 Kayli Pearsall started her company in 2001. Her business based out of Orange California has operated under different names. It became The Loving Stich in 2008. Growing up Pearsall always kept a T-shirt for the most critical events in her life.

 “I was not willing to get rid of those memories,” Pearsall said.

Pearsall recalls a homecoming football game during her senior year of high school and her college sorority initiation as her most impactful T-shirts.

“Every T-Shirt has a memory, and every memory has a T-Shirt,” Pearsall said.

Pearsall graduated from The University of Southern California with a degree in sociology. Her college experience inspired her to pursue a passion.

She worked other jobs and careers to have reliable income because Pearsall and her husband had to care for their children. However, she never lost sight of her goal to start a stitching business.

She stitched on the side hoping to earn enough money to make it her primary revenue stream someday. Pearsall dealt with people skeptical of her ambition.

“It took years of tenacity and persistence,” Pearsall said.

Pearsall believes she can offer customers more options than other stitch designers.

“It’s not {just} a traditional grandma quilt,” Pearsall said.

Pearsall said graphic T-shirts are becoming more popular.

It has taken on its own world,” Pearsall said.

She encourages women to go after their goals even if they are not able to achieve them overnight.
