Creator of HB Bag Co. I was born with dirt under my nails and thread on my pajamas. My first memories of sewing are sitting on my aunt’s lap delighted that I could make something from a simple scrap of fabric. I spent my summers as a child sorting buttons in my Aunt Ruth’s sewing studio and was delighted to be paid with sewing lessons and all the fabrics. When my son was in fifth grade he had an amazing teacher who carried her supplies in a beat-up old bag. My son requested I make something special for her teacher gift so I made her an oversized tote. Since then I have been creating all the bags. I love to learn new techniques and experiment with new materials.
