From t-shirts to keepsake: Cherishing past memories with embroidered t-shirt quilt

embroidered t-shirt quilt made from old t-shirts

(LINCOLN, NE) September 23, 2019—Recent MemoryStitch customer Pamela Cash lost her husband earlier this year. As a big Kentucky basketball fan - as well as a Nascar fan - Cash’s husband left behind a large collection of t-shirts. Their children took many of the shirts home with them, but Cash wanted to create a keepsake for herself with the remaining t-shirts.

“I lost my youngest son 17 years ago and I had a quilt made of his t-shirts which I still have and cherish very much. So that was one of the first things I wanted to do with all my husband's tees when he passed away,” said Cash. 

She turned to MemoryStitch to help her with the process. “I saw [MemoryStitch’s] Facebook page and liked the quality of work. Thanks so much for being so timely with the delivery. I can't believe it came so quickly.”

After placing her order, Cash reached out to the MemoryStitch team to see if embroidery was an option, so she could add her husband’s name and “Beloved Husband” on the backside of the quilt. The MemoryStitch team had just launched embroidery as a custom product add-on and were happy to add the special touch to Cash’s quilt. 

Cash was thrilled to receive her embroidered quilt - a keepsake that will forever hold memories of her and her husband’s annual trips to the car races, as well as their cruises and other travels. “I absolutely love my quilt and I know I will enjoy it for many years to come,” said Cash.

Now, all MemoryStitch customers have the opportunity to use embroidery as a way to memorialize the quilt, like Cash, or add a custom message to commemorate an event or add a special touch on a gift to a loved one.

"Our goal is to help people tell their stories through their well-loved t-shirts that often hold special memories.  With the addition of embroidery, customers can further tell their story by adding a personalized message,” said Steve Nabity, Chief Energizing Officer.

Embroidery is now available on their website. Customers can personalize their t-shirt quilts even more than before with the custom product add-on. For more information on MemoryStitch and their latest product releases, visit
