History of the Company

The owners of Uncommon Threads Embroidery have always been entrepreneurs at heart. Rick and Theresa Cody started their first business, Crafter’s Showplace in March of 1992. Crafter’s Showplace was a unique retail store located in Downtown Shawnee that offered consumers hand-crafted items and gifts. Five years after opening Crafter’s, the Cody’s decided to expand their business market by adding embroidery to their list of services. In 1997, Crafter’s Showplace and the embroidery operations merged into one company called Uncommon Threads. Since then, Uncommon Threads has continued to grow and expand its’ operations.

“Being an entrepreneur means you have to put your mind, body, and soul into your business. It has to be your passion…Uncommon Threads is my passion.” – Theresa Cody
