Welcome to Grande Stitches
When I think about the shop, I think about a celebration of textiles!! Growing up as the oldest of eight children, textile crafts were always a constant in my childhood. The love for these timeless hobbies has been present in my life for as long as I can remember. The same can be said for my love of Boca Grande. As a native Floridian, my family started vacationing here in the summer of 1987 and have continued that tradition ever since. My Mom often tells the story of me as a little girl, standing on the beach and proclaiming to her that one day I was going to live here! Even my little self knew then, what I know even more now. There is something magical about this island and being here truly is a dream come true!
While Grande Stitches may be little, our small walls encompass a variety of supplies in the vast world of stitching such as knitting, sewing, quilting and needlepoint. We focus on curating unique items that are often made in small batches, including many that are exclusive to our island store. From our very own uniquely dyed thread lines to our exclusive needlepoint designs, we hope that you will find your shopping experience with us to be one of a kind! We believe that just like this darling island we live on, we too, sit slightly away from it all – intentionally small in an attempt to preserve being true to who we are. For these reasons, we do not offer a typical online store and instead focus on creating a unique shopping experience while you are here with us in paradise. With that said, stayed tuned to our social media accounts where from time to time, we do offer limited edition curations to those who are not able to visit our island store!
