Instructor: Myriah van de Kraats
Born and raised in Sonoma County, Myriah van de Kraats has always loved being creative. She grew up with every Klutz craft book she could get her hands on. She was always making things for friends and family, from pot holders to melty beads. In school Myriah learned to cross-stitch, embroider, knit and crochet which lead her down a new path of crafting. Once she mastered the art of handwork she wanted to teach the world to sew! In college she got sucked into the world of theatre costuming and got her BA in Theatre with an emphasis on costume construction, at SFSU. Currently she works 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 a one student at a time!
