Style and Quality

I enjoy exploring new design ideas and gathering inspiration for my clients, researching new techniques and materials to craft the absolute finest quality items. The studio includes an industrial sewing machine, embroidery machines, programmable vinyl cutter, rivet press, and countless other tools to help deliver high-quality bags and wallets built to last a lifetime.

How It Started

Hi! I am Michaelanne, the owner/creator at Mulberry Hill Design. Sewing is truly in my DNA - my great-grandparents had a tailor shop in New Jersey; family lore says Thomas Edison was a client!

Santa brought my first sewing machine when I was 7, and my dolls were all outfitted in some questionable fashions as I learned. By middle school, I was cutting up my clothes, up-cycling before it was a thing. We moved a lot so there have been plenty of curtains and pillow covers and bedding sets over the years. Making baby stuff is fun - everything is cuter in miniature! I’ve even made a couple of quilts. All sewing is magical and making things feeds my soul, but nothing sparked my passion like bagmaking.

The inspiration behind the business name comes from my sister's last earthly address on Mulberry Hill Road. Although she left us too soon, her heart and spirit endure in those whose lives she touched. Our company name is our way of honoring her boundless love, support, and influence.

Handmade

I do it all - selecting materials and hardware (primarily from other small businesses), cutting each piece, assembling the final product, then carefully packing and shipping each creation to its new owner. 

Collaborating with clients to deliver the "Wow" factor is what I love to do.
