How it Started

We started with a single embroidery machine, in my garage office in the very first home we ever owned. Originally named Texas Embroidery Shop, we had a good clientele in that mini shop, some small but steady growth in the mid-2000s. A move in 2006 brought us to a new county in a new community over 60 miles away from our first home. This new community helped us grow as it grew from 2800 people when we moved in, to over 12,000 in only 10 years. Growth forced us to look outside our new community to the local area and we were fortunate enough to find acreage on which we could build our new shop. Service all of NE Texas and beyond from this new home base.

From day one I wanted to provide professional yet a personal experience for every customer that walked through my door. As we grew and added services we have been fortunate to maintain that personal touch. We’ve added machines, grown with technology and continued to keep the relationships personal. You will not be treated like a number from the big guys. Left not knowing the status of an order or when your items will arrive. We pride ourselves in meeting deadlines and giving you products based on your budget – not over it.

Our Mission

Spirit Stitches was started by Carrie Wells back in 2004 under the name Texas Embroidery Shop.

An employment move brought them to the small community of Melissa, Texas in 2006. With the formally renaming 2008 to Spirit Stitches and Print to accommodate all the products the business produced.

In 2010 brought more change as Brad came on board as full time screen printer to handle the growth. Starting late 2015 more change happened as the construction of a new shop was started.

This new workshop on the couples acreage moved them to the border of Fannin and Collin counties. After the new workshop was completed additional equipment was purchased and the growth continues.

Brads edits all designs in preparation for print, creates and burns all screens as well as operating the automatic and manual screen presses.


Maizey comes from a varied work background. Not often does she have to “bark” orders, but she will when it doesn’t met standards.
