My name is Alyssa.
Owner and operator of Miella Fabrics.
Miella (pronounced “My-Ella”) was founded in July 2020.
When you shop at Miella, you are shopping at a small business, supporting a small family in Camrose Alberta. I am a one women owned business with the help of two amazing, virtual ladies: Mélanie & Jennifer.
Miella refers to my 2 daughters: Mila and Raiella. They are my life and I always wanted a business collaborating their names!
A little about myself:
I started as a Graphics designer, making business assets/branding packages (logos, menus… ect), creating seamless images for printing projects and designing websites. I came into the fabric world June 2020.
From August 2009 to February 2010, I started in retail merchandising and help people find what they were looking for. Soon after, I grew from a merchandiser to an assistant manager from my strong work ethic to make jobs easier on myself and the people I worked with. Six months into being an assistant, I moved to co-manager, managing Canada West's highest volume ran store for Western Canada in the West Edmonton mall. I was pulled in 2012 to pull a store from the ground up managing it myself as the store manager.
About a year later, I was poached by Guess and was brought to Guess to do marketing, Promotions, visual presentation and the stock house with a big bump in pay. While with Guess, I found out I was pregnant with my youngest daughter Mila who is now 8 years old..
I was going to be a mom, I was so scared. When I found out I was pregnant at 2 months, I went on maternity leave 6 months later, taking care of my eldest daughter Raiella (now 11 years old), another tiny human I could call my daughter and be a mom to.
Fast forward to today, I am so proud of my business and the friendships I made on this wonderful journey working alongside my husband Sean!
I mostly take care of all your orders shipping & receiving, so if something arrives with extra or something missing, that’s usually me!! My husband helps me cut when I need it, but he's the most amazing stay at home dad I could ask for! He does everything I used to do, from school lunches, to school meetings, to cooking and laundry, so I can do more here at Miella!
I am so thrilled to say we have had over 7,650 orders since 2020.
I am an easy going person, they say I’m a people pleaser, so if you have any question, I am happy to help you!
