Vanessa slug field

Hello there, I'm Vanessa, (or V). I began Marifly in 2014 after my husband accepted a job in our hometown of Wenatchee, Washington. En route, I realized my advertising skills wouldn't be utilized in the way I had imagined, so my husband suggested I start my own gig.

Marifly started, with the emphasis on creativity & pillows.  

A year into Marifly, we welcomed Baby Jack into our world, and our lives changed dramatically. I slowed down and focused on the art of motherhood.  Around Jack's six-month mark, I decided to add a new dimension to Marifly, and introduced a baby and children's line called Noni & V.

My mother, Noni (her name to her grandchildren), has been involved throughout the whole process - she's one of my greatest fans and sewing partners. She first offered to sew zippers into my pillows when I launched Marifly in 2014 and has become a vital member of the Noni & V line. 


Noni and I live a little less than a mile away from each other, allowing us to share and grow together in our sewing skills, in our relationship, and in business.  She believes in me, and the vision of Marifly and Noni & V. And, she has become my greatest sounding boards, voice of reason and cheerleader all along the way . Quite simply, I love her. I wish every girl could have a mother like Noni. 

Our family continues to grow. Cal, our youngest boy, joined our family last December, and once again I put the brakes on to adjust to our new normal, only to feel more excited and inspired to share, create and build with YOU. I still love textiles. That hasn't changed, but Marifly is reviving its roots and adding vlogs, patterns, inspiration and ideas to foster the brilliance and joy of a creative soul. There's room for everyone, and I can't wait to share Marifly, and its dreams with you!
