Longtime business is changing ownership

A long-time Pawhuska business is changing ownership and getting a new name. Located on west Main Street, The Willow Tree is now “Pick Your Stitch.” New owners are Jeffrey and Jamie Swan.

Jeffrey said, “Jamie and I have been life-long friends with Willow Tree owners Stephanie Priest and Judy Thomas. When they presented us with the opportunity to take over their business, we didn’t have to think very long about it. We decided this was a perfect fit.

“Jamie has always been artistic. In addition to using her talent to decorate our home, she loves to design and embellish fashion apparel. (Chuckling) With all this equipment, there is no limit to her creativity. She is excited to be able to work with our customers.”

Jamie worked in retail until the birth of the couple’s last child, 2-year old Bryxlie. While she has enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom, she is excited to get back into the mainstream. Jeffrey and Jamie are also parents to 12-year old Bryanna and 16-year old Brycen.

Pick Your Stitch will continue to offer qualify professional product services, such as signs, banners, apparel decorating and custom embroidery. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 918-287-1374. They are also available 24/7 at 918-440-2800.
