About Us


Situated on Main Street in Bird Island, you'll find us in a small but spacious store. We are an authorized BERNINA dealer and carry notions, threads and other accessories to keep you sewing and embroidering.

​I am Amanda Elfering and together with my husband, Kelly, we purchased Creative Stitches in October 2017.

​We both grew up in the Bird Island/Hector area and are happy to be raising our 4 children here. We also do what most others in the area do, we farm. We grow corn, soybeans, sugar beets, sweet corn, and peas. If Kelly isn't at the store servicing machines, he's probably in a field somewhere :)

​3 of our 4 children sew so far. They help me piece samples for the store and like sewing crafts. Besides quilting, I also love machine embroidery and all you can do with it. Check out the Calendar tab to see some of our upcoming classes!
