A B O U T


Hello! I'm Devon Iott, the blogger/founder of Miss Make. I grew up in rural Ohio and went to film school in Los Angeles. After working in the film industry for several years I found my way to teaching sewing, and I went on to teach at multiple places throughout the LA area. I lived in Nashville for a few years and worked for Singer-Viking-Pfaff sewing machines. Now I live in Atlanta and work for the fabric company Cotton+Steel (and I love my job!!).

I love learning how things are made, and then making them. I have this blog to chronicle my makes. While it's now primarily about sewing, I do occasionally post a recipe or non-sewing project. I hope you find it enjoyable, or at least a fun distraction during your day! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to shoot me an email at devon[at]missmake[dot]com.
