About Us

Hi, my name is Shannan Newkirk, I am the owner! My mom Tricia Meharg, and I started this business in 2004 mainly doing embroidery work. We have since grown into so much more. We lost Tricia in 2017 after a hard fought battle with cancer, but we know she has a HUGE smile on her face watching over our "little" shop.

I am married to Eric Newkirk and have 4 children Hope, Hannah, Hunter & Holly Brooke. They have basically been raised in this shop. We can't imagine life without the shop, it is our 2nd home. I started working just as a "hobby" for me, but it quickly became a full time job, that I love! Now that Hope and Hannah are older they have quickly become very involved and I hope that this business will stay in our family for generations to come!

We decided it was time to expand our little shop beyond the walls of our small town Lonoke, AR so, we are glad you are here online enjoying this addition. In October of 2022 we open our second store front "Tricia's Apparel & Gifts", where we separated our adult apparel and gift items to a location just around the corner. Making the original store a full children's boutique that we have renamed from "Tricia's Stitches" to "Tricia's Tots & Toddlers" in which we continue to do our personalization. With the HUGE help of Susan Stewart who takes care of all of your embroidery needs and Amy Pasley who is there for all of your customized T-Shirts + more!

We hope that you enjoy shopping our small business and find something you love!
