About US

Hi, I’m Rachel!

I’m the designer and owner behind Golden Rippy and Creative Bootcamp. I design the PDF sewing patterns and online courses for you. (I’m available for ghost drafting too, if you need it).

I’m a thirty-something, fashion lover and mother of six. When I’m not chasing my kids and dogs, you can find me at my sewing machine or dreaming up new designs. I learned how to sew on my mom’s old Singer machine before studying fashion design and production in college. Since then, I split my time between sewing for myself and kids, learning, and making costumes. I love classic silhouettes, bold colors and bows. Let’s be sewing buddies!

My fashion designs have been featured in California Apparel News, One Thimble sewing magazine, several women’s bundles and more.

And when I’m not designing, I love quoting cheesy movie lines.
