Maria of Mia’s Creations
Niki Stringer from Roonie Ranching
Alyssa at Keep Calm and Carrion
Our first stop is to visit Maria at Mia’s Creations. Maria is a bag maker and quilter. She is a pattern tester for several independent bag designers and just recently tested a quilt pattern. Maria sent me this photo of her amazing bag. Aren’t you wondering what her other 3 bags look like? Visit her and find out, she is a lovely person who I’ve had a great time getting to know.
Next, say hello to Niki Stringer of Roonie Ranching. Niki sews in Michigan when she can steal a few moments to herself from raising her two kids. She taught herself to sew on a machine she picked up on sale to combat boredom during her third year of law school. After about a decade of neglect, the machine was revived so Niki could tackle some great sewing tutorials she found on Pinterest, which is how she really learned how to sew. Two machines later, she now tackles sewing projects ranging from dresses for her six-year-old-daughter to quilted table runners, but her true love is bags of all shapes and sizes. She and her twin sister, Erin, created Roonie Ranching to document their creative ventures in an effort to avoid clogging up each other’s email inboxes with endless photos of their newest creations. Niki is awesome and is the person who inspired me to do this blog tour – thanks, Niki!
And finally today, pop in on Alyssa Carrion at Keep Calm and Carrion, a 31 year old mother of 2 who lives in Port Angeles, WA. Alyssa used to be an Army officer, but now spends her time raising Inara (5) and Connor (2), while doing lots of sewing and pattern testing. While most of her sewing time is spent making things for her littles, she loves the chance to sew tops and bags for herself as well. Alyssa is a really cool person and a great sewist, I know you will have fun checking out her work!
See you tomorrow!
