Proprietress

Seamstress, pattern cutter, designer, photographer, customer service, shipping, office work, social media, advertising

Laura has been making handmade clothes from up-cycled materials for over 15 years. After witnessing the excess fabric thrown away in the dumpsters of clothing factories in New York City, she vowed to never use new fabrics again. She has a degree in Animal Science and Fashion Design, has lived in 7 states before moving to Montana, and has traveled throughout the US, as well as Europe, Ghana, Jamaica, and Mexico. Mrs. Fisher is passionate about growing food, horses, her family, friends, and her connection to Earth and the Divine. She loves supporting other makers and entrepreneurs. A true testament of tenacity, she has owned a re-sale and local designer clothing store, co-founded and produced Eugene Fashion Week, started a clothing manufacturing company, and finally dedicated herself full time to RevivALL in 2015. Remember, there’s strength in your femininity!

Cindy Klebenow

Cindy Klebenow

Seamstress

and Sews for RevivALL- Lacey Jean Skirts and Pinafores

When Cindy was around 10 years old, she started making clothes for her Barbie and furnished her toy box doll house with furniture she built and sewed. This evolved into her making most of her own clothes in high school. Her Mother was a seamstress in Germany, and after World War 2, apprenticed with a couturier, so she has been around garment design all her life. Cindy grew up in Whitefish, Montana, and now lives in Bozeman, where she has her own alterations and repair business, Sewing by Cid. She’s always dreamt of having a farmhouse and land outside of town for her 2 horses, J.D. and Smokey. She and Smokey love to move cows and help with brandings on the weekends. (side note-she has a bumper sticker on her horse trailer that says “Good cowgirls keep their calves together” laughing) She also has a sweet, loyal doggie, Max, who goes everywhere with her.

Order Fulfillment

Sara joined our team this year in the customer service and fulfillment department. Previously a shipping manager for a large cloth diaper company, she finds great joy in taking special care of each order. Picking out products, neatly wrapping them, and adding personal touches are just a few ways Sara expresses her love for customer service. She is inspired by those who love their craft, work with their hands, and are driven by creativity and a zest for life. When she’s not working, Sarea enjoys time with her husband and two boys, swimming, skiing, climbing, reading, and learning new things. They have an Alaskan Malamute named Tulok, which means “guardian of the stars,” and her guiding personal belief is,”In everything you do, do it with all your heart.”

Monica & Addy

Monica & Addy

Head Seamstresses- Oregon

Sews for RevivALL- Short Overalls, Rosemary Dresses, Holly Hobbie Dresses in Midnight Tapestry

Addy and Monica live in Springfield, Oregon, and sew out of a home studio. They started sewing bloomers for RevivALL  about 12 years ago and also sew for a couple other clothing brands in Eugene. They met in Guatemala City, sewing at a factory making mens suits. Monica started working as a seamstress at 9 and Addy was 13! They both have over 30 years of experience. The 3 most important things to them are family, good health, and work because “if you are healthy, you can work”. When they aren’t working, they enjoy making meals that take a long time like chile rellenos and tamales! Though Addy and Monica love to sew, they never make clothes for themselves. They’d rather just go buy something because they enjoy shopping. A goal of Addy’s is to buy a house so she could have more room to sew. One of Monica’s is to travel to Italy (last year, she visited South Korea!)

Alexandra Smith

Alexandra Smith

Virtual Assistant

Alexandra, originally from Springfield, Virginia, met Laura when modeling for Revivall in early 2020. Since the photoshoot, she was drawn to the vintage-inspired charm of the brand and appreciated Laura’s core value of conscious consumerism. Her passion for helping others is the cornerstone of how she provides services to her clients. She has since been using her skills in finding the best systems and processes to meet Revivall’s behind-the-scenes needs. Being a creative herself – whether it be through vintage fashion, crafting, or trying new recipes – Alexandra is inspired by people who put their own spin on life, shamelessly doing “their thing.” Her mantra is “Get old or die trying,” meaning live life to the fullest. She explains, “Don’t be held back by where you think you should be in life, just do your best and enjoy the ride.”

Veronica (Roni) Petrillo

Veronica (Roni) Petrillo

Seamstress

Originally from Westminster, Colorado, Roni came to us after sewing for another local company. She is a true creative soul with a background in art and environmentalism, and experience in many textile-art forms, including dyeing wool and felt for coasters and woolen insoles. Roni is particularly interested in the ways art intersects with functionality, believing that use and wear can only make a piece more beautiful. She goes to the outdoors to find peace and inspiration, whether she is snowboard instructing at Bridger, skiing, hiking, backpacking, or paragliding. Looking to the matriarchs of her family is one way Roni connects to the strength in her femininity, something she resisted growing up. She strives to elevate what may be seen as lesser, feminine art forms such as textile arts, to illuminate beauty not only in the pieces she creates, but in women and their strength as a whole.

Cora Nelson

Cora Nelson

Seamstress

Sews for RevivALL- Aprons, Dresses, Bloomers, Blouses

Cora’s love for sewing began in 7th grade in a home economics class where she sewed a dress out of some funky 60’s fabric. Her passion for working with textiles grew as she would piece together doll clothing and more in the back of her parents’ shop on a rented sewing machine. This all took place in her hometown in Nova Scotia, a beloved territory in which she resides every year from May to October. Next to textiles, hiking is one of her greatest joys, trekking through any kind of weather Montana has to offer, or navigating a coast to coast hike across the UK. In 2019, she completed this trek, taking with her the prototype of Revivall’s new Dorothy Catherine dress. While her two daughters and granddaughter mean the world to her, Cora values alone time to reflect on life. Her current resolve is to learn to sit still more often in order to enjoy the stack of books she wants to read. This year, Cora and her husband will have been married 40 years and she wishes she still had that dress from 7th grade.

Leslie Padgett

Leslie Padgett

Wordsmith-Copywriter & Content Editor

Leslie is in an ongoing affair with words. Some encouragement from teachers in her childhood led her to immerse herself in books and writing ever since. Sure, she got sidetracked in college and earned a degree in Biology. But that’s tangential to the point. Writing is her love language, be it blogging, writing articles for local and national magazines, or simply penning birthday cards to her two teenagers. For fun, she loves watching movies (just another venue for hearing a well-crafted story), reading books on grammar, challenging herself in the kitchen with a new recipe, and vintage shopping. Her home is full of mid-century finds, and a love for textiles is well represented in her rotation of couch pillows. She has two entitled Aussie-heelers who love the pillows as much as she does. Lastly, it’s always tea, not coffee, getting cold in the mug she’s left in some room she is no longer in.

Photography

Mallory is a talented, 8-year Bozeman local who grew up in the Atlanta suburbs but has no trace of a southern accent. Laura has worked with her since 2017, and brought her on as primary photographer in 2021. While studying her craft in college, Mallory knew she was born for this work. She says, “As a natural introvert, photography has given me the gift of deep connection with fewer words.” Her work in photography provides endless inspiration as she gets to know people, especially small business owners. She believes that in life, no one can do it alone, and that the greatest gift of being human is the opportunity to help each other along the journey, documentation included. When she’s not shooting the latest Revivall designs, she is enjoying the outdoors and snuggling with her little rez dog named Ellie.
