Rebecca is a Master Seamstress from Bowmanville Ontario. She has been practicing her craft for over 24 years, and her passion is helping people create wearable items they love.
Rebecca has been an entrepreneur since the age of 16, as a recipient of the BACD"s summer company program, she started teaching kids how to sew out of her parents home. From there she went on to Durham College to pursue an Advanced Diploma in Advertising, graduating with honours. Her experience in the marketing world was what drove her to be her own boss, and build the empire currently known as the Rebecca Munn Design Studio.
She has created and licensed her curriculum, selling to businesses all over Canada. Her method of teaching is on trend, fun and engaging, all while providing students with a new skill they can create incredible things with. She has even helped launch over 40 businesses in the Durham Region - that have started within her studio's walls.
The #therebecca hoodie was a late night design that she came up with. She wanted an all purpose hoodie, perfect for Canadian fall and winter days, as well as one that can be worn while telling stories around a campfire.
That's when the phenomenon happened. To date over 2000 #therebecca hoodies have been sold across Canada and the USA. In 2020 our new retail partners will push this number into the tens of thousands, and you will be able to spot her sweaters from a mile away.
Her vision for the business has changed drastically over the year, and as 2020 starts she looks forward to providing more FREE content online and in her sewing community.
