Meet the Maker

I'm Roya! I'm so glad you've found your way here to my shop. I've been crocheting since I was about eight years old, dreaming of living on a farm or homestead.​

I have been a fan of heritage arts of all kinds for my whole life, with a particular love of fiber arts from the start. I began selling friendship bracelets to the kids on my swim teams and girl scout troops when I was very young!

I am now a mother of three wild and wonderful kids, wife to a Park Ranger husband, we have an always changing number of dogs, fish, and chickens, and a house whose DIY projects are never ending! I have a private practice as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am the author of the book Connect with Courage, and maker and mind behind the online Royaboya Handmade Bazaars. The rest of the time I am pursuing my passions: crocheting, knitting, playing all the games, and figuring out how to get as close to that eight year old's dream life as I can!

I believe so much that supporting handmade artisans can help change the world for the better. Thank you for your support in this passion of mine!
