Our Story

Our Story:

We are Cindy, Sarah and Sophia. A mother, daughter and granddaughter.

A combination of Cindy's sewing and quilting expertise, Sarah's business savvy and Sophia's cuteness, Bumbleebee & Sophie is the creative union of three generations.

It all started with crib bedding, before Sophia was even born, and quickly developed into knit sweaters and little dresses, once she arrived.

Dissatisfied with the "typical" baby bedding in the stores, Sarah asked her mother, Cindy, to create a custom crib bedding set for Sophia. The result was a beautiful, eye-catching combination of playful fabrics. From there both Cindy and Sarah were inspired to create clothing that featured similar bold and fresh fabrics. The two decided to combine their areas of expertise (Cindy and award winning quilter and Sarah a former small business owner) to create a beautiful, boutique line of little girls clothing. The result: Bumblebee & Sophie

The Name:

The "Sophie" of Bumblebee & Sophie, is the obvious part: named for Sarah's daughter Sophia. "Bumblebee" is the nickname Sarah's husband Mark, gave to her burgeoning belly when she was pregnant with Sophia. And so Bumblebee & Sophie was born...literally.
