About US

In 2014, Decorative Stitch opened its doors bringing the best quality Sewing Machines, Fabric, Classes and Sewing Machine Repair services to the Detroit Market, Canada and beyond! Decorative Stitch is a family business founded by stepmother/daughter duo Mary Verstraete and Sara Gallegos. After spending 34 years in the telecommunications industry, Mary retired from her "first career" and approached Sara Gallegos, Host of PBS Show "Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting" with the idea of opening a Quilting and Sewing Machine Store. Decorative Stitch proudly offers the full line of Baby Lock Sewing Machines, more than 4,000 bolts of quilting fabric, notions, Madeira, Aurifil, Glide threads and more, AccuQuilt, Creative Grids, Kimberbell and many other sewing products!

Customer Service, Support and Education are the hallmarks of Decorative Stitch. Our in-house Baby Lock Certified Technician services and repairs all Baby Lock sergers, sewing, quilting, single and multi-needle embroidery machines. Sara Gallegos and team provided unlimited group owners lessons to customers who purchase from Decorative Stitch and creative classes for all sewists. Our sales staff is made up of Baby Lock lovers and talented sewists ready to offer fabric consultation, creative support, and guidance in your sewing endeavors. We offer classes of all kinds (quilting, garments, bag making, etc) and bring in Nationally Known Educators for our hands-on Sewing Machine events.  

Decorative Stitch is proud to be your trusted source for all serger, sewing, quilting and embroidery needs. We ship from our webstore anywhere in the United States and encourage regional customers to make a special trip to see our 6,000 square sewing and quilting shop. We are so much more than just a sewing store and cannot wait to invite you into our Sewing Community!
