Julie Seitel of Bozeman Batiks

“While my business Seitel Lighting is on coronavirus hiatus, I’m channeling my energies into this new cause.  I do all the fabric shopping, cutting, and kit-prepping for my stitchers; sew custom orders; photograph the masks; run the Etsy store; and do outreach to the community.”

“I am a mom of four adult children, grandma of two, and have been married 40 years to my wonderful and supportive husband Terry. I help on our ranch and also am a model and actress.  I have been sewing since I was 13 years old and took home the purple sweepstakes ribbon from the winter fair for an outfit I made.”

“When my boyfriend decided to attend Montana State University after serving in the Army, I was up for the adventure. We love exploring Montana, hiking, kayaking and camping with our dog. I’ve made wedding veils for years, and with the pandemic affecting that industry, am so grateful to be a stitcher for Bozeman Batiks!”

Bozeman Batiks stitcher Paige Elliot


“I am a sewing enthusiast who particularly enjoys making garments. I sew most of my own clothes out of vintage and repurposed materials. Since the coronavirus pandemic began, however, I’ve switched my focus to making masks for family, friends, and now Bozeman Batiks. I am also a coach for the US Paralympic Nordic ski team, long distance runner, animal lover, avid bookworm, and fan of bright, colorful things, especially sunflowers.”
