People always ask if I am "Mom". I am a mom, but the store name was inspired by my mother. My mom was a complete craftaholic with a mild case of hoarding. She would look at something that anyone else would throw away and see a way to turn it into a treasure. I caught the bug early. When a craft magazine would arrive I would scan it from cover to cover then head to Mom's sewing area in the basement to look for supplies. Many of the treasures we created have disappeared over time, but I still remember opening Mom's cantilevered sewing basket to find thread, rickrack, or a needle for sewing.
I still enjoy crafting and when people see things that I have made they say "I wish I were that creative". I believe that everyone is creative they just need to find a way to express it. At Mom's Sewing Basket we will try to provide you with all the supplies to produce your own treasures and the support and encouragement to complete them. Bring in those unfinished projects to work on in our sewing area and we will be there to cheer you on.
