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 to share the good feelings.  

Rest easy, with Honey Girl by your side.

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.

P.S.S. from now on: "RESPECT QUILT" PROJECT NEEDS USED LEVIS!  I will pay $10 a pair plus postage for any Levi's jeans you may have, no matter how battered up they are. As long as the pockets (and cute little labels) are salvageable, pls send!  contact:

[Thanks go to Diego and Lin in California, Shellie in Seattle, Monica in Virginia, and Katelyn in Oklahoma, for their contributions! All the others were purchased at Goodwill.]
