Fountain business owner on pins and needles

In October of 2014 the Fillmore County Journal published an article about Terri Allen of Fountain, Minn. who had started her business, Terri’s Tender Lovin’ Stitches, in March of that year.

Within months, the business is now expanding with its move into the former Willie’s Grocery and Locker building at 92 Main Street in Fountain. The building was purchased in November 2014 by Jackie Hrstka and Ron Huey. A wall was built down the center of the building to separate the interior space into two rooms with the possibility of a third space. Terri’s Tender Lovin’ Stitches will be located on the north side of the building.

The doors will open on February 2, 2015 and Allen explains that it has been a lot of work, which she expected, but “it is going to be so nice”, she said. There will be a lot more space, not only for doing her work, but also for two dressing rooms which have been built along with a platform for girls to stand on when trying on their dresses for alterations.

Her goal is to “make people happy” by continuing to offer her specialty services including embroidery, sewing, mending, and special projects as she has in the past, some of which can be seen on the business Facebook page (facebook/Terri’s Tender Lovin’ Stitches) and on the Facebook page of the Fillmore County Journal (facebook/fillmorecountyjournal).

Allen is grateful for her family and friends that have supported her through this big step, which include her sons, Andrew and Joshua, her boyfriend, Scott Fingerson, her dad, and her brother. Friends including Ib Gatzke and Brenda Jeche among others have also helped to get things ready for the opening of the business in its new location.

The floor has been replaced, painting has been done, carpeting and linoleum have been laid, so things will move along quickly now as Allen begins bringing in her equipment and supplies.

Allen plans on having displays in the front windows to show examples of her work and will have mannequins dressed to show some of the items offered in the business and has glass display cases which will soon be filled with items as well.

Moving from a home-based business into a building there are many things that are needed, most of which Allen already has, including a second embroidery machine which has 15 needles instead of the six needles her other machine has. She will be using some of the shelving that .....
