Hi! I'm Amanda,
I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Illustration and Graphic Design. Apparel design always peaked my interest and in 2011 I opened my Etsy shop, Daleigh Designs. After about a year, I had a full blown children's clothing line with text designs of children's stories.
In 2015, I shut my shop down because life got away from me and I wasn't able to put the passion and work into it that made me proud of my products. For Christmas of 2019, I was gifted a vinyl cutter from my husband and my passion was reborn!
Taking the Leap to Full Time!
In January 2020, I rebranded my shop and my entire business as Rags and Rivers and reopened my shop. During the country wide shutdown, I was able to completely focus on my business for 3 months and realized that I wanted to pursue my dream of doing this full time. March 2021, I took the leap to full time self employment! I have met so many amazing people and worked with so many amazing small businesses in the last 2 years! I can't thank my supporters enough for allowing me to live my dream!Get in Touch!
