After completing an arts degree at Simon Fraser University, Myles decided to pursue his love of design and sewing. This included working at Fabricana and receiving a diploma in Fashion Design and Technology at Kwantlen University College. After many years with Fabricana (he started in 1995), Myles' duties now include purchasing and social media (Myles is our Facebook personality!) and anything else that needs his attention. Outside of his career, Myles enjoys a wide variety of textile-related activities including designing and sewing clothing, quilting, home décor sewing, and knitting. Other interests include music (singing and playing the piano) and working on his 100-year-old house with husband, Jay.
Cassandra started at Fabricana in 2004 while working toward her diploma in Fashion Design. Although she has loved sewing since she was 10, she quickly realized that having strict sewing deadlines wasn't her thing. After finishing her diploma, Cassandra switched programs and graduated with a BBA in Entrepreneurial Leadership. Since graduating, Cassandra joined the Fabricana office team and is now involved in many areas of the company including inventory, notions, marketing, and social media (Cassandra runs our Twitter account). Cassandra likes to sew at a leisurely pace on projects such as bags and easy-to-fit clothing pieces, and would like to eventually try quilting. Her other interests include music, movies, books, and making cards.

"I've been shopping at Fabricana since I was 12 years old. Hands down it's the nicest place to shop for fabric in the lower mainland. And the new website is full of great information for sewers!"
