MARINETTE — One of Marinette’s downtown businesses has moved to a new building, just a hop, skip and a jump from its old space. 

Brenda Nord, owner and seamstress of the downtown alterations shop Stitch N Time Alterations LLC, 1708 Main St., announced this week that Stitch N Time made the move to 1723 Main St., the old Book World store front, during July. The new space will allow her to do larger projects such as tents and sailboats, she said. 

“Now there’s nothing too big or too small,” Nord said. 

Nord has been sewing and working with clothing for years, and previously ran Clean Machine Alterations in her hometown of Green Bay. She and her husband Jonathan Nord, a Marinette native, moved to the area in 2007. Nord commuted to Green Bay for five years before she sold Clean Machine Alterations, and in August 2016, she opened Stitch N Time on Ludington Street before moving to Main Street later in the year. 

Stitch N Time offers alterations including zippers, hemming, patching, snaps, tapers, waists taken in and let out, custom fittings, boat covers, grommets and much more. The Nords also offer custom leather work, including gun holsters, rifle slings, embossed belts, key fobs, checkbook covers and trinket pouches. Individuals, businesses or organizations can also get custom embroidery on clothing, such as names or logos and decorations.

The Nords are the fourth owners of the Watson Brothers building at 1723 Main St. since it was built in 1885. 

“The building kind of fell into our hands,” said Jonathan Nord.
