North Webster-Tippecanoe Township Chamber of Commerce held at ribbon cutting at Threads Embroidery Shop, 713 S. Main St. (SR 13) Thursday. The public is invited to an Open House at Threads from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 16.
Besides embroidery, the company does screen printing, alterations and industrial sewing. Begun in Syracuse last year, the owners Rick and Jennifer Hicks moved the company to North Webster after buying the former Olson building. Threads recently acquired Vision Quest, Fort Wayne, which is being folded into the Threads organization.
