I'm Jenn George Burt (otherwise known as Jenn Gee here on Etsy). In 1995 I touched a sewing machine for the first time and I have been hooked ever since. I have dabbled in lots of crafts, but everything seems to come back to me sitting in front of a machine with the pedal to the floor.

My first love is quilting, but since I'm an instant gratification kind of girl I've been moving more and more into the world of smaller pieces. Handbags and my signature Coffee Corsets™ have become a real obsession for me! I also enjoy creating my own fabric with inks/dyes/paints, carving my own stamps (for the same purpose), painting and embossing metal hardware,…

I'm Jenn George Burt (otherwise known as Jenn Gee here on Etsy). In 1995 I touched a sewing machine for the first time and I have been hooked ever since. I have dabbled in lots of crafts, but everything seems to come back to me sitting in front of a machine with the pedal to the floor.

My first love is quilting, but since I'm an instant gratification kind of girl I've been moving more and more into the world of smaller pieces. Handbags and my signature Coffee Corsets™ have become a real obsession for me! I also enjoy creating my own fabric with inks/dyes/paints, carving my own stamps (for the same purpose), painting and embossing metal hardware, machine needle felting, cross stitching, and hand embroidery.

The idea for the Coffee Corsets™ (sold in my other shop http://jenngee.etsy.com ) came to me quite by accident! I'd made a few coffee cuffs, but I was unhappy with the "lump" that was formed at the seam. One day the thought of lacing them up popped into my head and I created one for myself. So many people asked me about my Coffee Corset™ that I decided to go online and sell them here at Etsy ... and the rest is history!

Now I've opened this new shop to hold all those non-Coffee-Corset things that I also love to create. My other shop is very specialized, so this shop will be for goodies that might get lost in a sea of Coffee Corsets. I hope you enjoy the variety!
