Making it with Myriah
Born and raised in Sonoma County, CA I have always loved creativity. I grew up with every Klutz craft book I could get my hands on. I was always making things for friends and family, from pot holders to melty beads. In school I learned to cross-stitch, embroider, knit and crochet, which led me down a new path of handwork. Once I mastered my handwork, I wanted to teach the everyone to sew! In college I got sucked into the world of theatrical costuming and got my BA in Theater with an emphasis in costume construction from San Francisco State University. After college I worked at Santa Rosa Junior College in the theater department during the school year and at Hello Stitch in the summer, teaching the world to sew one student at a time!
My husband and I very recently moved to Virginia for his work, in the middle of this pandemic, and are starting a new chapter. Seeing as there is not a lot of theater going on at the moment, I am excited for the opportunity to buy and operate my own long-arm machine and create people's quilt tops. I am currently working part time at Quilting Adventures and taking commissions from people. In the wise words of Dorey from finding Nemo, "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming." Or in my case sewing, sewing, sewing!
