WinDesigns, owned by Lana and Kyle Kammerer, has opened up at its new location at 526 Lincoln Ave. They began the move on May 21, but only recently were they able to get everything set up and fully ready for business. The shop is open for customers Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The new location is much closer to home for the Kammerers, making it easier to get to work during poor weather conditions. The new location is also safer for their dog, Bear, who can wander around the yard without the worry of high traffic. WinDesigns offers custom apparel of all kinds, including embroidery, vinyl heat transfers and sublimation. They also offer custom work on bags, towels, stuffed toys and more. More information can be found on WinDesigns’ Facebook page, or call 353-9463. “We’re here to serve the community how we can!” Lana said.
