Several years ago, Crystal Amon came across an opportunity to work in a sewing shop, doing embroidery.
“I’ve always been artistic and creative, and always enjoyed sewing and making stuff,” she says. “So I said, ‘what the heck, let’s try it.’”
Though a knee replacement took her away from that position five years later, by that time, Amon thought it might be time to make a go of it on her own. On November 1, she brought that plan to fruition with the opening of CC Embroidery, Vinyl Designs and Gift Shop in Williamston
“I made the investment,” says Amon. “I knew what to do and my husband supported me and said, ‘this is your dream, let’s go for it.’”
The 1,000 square foot CC Embroidery, Vinyl Designs and Gift Shop offers pre-made and made-to-order apparel, accessories, window decals, soy wax candles, baby apparel and more.
“I would say 95 percent of everything that is in the store is made here, Amon says. “I do beaded jewelry, I make little baby clothes, and the handbags are all handmade.”
