Hello there, lovely souls! I'm the face behind Holley and Sage, and I'm thrilled to share a little glimpse into my world with you.
From Dream to Reality: The journey of Holley and Sage began in 2015, but truth be told, the dream took root way back when I was just 8 years old, attending my very first sewing class. From that moment, creativity became my compass, guiding me through life's adventures.
Creative at Heart: You know, I've often said that creativity is my secret superpower – and sometimes, I even joke that it might be my only skill! Whether it's designing, crafting, or dreaming up new ideas, the world of creativity is where I come alive.
Life's Treasures: Outside the realm of fabric and stitches, I have my life's most precious treasures. I'm married to my best friend, my partner-in-crime, my confidant – the one who's there through thick and thin. Our little world is brightened by the presence of our 3-year-old whirlwind, Lavender, whose laughter and curiosity remind me of the magic in everyday moments. And let's not forget our dachshund, the one and only Sebastian, who's mastered the art of finding the coziest spots in the house.
So, welcome to Holley and Sage, a place where dreams sewn at 8 years old are now woven into reality. Here, creativity reigns supreme, family is everything, and the journey is as meaningful as the destination.
Thank you for being part of this beautiful adventure.
Khawl Ciin and her family came to the United States from Myanmar in 2010. Like all our seamstresses at H+S, she began her career at Project 658 in Charlotte, NC where she learned to sew through their program, Make Welcome. Khawl was one of the first seamstresses Jennifer hired from Make Welcome in 2017. In 2019 Khawl was promoted to Head Seamstress. Khawl brings such a wonderful energy to the team and listening to her sing the most beautiful Burmese songs while she sews is always a treat.
“I truly love my job as it gives me a lot of flexibility with my schedule, and allows me to be there for my kids when they need me.” - Khawl
Htu Mai was another one of Holley + Sage’s first seamstresses joining the team in 2017. She is insanely talented and has an eye for detail. She has a love for sewing and spends her days working from home while watching her baby boys!
