About Leslie

 

I have dreamed of owning a boutique since 2008 when I received my first Embroidery machine. I would catch myself saying "it would be so fun to own a store!".  What started out as a side hobby sewing for my friends out of the spare room of our basement, then developed into a boutique craft fair booth and is now a retail store in a historic building on Main Street.  Dreams do come true! I have God to thank for that, along with my husband, 4 kids, parents, friends, family and YOU, the customer. Because without YOU, my great customers this little side hobby wouldn't be what it is today.  I am so grateful!

 

I was first introduced to stitching with thread by my grandmother, Nana. I remember spending weekend nights at her house; she sat on the edge of her corner couch cushion, needlepoint loom under her fingers. I was fascinated by how one tiny strand of thread woven over itself hundreds and hundreds of times turned into beautiful patterns, landscapes, shapes and text. As a young 10 year old girl, my Nana did something that forever changed my life - taught me how to cross stitch. Practice, passion, and time has turned this skill into an embroidery business. I am still amazed that all it takes is one strand of thread. The love of my Nana flows through me into every item that I embroider. My hope is that this love transfers to your family as you dress your little one in Castleberry Kids Clothes, as it does in mine each time I dress one of my 4 kids.
