Isn’t it the best feeling when you uncover a place that you know your friends will love and you are the first to find it?
Well if that’s the case you better hope your friends are not Living Huntington subscribers because we are about to let the cat out of the bag!
Welcome to Interthread Embroidery, a hidden gem with the look and feel of a 2nd floor boutique in Brooklyn, except it is located right here in Huntington Village!
Maryanne Desimone began her embroidery business in her basement over 20 years ago. Today, Interthread Embroidery occupies an eclectic retail space, lit with natural skylights, in an old factory right upstairs from Harbor Beverage in downtown Huntington.
Recently, we were able to visit Maryanne at Interthread to find out more about her unique local business.
What is Interthread Embroidery?
We are a personalization and custom embroidery service. We offer personalized gifts, gear and apparel to local businesses, schools and individuals alike. We partner with only the best businesses to supply an impressive array of unique, high quality promotional products and uniforms with lasting value for both personal and professional wear.
Do you embroider everything yourself in house?
Yes - my team and I work together both in the shop (and at my shop at home) to fulfill orders. I can have small orders done in as little as 24 hours and larger orders within 10 days. Quality to detail and customer satisfaction is very important to me – so I inspect every piece before it goes out to the customer to make sure we have done the best job possible.
What are your best selling items right now?
Our seasonal items are really hot right now. We have custom summer totes, beach bags, bathrobes, beach towels and some beautiful new Turkish throws and towels. We also always have quite a few custom baby gifts for newborns, christenings, and first birthdays. Finally, we have some really fun and fashionable women’s hand bags in assorted seasonal colors and styles (these are very popular this time of the year).
We always have our best sellers available in the shop where customers can come and see the items in person.
Ahh finally some needed sunshine today! Come to our office for all of your personalized summer gifts and goodies! This vibrant towel comes in an assortment of colors! And grab this summer themed cooler, perfect for the boat or a beach day! And you may want to even fill it up with some craft beer from the award winning @roscoebeercompany !!🌞🌊🍻 #summer #embroidery #intherthread #friends #fun #perfectgifts #towel #beach #sun #beer #cheers #summervibes #roscoe #roscoebeercompany #love
What occasions do you recommend your services are best for?
Anything and everything! Any holidays, celebrations or baby gifts are great. We customize for wedding parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, fundraisers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays, you name it!
Where do you source your items and could someone bring in their own item to get personalized?
We have only the best quality local vendors to source our clothing lines and products. We have the highest quality men’s and women’s active wear, but if someone wanted to bring in their own jacket, hat, or shirt, we are happy to personalize it exactly the way they desire. You really have to come in to the store to get a good feel for what we offer. We are happy to walk our customers through step by step to ensure their satisfaction.
