We caught up with the dream team, Ashley Padmore (right) and Whitney Washington(left), to talk about landing in Memphis during the pandemic and building their custom chainstitch embroidery business.
How did you meet?
We met working as chainstitch embroiderers for a major retailer last year while living in NYC.
Why did you launch We Tight Knit?
We love chainstitch embroidery and enjoy helping tell someone’s story through hand-cranked designs. It’s like a tattoo for your clothes! We Tight Knit’s mission is to build community through collaboration, and with chainstitch embroidery, we literally have a hand in making clients’ vision a reality.
