Welcome to our series of posts introducing who we are at Storiarts! We're always asking you to share with us on social media so we figure it was time to share with you.




Today meet Emily, our customer service expert, shipper, and accounting extraordinaire!


What do you do at Storiarts?

I handle customer service and bookkeeping, ship scarves, and do some sewing as well.  And I like to offer suggestions about what Storiarts should make next!

What are your favorite books?

As an English Lit major, I spent a lot of time studying the classics.  I love anything by Fitzgerald, Austen, Dickens, and Anne Bronte.  Some of my all-time favorites are the stories of David in the Bible (1 & 2 Samuel), C.S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces andThe Great Divorce, My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, the graphic novel Watchmen by Alan Moore, and John Updike’s prose (but not often his content).

With three kids at home, I’m mostly reading children’s literature now.  Favorite read-aloud stories include anything by Sandra Boynton, Madeline, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Anne of Green Gables series, Harry Potter, and the Little House books.

What is your favorite Storiarts product?

I guess I would have to say the Anne scarf since I had a hand in making this one.  I encouraged Tori to use this book and helped choose the passage.  And I had the privilege of showing Tori the movies for the first time!

I also really love the Alice in Wonderland scarf.  Tori’s artwork adds so much to an already beautiful product which makes this piece especially unique. 



What do you do for fun?

I like making my kids laugh, teaching them new things, and watching them grow.  I especially love reading with them.  In my life before kids, I did crafts and photography and writing.  These days, I usually just collapse on the couch with a glass of wine after the kids are asleep!
