Patterns > By Designer > Green Bee Green Bee Patterns is a collaboration between mother/daughter pair Michelle and Alexia Abegg. Their passion for sewing and textiles is evident in every aspect of their lives. Michelle began sewing as a child, making a wardrobe of Barbie clothes, and has been an avid seamstress ever since. Alexia grew up watching Michelle design everything from children's clothing to custom wedding gowns. In addition to designing patterns with her mom, Alexia is a teacher, author, and fabric designer for Ruby Star Society. Today they run Green Bee together out of their studio in an old Hosiery Factory in Nashville, TN.
