Samantha Myhre – Lead Dyer
Sam is the creative force driving the RavensWood story. She has always been inspired by colour and since a very young age, been playing with string. RavensWood is a dream come true for Sam, having left her corporate life in Calgary, she followed her heart to begin her life with David in their historical home in Nova Scotia in 2016. The studio moved in 2022 and is now located near the banks of the Miramichi River in Lower Newcastle, New Brunswick. Walks in the forest or on the beach are the inspiration for much of RavensWood’s creations. Outside of the studio, far from her “high heel days” of another life, you are more likely to find her in rubber boots, playing with the lambs or talking to the chickens. Sam’s famous quotes would include the words…. “What if…?”
David Myhre – Lead Production/Shipper Receiver
David is the reason RavensWood has a beginning. On a trip out west, David met Sam in 2014. A year later the two were engaged and talking about what was next in their lives. His love of Nova Scotia, where the pair originally resided, was what brought Sam to the Maritimes. In 2021, David retired from his life serving as a paramedic. This allowed the couple to dedicate more time to their hobby farm raising Icelandic/Shetland sheep and Chickens. In 2022 the wee farm was relocated to the Miramichi area in New Brunswick. David is always ready to support the studio when he isn't chasing sheep or chickens. His full time support in the studio includes machine maintenance, production manager, shipping, receiving and making sure Sam’s coffee cup is full – for the safety of all those around her. He is known to always be RavensWood’s biggest fan.
