About Lisa

Lisa Hawkes, Owner of Pink Hollybush Designs

Hi, I am Lisa and I am so glad that you are interested in learning how to sew! I have been sewing since my Great Aunt taught me as a young girl. Smocking is my passion, but from the beginning, smocking has always been incorporated into garments; so smocking and sewing go hand in hand. I have my Artisan level certification in smocking from the Smocking Arts Guild of America and served as their national President from 2014-2016. I started Pink Hollybush Designs to share my love of smocking and sewing, so grab a cup of tea, come join me in my sewing studio, and Let's Make Your Daughter a Dress!
