When Megan Eckman went to a craft store in 2009, she was shocked to see that they were still selling the same day of the week patterns she had sewn with her grandmother when she was seven. Adamant that there was no way she was going to sew geese in bonnets again, she created Studio MME to design approachable embroidery for modern stitchers. Together with her partner and CFO (Chief Feline Officer), she runs the business in beautiful Washington just a stone’s throw from Portland.
