Mountain Mama Originals
- Retail Stores/Gift Shops
Mountain Mama Originals sews handmade clothing for woman all over the world. I came by my love for sewing and design naturally; my maternal grandmother loved to browse the fabric stores and sew for her grandchildren. My grandmother lived a distance from my family, but she would send boxes of homemade outfits for me and my siblings. The dresses had amazing detail with lace and fancy buttons. They were durable, beautiful and intricate and could be handed down to me, the third girl.
I taught myself to sew for fun at a young age by looking at the diagrams on clothing patterns. Years later when going to craft fairs I remember seeing women selling their clothing outside of tents and vans. I thought, if they can make some extra money doing that, so can I. Being able to do something I love and make money at the same time seemed like a God send to me. It wasn’t long and I had enough items to sell. I have grown to understand the importance of quality work and learning how to run a homegrown business. The changes made from my first craft show to the shows I have today have been dramatic.One thing I have never lacked is inspiration and drive!
In 2005 I began to list my originally designed clothing online and named my website Mountain Mama. In 2008 I produced my first fashion show at the local college with rave reviews. Traveling to local shows compliments my gypsy wondering spirit. In 2015 I found my place in the historical district in Soldotna. Beautiful homes that are being preserved to tell a story. I am one store that makes up many at The Market.
