Erin Fletcher was introduced to the craft of bookbinding at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This initial exposure created a desire to culture a deeper understanding of the trade. In 2010, Erin entered the bookbinding program at the North Bennet Street School. She received training in both historical and contemporary binding techniques from early codex structures to case bindings to fine leatherwork.
In 2012, she established her business, Herringbone Bindery, located in a shared studio space in the Fort Point neighborhood of South Boston. Herringbone Bindery offers a variety of hand bookbinding and box-making services to a range of clients and institutions. She teaches in the Continuing Education department at North Bennet and as a co-teacher for the Middle School Book Arts Program. Her work has been exhibited domestically and internationally, and is held in both private and institution collections.
