MT Needleworks in Manassas, Virginia is a small enterprise serving individuals and small businesses looking for personalized and customized items. We primarily do embroidery, but we also monogram, cross-stitch, and custom quilt.
Unlike brick and mortar businesses, we don't require a minimum. Typically, if a client brings a single item that needs an embroidered name or logo, we can have it done the next day. Orders of 25 or more may need more time to process. Click on the photos below to view our gallery.
Our 9/11 Quilt
The F.L.A.G. quilt started as an idea just days after the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. From the drawing of the design to the final stitch, it took almost a year, with about 50 people working on the quilt. While some writing names on fabric, others were cutting, ironing, and sewing rows of fabric together. This was the first quilt I had ever done, and it would be the biggest. It measures 22 feet by 15 feet. The white stripes are 3x3 squares with the names of those on the planes, the towers, and the Pentagon. The red stripes and the blue border has white stars of the names of the rescue workers, like firefighters, police, and others that rushed in to try and help. The day before the 1 year anniversary of the attacks the quilt was presented to Senator Allen who was accompanied by the family of Charles Burligame, the pilot of the plane that flew into the Pentagon. We were able to show them exactly where his name was on the quilt. Our 9/11 quilt still hangs at the entrance of the Pentagon.
Meet The Owner
MT Needleworks started in 1994 as a hobby but after working 20+ years in State Government in the Supply Inventory arena I decided to become a stay at home mom. As a stay at home mom, I decided to go all-in by investing in my hobby and turning it into a business. Since then I've never looked back. Many of my customer's come back again and again to get that one of kind gift. What makes MT Needleworks different is that we sit down and find out what our clients envision and make suggests to get to the end results for what they need. I like to give my customers a hands-on approach to that process by them sitting down with me and looking over many different designs. First, we start by letting them choose their colors and then being able to show what it will look like before the final product. We strive to make "your idea" become something you or someone else will cherish.
