“ Ellie, you’re such an AWESOME teacher! I love how you explain each step & give us tips on WHY we are doing whatever it is. I made a Fremont Kit & I was feeling so confident with what I’d learned from your wonderful teaching, that I made a second bag. I can really DO this!!

The Maywood Totepack

Our newest bag has arrived! Two bags in one, the Maywood converts from backpack to tote with the pull of a strap. Make it yourself on a home sewing machine with “I made this!” bragging rights.


Not many stitchers carry a hammer in their sewing kit, but we’re working on changing that. At Klum House, we build bags that are as strong and resilient as the people making them. Working with classic, natural materials like waxed canvas, leather, and metal, our mission is to teach stitchers how to harness the full power of their home sewing machine and create rugged, stylish bags that are built to last.

The Lady Behind

Klum House


Hi! I’m Ellie Lum

I’m a maker and a teacher. I started Klum House because I love encouraging and inspiring people by teaching sewing tips & tricks through fun, hands-on workshops. With clear instructions and 20 years experience, I will teach you how to make wares that look like they came off the shelves of your favorite handcrafted goods shop!
