Instagram Takeover: Essential Creations

For the latest edition of Wearables' Instagram Takeover, we headed to the Windy City. Sandtricia Andrews-Strickland, president of Essential Creations Chicago, took over our Instagram page for a day to show off her small apparel-decorating shop. (See previous installments of the ongoing series herehere and here.)

Essential Creations is stocked with five embroidery heads, a sublimation printer, heat presses and other decoration equipment. Andrews-Strickland says her shop serves Greek organizations, schools, clubs and other small businesses.

Check out some highlights from her takeover below.
