    FINtastic Stitches is a student based enterprise that does custom embroidery for customers. By operating this business students are involved in a variety of different aspects of running an enterprise as well as learning the art of custom embroidery for the students that are so inclined. Our customers are able to bring in items that they wish to have embroidered, and we also offer a limited line of items for purchase with embroidery. We conduct two or three open houses a year, where we set up a store like atmosphere, and invite the staff and our community customers to come in and place orders for occasions like Christmas and Spring Break. By operating this business students have the opportunity to learn skills such as advertising, marketing, ordering merchandise, inventory, customer service, retail sales, job processing and ordering, accounting, and of course actual embroidery to include creating monograms or designs, preparing the item, setting up the machine and the operating of the machine.
