hello! my name is cherie and i’m just another girl who loves to make things, take pictures of them and then blog about it. i live in san francisco, california with my partner and 2 year old daughter and i am convinced it’s the best city in the world.
i had a sudden desire to learn how to sew in my 20s and my mom taught me how to use a sewing machine. now it’s become one of the only things i want to do. EVER. i sew things for babies, kids, the home, women’s clothing and accessories. I also do simple crafts, like to bake, take pictures, knit every once in awhile and try all sorts of new things, like carving my own stamps or dyeing fabric. join me on my crafting and sewing adventures! it’s always more fun when others join in.
about the name, “you & mie”:
mie is my middle name. it is japanese and has been a part of my identity for a long time. as a kid, I hated it because no one could pronounce it correctly. as an adult, i’ve embraced it because it’s unique and is a symbol of my heritage. most people pronounce it as “me,” which is why i named my shop “you & mie.” it’s actually pronounced “mee-eh”
