Mieka John is a knitwear designer whose passion beyond fiber is connecting with people and helping them on their path of creativity and growth. Originally from NYC, she now lives in beautiful Amsterdam spending her days uncovering her creativity and biking to the next appointment with a basket full of WIPs.
She loves diving into new techniques and using them to develop designs that are inspired by her travels around the world. Her background is in business and user experience design and she brings skills from those fields with her into the classroom to help break down concepts and techniques in different ways to help students learn with ease.
From the moment you enter the classroom, Mieka works to make sure your time together is safe, valuable, and fun! You'll leave feeling not only accomplished and armed with new skills but but that you've connected with your community. Outside of the classroom, you can usually find her with a sweater WIP on her needles, singing and dancing with headphones in! You can follow her on Instagram or Ravelry at @saltandstoneknits.
