I love to knit and I love to shop handmade! I learned to knit 10 years ago when I was in the Peace Corps in Russia. I bought some yarn at the market and the little old lady who lived next door to me taught me to knit. I knit many scarves in Russia and when I returned I took a few classes and have been knitting ever since! I love designing new things, everything in my shop is an original design. I also love to shop for vintage items to include in my knitting, especially buttons.
For me, quilting has been something ultra-personal, my own thing. I learned a little from people, a lot from books, but mainly it's been me in a room by myself for the last 10 years developing my own technique. Now I am opening that world up and trying to teach my approach to others.
I've always loved sewing, so opening my own business was something that was bound to happen. In 2006, after many compliments from friends and family about the bags I made for myself, I decided to open up my own company. The company was created as a way to share my ideas and creative handbags, accessories and clothing to the world. All myla's bags creations are a result of my passion for design as well as my intense focus on craft, which ensures that all my products are durably constructed, stylish, fun, & unique. I hope that you have a long and enjoyable relationship with my handbags. Please feel free to check out all I have to offer!
