For as long as Erica can remember, fashion has been her calling. After graduating from FIT in 2012, she found herself working in the swimwear industry, heading the e-commerce departments for multiple brands. While her strengths lied within merchandising, design and creation were her passion. While she found herself gravitating towards textiles in general, she couldn't find a medium she absolutely loved. In 2015 she watched a few youtube tutorials and started hand embroidering in her free time - on anything she could get her hands on. She especially loved adding delicate features to shorts and denim jackets. Erica started putting her work on her personal Instagram and would sell pieces to friends and family almost immediately.
Soon after, she decided she wanted to purchase an embroidery machine to speed up the creation process but still wanted a hand made feel to the pieces she was creating. She found an old 1930's chainstitch embroidery machine on eBay, and Gypstitch Embroidery was born. Every day, Erica is learning something new about her Singer114w103, in which she manually hand cranks every patch and denim jacket she makes - making each piece hand made and one of a kind.
Erica found herself receiving tons of inquiries regarding custom wedding jackets and it is now a core part of her business. She loves working with couples to make their dream jackets a reality and to make their special day a little more special.

I am absolutely in LOVE with the custom embroidered jacket that Erica made for me for my upcoming wedding. To have something so personal for such a special day means the world to me. She was extremely responsive, easy to communicate with, and created a beautiful design for me. I seriously cannot wait to wear it! I had the most incredible experience with her from day one. I will definitely be coming back for more custom jackets in the future. If you want to add something unique and different to your wedding photos, (and don't forget bridal shower and bachelorette!) get in touch with Erica! She will no doubt deliver amazing work.Sent on 07/21/2018
