Here at Stitch Texas, we are totally in love with the business and relish in the details. We have built a team of smart, motivated apparel technicians who all feel lucky to be doing what we do right here in Austin, TX.
Vesta Garcia - co-founder, fire-putter-outer, and data fundamentalist
Kristopher Stevens - co-owner, CAD system cowboy, production manager, and very sharp dresser
Angie Ramirez - head of development, lead pattern maker, grader, and excellent roller skater
Rebekah Hoffer - technical and creative designer, pattern maker, sewing trainer, and dancing queen
Brian Allmand - cutter, chainstitcher, and excellent skater (the other skating)
Arlene Berthiaume - sample maker, cowgirl, and damn good cook
Richard Cole - denim specialist, industrial sewing machine technician, and dad joke connoisseur
Cody Armbruster - cutter, CAD up-and-comer, and really good at the sportsball
Sam Rongstad - pattern maker, stitch ninja, and stronger than you are
Daniela Vlad - sample maker, 1/2 of Darlene, and not messing around, y'all
Anne Marie Beard - project manager, office squirrel, and wood nymph
Alex Mitchell - production supervisor, veteran, and quick study
Kum Lacy - production stitcher, industry veteran, and we're still trying to catch her in a bad mood
Annastacia Muthini - sample stitcher, speedster on the machine, and maybe not so sure about the rest of us
