Hi, I’m Marissa Waldrop.
I’m not your typical fit in the box kind of person. I’d rather take that box and create something amazing and new with it. I ask what else is possible and I expect to find an answer.
I have a Bachelors of Science in Communication, 5 years of experience in energy movement therapy, and over 25 years of experience in sewing design, manipulation and pattern work. If you ask if I can sew it, the answer is YES! I can tell you about the boring stuff, you know, all the accomplishments and experience I have, but I’d rather show you what you can create for yourself. That’s where the fun is.
I have many interests and they don’t all fall in a nice strait line. I like to mash them together and see what happens. It’s like magic. That’s how I started Marissa’s Thread. It’s my place to open up to the world, let you see my magic and create some for yourselves..
In September of 2018 I was asked to design an underwear pattern for girls and women. Saying yes to that changed the course of my life. Now I get to teach sewing skills and mentor women and girls all over the world. Along with sewing instruction, I also lead Kenya garden projects through 100 Humanitarians.
Mom to 4 boys, wife, lover of dancing, Creative at heart, international speaker, board member of 100 Humanitarians International, eclectic business owner. Lets see what we can create.
