About Amanda Carye
A New Englander who now calls New York home, Amanda has been quilting since middle school and sewing since forever. In 2017 she started her second company, Broadcloth Studio, a collection of bold and modern quilt patterns that are designed to be enjoyable to make. With Broadcloth Studio, Amanda aims to celebrate the craft, the community, and the heritage of quilting every day (with a fresh take and an irreverent wink). Beyond her sewing machine, Amanda is most likely to be found with her nose in a book, playing the viola, or out on the hiking trail.
