About Life's a Stitch
Making your team look sharp!
Life’s a Stitch began with one embroidery machine in a home office as a hobby. Five years later, we now offer embroidery, laser engraving, screen printing, dye-sublimation printing, trophies & awards, and vinyl graphics from a production location in Mocksville, North Carolina.
Our state-of-the-art equipment has allowed us to support over 25,000 orders in the past 5 years, many of which are international. We have established a reputation of excellence, having delivered from one to hundreds of glassware items on time and intact. It stems from our commitment for excellence and our respect and appreciation for our customers.
Although we have customers in all industries and areas, our connection to the emergency services community runs deep. Jeff and Amanda Barney are the owners of Life's a Stitch. Jeff is a US Navy, USS Enterprise, 9/11 veteran. In addition to serving as the General Manager of Life's a Stitch, he is a part-time police officer, volunteer firefighter/EMT-B, and past operator/Fire Marshal at a regional nuclear power station. Amanda also has experience as a firefighter and has obtained her EMT-Basic certification.
Our experience in running calls, ranging from structure fires to high-speed chases to mass casualty incidents tells us what works for the long haul. Nobody wants to be working a rollover wreck in the freezing rain at 3:00 AM with a jacket that is falling apart - we sell products that we believe in and continually solicit feedback to see how they are performing in the field.
On the softer side, we craft a wide variety of engraved glassware and wooden items for gifts that would be appropriate for weddings or any other occasion. This line built our business and we continue to be very successful in creating the perfect set of gifts for bridal and groom parties.
Supporting the needs of sports and businesses is also a huge part of our lineup. We craft teamwear, be it screen printed or embroidered, that sets a group apart. See some of our repeat buyers in the brag page. We excel in lightweight jackets for cheer, soccer, tennis, and lacrosse teams.
