For the month leading up to Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating the incredible journey of everything moms do! That’s why we asked our own employees to share how their mothers’ crafts have had a special impact on them, and the relationships they now share.
To kick things off, we’re highlighting Carrie, our Senior Marketing Manager, and her mom, Claire. Turns out Claire’s dedication to hand-sewn outfits for all her kids in now one of Carrie’s most cherished memories.
In Carrie’s own words:
As an adult, I can honestly say this is one of my favorite photos. These are Halloween costumes that my Mom made for my brother (dwarf), sister (evil queen) and me (snow white). I love it because it’s a reminder of everything my mom did for me — for us — when we were little. She always insisted on always making our holiday attire. Whether it was Christmas, Easter or Halloween, you can guarantee we were all in hand-sewn, matching outfits.
Connected through craft
My mom taught me, through her love of sewing, how truly important it is to go the extra mile when it comes to the people you love. Despite being a working mom of three, she always found the time to add her personal touch to the milestone moments of all her kids’ lives. From hand-sewn outfits to homemade birthday treats, nothing was too big or too small. My mom never cut a corner, and that’s something I’ll never forget, and always appreciate.
No One Makes It Like a Mother
Nothing would be as sweet if it weren’t for moms. We’re celebrating the women in our lives and the magic they make all month long. Click the photo below for more heartwarming stories.
