and take the reins at House of Stitches, her cherished local needlework shop. Outside of the stitching world, she shares a love for hiking and travel with her husband, indulges in beading, and enjoys the company of their delightful clowder of cats.
