Meet the Maker: Jenny Lemons

Meet the MakerCara CoreyComment

We are so lucky to have the multi-talented Jennie Lennick of Jenny Lemons as one of our stockists. Not only does she make adorable block printed tops and textiles, she also teaches many of our workshops on other topics, including embroidery and macrame. 

Get to know Jennie with our Q&A below. 

Where do you draw inspiration? Or who inspires you?

I am very inspired by the natural beauty of Northern California. I am originally from Minnesota and when I first moved to California for grad school I was struck by the greenery, enormous trees, and fresh delicious produce. I love printing images of natural elements on my clothing- which is made from natural and organic materials. 

If you could eat at any food truck, what would it be? And what would you get?

I am a gluten-free person, so my dream food truck would be filled with gluten-free pizza slices! You CANNOT find a good gluten-free pizza slice anywhere. 

What do you like most about the maker community?

The maker community in the Bay Area is filled with so many nice people who are willing to help each other out with emotional support, talking shop, and promoting each other. There is a feeling of being “in it” together that I really appreciate. 

Where is your favorite place to travel?

I love traveling to warm and tropical places where I can eat good food and truly relax! I love Mexico and Central America. I also really like visiting my friends and family back in the Midwest.

What does your work space look like? 

My studio is very cute! I spend a lot of time organizing it and making it into the perfect place for me to be. 

What do you want for your next birthday?

I love taking workshops. I would love gift certificates to places like Workshop or Handcraft Studio School, or Gather! I desperately want to take the perfume-making class at Workshop. I would also like to take leather working classes or jewelry classes.
