At home with Amanda

Amanda Campbell, Vera Bradley Design Associate on our Product Development team, is known around the office for her energy and enthusiasm. You know her work from our special collections, such as Vera Vera or the recently-launched Middleton collection, but what you may not know is that her creative skills go beyond her day job. She bakes, she sews, she crafts, she reupholsters … she even started White Owl Studio, where she teaches crafting and sewing classes out of her home.

Needless to say, when she offered to have us over, we jumped at the chance. Who wouldn’t want to see the home of the girl that can d.i.y. just about anything?
