The idea of having her own clothing business was always a dream in the back of Janine Combess’ mind. This dream became a reality when Creative Stitches opened as an in-home embroidery
business in 1999.
Combess, a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in Family Consumer Science, began her business in a room over the garage. The business soon outgrew the space and she expanded to the entire basement of her home. She again outgrew her surroundings a year later and opened her shop located at 210 Kings Daughters Drive, Suite 200, in Frankfort, Kentucky in 2003.
With this move, Creative Stitches not only expanded in size by adding a showroom and a separate work room, but also became a full-line embroidered clothing business that could meet the needs of individuals and organizations needing 1 or 10,000 pieces of customized clothing. Creative Stitches now offers embroidery, monogramming, garment printing, screen printing, and heat press services, as well as a complete line of shirts, jackets, totes, caps, etc.
Mrs. Combess and her staff believe that each customer’s order is her most important and strive to serve everyone with the “All About U” attitude for which she has become known.
