After 25 years, Justin Stitches has re-imagined itself! Vancouver's favourite embroidery store just got more inspired. We've changed our look, our name, added more fun ways for you to create and customize, while we collect and curate great art and design.
It happens right here, on Granville Island, Vancouver B.C.
