About Us


Situated on Main Street in Bird Island, you will 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 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 and the 4th helps work on machines from time to time. They help me piece samples for the store and like sewing crafts. Besides quilting, I love machine embroidery and all you can do with it. Check out the Calendar tab to see some of our upcoming classes.
