I’m about two weeks or so late but I wanna send this shout out to #TamishaRidge #MeeshaBooTaughtMe, I learned so much from this beautiful, young lady. She inspired millions to sew around the world.
Her life was tragically taken by an ex who shot her to death as she slept. She leaves her parents and three children behind.
We need to re-visit the issues of #DomesticViolence but that’s for another time.
I really just wanted to give my RIP, to remind us how short life is. Tamisha Ridge or Meesha Boho as she was affectionately called was our Sewing Guru/Diva. Everyday you could find tutorials on everything fashionable. She inspired us to sew with confidence and ease. She did it all; fashion hauls, thrifting, she sold fabric and had her own Clothing Fashion Lines. My favorite was the ever so popular Wett Baby, her swimwear collection and so much more. She offered advice, tips and simple tricks to make dresses, leggings, peplum, maxi, mini or whatever we requested she covered it. We enjoyed seeing that her children were involved. I remember her daughter was filming, or her Son was crafting his boots or the occasional drop by of the children during the video. We’d be introduced to family, friends and clients who came by for her sewing tutorials. She also gave us spiritual inspiration with words from the scriptures found on every tutorial.
The last thing I remember was that Tamisha was getting ready for the fashion show she was having in which she posted videos of casting, practice and sneak peaks of her clothing lines. Please go check out her work if you are on IG, YouTube or Facebook. She has taught and touched so many. She always had some great tutorials or advice for the eager beginner or novice sewer. She was always inspiring us and left us with that heartwarming smile. Many of us were blessed to be shouted out by her or chatted with her and followed her YouTube channel know how Sad I’m feeling right now. Sad that such a wonderful person has been taken so soon. I believe she’s in Gods arms. I say to my fellow sewers and fashionistas..Keep sewing, tell the world who inspired us so her family knows we care and support them in seeking justice for her unfortunate passing.
She will be missed. She would want us to keep sewing, fashion hauling and posting our work. Keep subscribing to her channel Meeshabooh. If you with me, remember her by hashtagging #Meeshataughtme.
RIP SIS Tamisha Ridge May 14, 2014
