Mary Helen Studio is a place where imagination runs free. Not only is it where our collections for Mabel + Honey comes to life, it’s also a place for kids of all ages to explore the world of design, fashion, sewing and creativity. Our programs foster the skills and confidence that a child will carry with them for a lifetime. We invite you to become apart of our world by joining us for a sewing class, a birthday party or fashion sewing camp!

Mary Helen ~ Founder, Creator, Designer

I started Mary Helen Studio fresh out of Design School at DAAP. When I was young, I always wanted a place to sew and create. There was nothing available for kids. So I created a place for kids to foster their creativity and learn about fashion, sewing + design from designers! I love working with kids and teaching them how to express their creativity. The best is seeing how proud they are when they create something on their own. I just became a new mom last year, which is super awesome! I have the sweetest, happiest little girl! She has already started sewing with me! I love crafts and all things color, bright and bold. I am obsessed with cleaning and reorganizing everything! My husband, daughter and I are moving soon and I am pumped to get in and start remodeling and designing the new house!
