Union Stitch & Design
Union Stitch & Design was founded in 2015 by Denver native Melissa Gallic.  Her passion for her craft shifted from hobby to profession when she began creating custom clothing for her two children, Miles & Lincoln.  Turning a modest home office into a face-paced sewing studio, Melissa designs, fabricates, hand-sews, and ships each Union Stitch & Design apron or linen personally.  Her technical ability and design sense combine to create truly one-of-a-kind kitchen & dining wares for both the professional and at-home chef.
