Martin Byrne, a former Commodore of the Royal St George Yacht Club and a three-time Dragon National and Edinburgh Cup champion, is the new owner of the long-running and iconic business A Stitch In Time Embroiderers Ltd.
Originally founded on the ideals of Simon Nolan of the Royal Irish Yacht Club, who aimed to provide a service to sailors in Dun Laoghaire where they could personalise their club or event clothing, Simon's brother David Nolan subsequently took over the business and moved it to Monkstown Farm.
The embroidery works and services developed over this time, but the sailing connection never diminished.
After David's passing, his son Markham ran the business for two years before Martin Byrne took over. Under Byrne's direction, the corporate and business aspect of the services provided by A Stitch In Time continued to develop.
A Stitch In Time's new premises in the heart of Dun Laoghaire's sailing community
Just recently, A Stitch In Time returned to where it all began, relocating to the Irish Lights Building in Dun Laoghaire Harbour in what's already being regarded as a major new step for the company – while also getting back to the roots of its business with the yacht clubs in Dun Laoghaire and throughout Dublin Bay.
