How did you choose your location?
My business started with me embroidering out of my home at night to make extra money. Over time, it had gotten to a point where I was making more money at night than I was at my day job at a doctor's office. I started out renting a small kiosk in a mall in Savannah, GA. Within the next ten years, I expanded my kiosk to a bigger one, and then an even bigger one. I live an hour north, so I had to commute daily. I did this for 10 years. The business had gotten so popular, that I felt confident in opening up a storefront in my home town, Statesboro, Georgia. Statesboro is home to Georgia Southern University, a large university with over 24,000 students.

Tell us about Sew Much Fun. What’s behind the name?
The way I came up with the name of the business was really simple. I wanted something that people said all the time, not realizing the "word or phrase" would also pertain to my business. I noticed people saying the phrase "so much fun" all the time. So, I changed the spelling, and came up with Sew Much Fun.
Why do you and your customers love SCOUT?
Scout is probably our top brand in the store. Our customers love it because it is durable, never gets damaged, cleans up easily. The favorite activity here in the fall is football, of course, just like everywhere else in the US. Scout offers so many different products and patterns and my customers love it.
Any merchandising tips for SCOUT product?
Something new we are doing with some of our Scout products is applying vinyl monograms to it. This works great for the items that we are not able to embroider. Nothing beats the beauty of embroidery, but vinyl is great if it cannot be embroidered!
What’s your favorite SCOUT pattern this winter?
My favorite Scout pattern this year is definitely Pearly Gates.
