Liana Allday is the General Manager at Creativebug. Before coming to Creativebug, she worked as a senior editor at STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books in New York City. During her tenure at STC, she acquired and edited dozens of bestselling titles, such as Knit to Flatter by Amy Herzog, Lena Corwin’s Printing by Hand and Made By Hand, Art Doodle Love by Dawn DeVries Sokol, Wendy Bernard’s Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary and Custom Knits series, The Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers by Livia Cetti, The Bust DIY Guide to Life by Debbie Stoller, Simon Leach’s Pottery Handbook, and The Beekeeper’s Bible. Liana has an editor’s mind and a maker’s heart. She is an avid sewer, knitter, watercolor painter, and writer, and she doesn’t shy away from anything that involves numbered steps. She is a big fan of zigzag stitch, polka dots, and cowboy boots and loves being surrounded by creativity. She feels grateful to have chosen a career where she feels inspired every single day. She lives in Oakland with her husband, Robb, their son, Caleb and their dog, Camper.
