Hi, my name is Shankevia Mitchell, but you can call me Shan. I started Sawdust+Fabric to explore my passion for building furniture and working with fabric to discipline myself in developing my skills and to serve others along the way. I’ve done upholstery coursework at Atlanta Technical Institute, but most of my expert experience has come from research, YouTube, trial and error. (Lots of error).

My style is eclectic with vibrant pops of color. Infusing anystly of design that feeds my creative flair. My purpose is to see the need, cultivate vision, and manifest that vision into reality. I find inspiration everywhere, and nothing makes me happier than bringing ideas to life to create spaces that are as beautiful as they are functional.
