Now in our 10th year, we are now operating out of a 6,000 sqft shop sitting on 3 acres. With a vision and a goal to be the Gulf Coast go to canvas & upholstery shop, we spared no expense for our clients. With taking the up most pride in everything we do, and treating every project as if it was our own, quickly those standards, we set ourselves apart from our competitors.

In 2016, it was time for Southern Stitch to Find somewhere to call home forever with room to grow. After passing this abandoned building just before our shop on Creosote, for nearly a decade. We made a move on it. Walking into it for the first time before making an offer, we knew this was home and was going to make it happen one way or the other!

Just moving in new production shop. Custom built to our show flow!

We continue our learning by attending Regional & National workshops by the Marine Fabricators Association ( MFA) and the Advance Textiles Association ( ATA). Also, we are accredited members of both the MFA & ATA. Steven is also a sitting board member of Marine Fabricators Association.

With Lillie B the day we received our first shirts for Southern Stitch!

"Providing our past, current, and future clients with the industries leading materials, equipment, and technology along with second to none, customer service and craftsmanship, one stitch at a time!​"

From the shirt on our back to the sails that sail us at sea. Southern Stitch is not another 9 to 5 shop. We take extreme pride in our Marine Canvas & Upholstery, that’s why here, “All marine work is done for a boater by a boater! " The pride of treating each job as if it was our own runs deep in our roots and expectations. With over 20 years of hands on canvas and upholstery experience, our work is superior to others. The superb craftsmanship and functionality that comes along with the job, does not compare. Browse around and check out our photo albums to see for yourself . ☺
