I make upscale children's coats, cloaks, pullovers and the occasional matching garment using donated, up-cycled and vintage materials. I strive to create well-made, useful heirlooms with an antique quality and vintage feel.
I am able to keep my prices low and reasonable due to the generosity of retiring seamstresses and fabric collectors who loved what they did enough to pass their tools along to Eat The Mommy. Seamstresses have a fussy tool kit, unique to each maker, and when it is time to hang up the pins and scissors, they want to see their materials in the hands of a maker who will utilize and respect them. That is where Eat The Mommy comes in.
I am open to all kinds of fabric and materials donations. If you have anything you want to pass along just drop me a message and we can work out the details. I am also open to barter or trade. So many of my awesome customers have generously donated materials to me over the years. I have also made clothing in exchange for some of these hand me downs. The possibilities are endless.
I have about 30 years of sewing experience and made my first dress at five years old. All of the women in my family sewed almost everything they wore and I caught the bug early!
I hand make everything in my home in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. I am a stay at home mom of two small children (with one more on the way) and Eat The Mommy is how I stay that way. I have been vending as Eat The Mommy since 2009 mostly in the Providence, Boston, Worcester area. I do craft, vintage and art shows as well as a two spots in some brick and mortar locations in Providence, RI.
