Hi there!  Welcome!

I'm Julia, the founder, designer, publisher, and chief seamstress behind HGBG.

I was once a professor of French literature--a very serious academic, learned author of tomes read by the few. A reviewer called one of my books un chef d’œuvre and compared it to un ouvrage de femme like lace. Little did he know that I was always a textile, tactile artist at heart, ever since I started sewing at age 15.

Now living in my hometown Seattle again, my artistic spirit has been rejuvenated and I've created this business--and related literary activities in the city--to share the good feelings.  (See local events under "Sustainability.")  

Rest easy, with Honey Girl and me by your side. We won't let you down.

P.S.S. Novembre 2019 : Nous sommes ravies d’annoncer que Florence Barbini (Paris) servira désormais de Directrice de vente pour Honey Girl Books and Gifts Europe.
