I started Holley and Sage in 2015, but the dream goes all the way back to when I was 8 years old and went to my first sewing class. Creativity has always been my thing and I sometimes joke that it’s my only skill. I’m married to my best friend in the whole world and we have a 1 year old, Lavender and two dachshunds, Annie and Sebastian.




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 boy! ⁠

“I really like sewing clothes and this is my favorite and professional job in my life” - Htu Mai⁠
