Teaches at M Avery Designs

Megan is the founder and owner of M Avery Designs llc.  She is the Author of the book “Bag Bazaar, 25 Stylish Bags to Make in an afternoon” published by Potter Craft, a division of Random House.

Her work has been featured in Blueprint, Modern Bride, InStyle and NBC’s, The Today Show & more.

With very little sewing and design experience, Megan started making bags in 1998 because she didn’t have the money to drop hundreds of dollars, or more, on designer bags. So often, she would see bags she loved and find herself saying “I could make that so easily!”

After designing, creating and selling my line of handmade handbags and totes for a few years, she was overwhelmed by the interest so many people had in learning how to make bags for themselves. That’s when she opened the M Avery Design Studio and started teaching “Make your Own Handbag” Workshops o guests who have little or no sewing experience. Today, Megan teaches beginner & intermediate level sewing workshops & classes, to adults & children in her studio/boutique in Hoboken NJ.
