Stitch & Stone

Entrepreneur of the Year presented by RBC

I started Stitch & Stone with one thing in mind. Create an inspiring space for women of all shapes, sizes and walks of life to come and lose themselves for just a brief moment in time. I knew there was a gap in the market for this type of business for we everyday women. Inspired by my friends, family and amazing women all around me, I was on a mission to change the way we shopped, focusing on the experience first and the product second. A place where women would leave feeling 100% authentically themselves. This year marks our 5th year in business, and we couldn’t be more excited for the next 5!!
