STAND-UP LIBRARIAN DESIGNS

Fashions that are literary fabulous!
I originally launched Meredith Myers Designs in 2004 after finding my grandmother's sewing machine collecting dust in the garage. It gave me something fun to do while I applied for jobs and tried to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Since I'd always had an eye for fashion and fabric, it made sense that if I couldn't find what I wanted in stores, I might as well make it myself!
Then I decided to go be a librarian...and move to Los Angeles. So the poor sewing machine that I loved so much went back to collecting dust in the garage. However after five years in LA and no library jobs on the horizon, I found myself back in Florida in February 2012 sitting at that sewing machine again.
As the Stand-Up Librarian, (a term I created in 2010 after graduating with my Masters degree in Library & Information Sciences), my mission has always been to educate and entertain people about the importance of literacy and libraries. I believe all of us can be advocates for libraries whether we work in them or not. So in addition to my literary comedy performances, videos, and witty commentary on StandUpLibrarian.com, I am now promoting literacy with STAND-UP LIBRARIAN DESIGNS!
I say the only thing cooler than reading a good book is WEARING IT, so with each literary purse, hat, skirt, or headband, I hope to continue to share with the world the importance and necessity of our libraries and books. All products are made to order by me (when I am not on stage or at the library.) The fabrics are also chosen by me - depending on season, availability and pure inspiration by what books I am reading at the time! All bags are fully lined in coordinating fabrics and contain strong zippers so you won't lose that library card. I offer various price ranges so whether you are a library student, library director or bestselling author, you can find a Stand-Up Librarian original in your price range!
I hope you will enjoy my products as much as I love making them.
Stand up for libraries!
