Hi, I'm Jenna. I LOVE collecting vintage toy sewing machines, am a huge podcast nerd, and crave color and pattern. We do weekends in our pajamas, and make sugar cookies for every holiday. I will read a textbook as enjoyably and eagerly as a novel. Sewing runs through me as deeply as breath and my soul can't help but be pulled to create. Thank you for being a part of this crazy, fun, and often unexpected life that God carved out for me!

 Elizabeth | Studio Seamstress
Hello, my name is Elizabeth. Here at Bumbelou, I wrangle and cut fabric, and sew fine seams. I began sewing as a young teen out of necessity when needing 1800s costumes to wear at a local living history museum I worked at. Since that time, I have jumped from sewing historical clothing to crafts to quilts to modern day clothes. When I am not sewing, you can find me collecting books and magazines about sewing, hoarding sewing patterns, and planning my next “make” from my fabric stash. I love vintage influenced dressmaking patterns, fabric that is agreeable to sew with, and the hum of a beloved sewing machine. Not a day goes by that I am not dreaming about the possibilities of fabric and thread.
