Earamichia “Encyclopedia” Brown’s love of fiber arts and all things craft began as a child. Earamichia’s family had a set of the World Book Encyclopedia series and the Childcraft – The How and Why Library. Within that Childcraft series there was a volume called “Make and Do,” of which she did plenty. Earamichia wanted to become a fashion designer, but settled for plan B. Earamichia’s love of crafts and fiber continued to flourish throughout the years. She became an avid knitter and in 2000, was introduced to quilting. Earamichia finds inspiration in her love of nature, family, friends and history.
