Michele Merin, publisher of the NeedleTravel travel guidebook, website, and app, is an award-winning quilter in her own right who's work can be found on Etsy under Quilts by Michele Merin. Michele has an impressive inventory of spectacular pre-made quilts. She will also make custom quilts to your specifications. Be sure to ask her about a custom Tee-Shirt quilt. They are a favorite of her customers.


Michele studied fashion merchandising in New York City, first at LIM, then at Fashion Institute of Technology. After graduation, her work designing women's scarves developed into a sales manager position in Calvin Klein's couture division. Michele left to raise her children, but soon discovered Needlepoint, Knitting and later Quilting as ways to express her artistic talent. During this time, she loved visiting needlearts shops when she traveled, but discovered it was difficult to find these shops. So, she decided to begin publishing the NeedleTravel travel guide to needlearts shops. Later, she added a free website and app, all to help needleartists find the shops they love when they travel.


At the same time she was doing this, Michele was developing a reputation as a masterful quilter, winning awards for her work, and customers who wanted to purchase her quilts. Today, she is actively involved in making and selling quilts, in addition to running her publishing business. She is also the Northeast Ohio Director of Quilts for Kids and a founding member of the guild, Quilters with Heart.
