We are so excited to share these photos from our Grand Opening Event on November 12. While Sweetest Stitch has been doing business on the web for just under two years, this was a major mile stone toward achieving a dream for owner Niki. Getting to know and help Sweetest Stitch customers in person is an important part of offering you the best service and supporting the local business community in Richmond.

We're so grateful for partners who joined us including Sugar Soiree, Shanel the DJ, Stephanie Dennehy, Real Fine Place interiors, our models, and local bloggers. 

Grand Opening

As we prepared to open the store, a line began to form outside. As we opened the doors, the first 30 guests receives adorable goody bags filled with goodies and coupons to local businesses.


Guests were most excited about the high quality staples they found to add to their wardrobes. Fall is all about layering! Olive, rust, lilac, and grey are our favorites of the season!

Sugar Soiree

Sugar Soiree kept everyone fueled with their fun cotton candy. Guests enjoyed flavors like Cherry Vanilla, Grape Soda, and Salted Caramel. We heard they were only 15 calories! We'll take two please...

Shanel the DJ

Shanel spun the sounds all night keeping the vibe girly and lively. She is wearing this adorable dress from the sale rack. Only $30!


You need bubbly to truly celebrate, right? Thank you for all the cheers and kind words over champagne and rose. 

One of our models, Shasta, is wearing a dress that sold out that night. Can we interest you in this pretty little number? Local fashion blogger Megan of Sweet Sauce Blog is wearing our Dream in Denim Jeans and took home a pink waffle body suit not yet listed on the site.

A lot of our guests were impressed with our light fixtures, tables, and clothing racks. Guess what?! They were made right here in Richmond by our friend Amanda of Real Fine Place. We look forward to carrying more of her hand made items in the store for you to add to your home!

Here are some more photos from one of our favorite nights ever...
