Barb Cherniwchan - Coach House Designs
Barb Cherniwchan has been a fabric junkie since she figured out how to use her mom’s green Bernina sewing machine as a young girl. After retiring from the practice of law, Barb’s journey to fabric design began in 2000 with a tiny quilt shop over her husband’s medical practice in a converted character home in the small town of Yarrow, BC. Two larger locations and 8 years later, Barb sold her shops and went into quilt pattern design. Since then she has worked with numerous fabric designers and designed hundreds of patterns under the name Coach House Designs. Barb’s patterns are inspired by the fabric she works with and she is excited to be able to now design fabrics that inspire others to create. She and her husband live in the mountains surrounding Chilliwack BC and they are the proud parents of 4 awesome adult children and two labradoodles.
