Kyra Fries’ first foray into sewing was a tiny pillow she quilted with her mom when she was about seven years old. Since then, she’s explored sewing all shapes and kinds of garments, from Halloween costumes to dresses, ties to backpacks, capes to pants and everything in between. Kyra also loves knitting, crocheting, spinning (on a wheel!), calligraphy, and drawing. Mostly self taught, Kyra has also taken classes such as costume design and pattern making. When she’s not up to her ears in crafts, Kyra loves to cook and read. During the school year, she teaches English and is the Head of the Drama Department at the Park School. She has two daughters that spend their summers at Summer at Park and love to make their own creations too!
