Anna’s lifelong obsession with textiles began with her fascination with scissors and the sewing machine. One cut the fabric apart and the other put it back together again. By wiggling herself in between those two, she has been able to express herself creatively in ways that words cannot.
Now she spends most of her days cutting fabric apart and sewing it back together again at Cloth Studio. With almost 30 years of experience doing complex math equations and sewing straight Anna creates magic in the workroom for all of our happy customers!
Anna tries to enjoy coffee, but loves drinking tea. She considers herself an expert in weekend sun bathing and an aspiring gold medalist in the winter knitting olympics.
Rily, found her love of design while in elementary school, creating all kinds of hand crafted goods for herself, her family and her friends.
Having a keen sense for design and craftsmanship drove Rily to study Interior Design and Fashion bringing a deep appreciation of textiles and material culture. This perfect marriage between interests and skill shines through when she is behind a sewing machine, wielding shears or sewing fine details by hand.

Wendy discovered her love of sewing and design at an early age, with an embroidery hoop, a scrap of fabric and a cup of beads. Using these materials she hand stitched intricate designs to create tiny pillows and handkerchiefs. Over the last few year Wendy has been completing her Fashion and Technology Degree at the Wilson School of Design at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and will graduate Spring 2019. Wendy debuted her first couture collection at the SS19 Vancouver Fashion Week in September 2018 to critical acclaim and her attention to detail and intricate handwork literally stole the show! Her love of sewing and attention to detail continues daily at Clothstudio where she makes curtains and pillows and bedding using Belgian linen.
An expert avocado toast maker and chilli paneer connoisseur, Wendy loves elephants and one day plans on traveling to an elephant sanctuary to volunteer and spend time learning about her favourite animal.
