Pink Berry Pie
Tell us about your business.Snow days are dreamy. February 2011 brought a blizzard to our little town. One sewing machine, two weeks of snow days and countless mugs of steaming hot chocolate (with marshmallows, of course) brought on the idea for Pink Berry Pie. I whipped up some burp cloth sets, took photos and opened up shop. Pink Berry Pie quickly grew from offering only burp cloths to specializing in custom onesies and tees for your tiny ones, bibs, dresses, dolls and more. I love creating. An afternoon at the fabric shop can only mean one thing...new products in the shop. Gingham, polka dots and chevrons are my absolute favorite patterns. I love playing with color and mixing and matching. Once I dream up a design, I pull out Mama's vintage Singer sewing machine and bring that design to life. Handmade is special and made to be cherished. I love the idea that something I made is making someone else happy.
What makes your business stand out?I strive to make Pink Berry Pie a unique and recognizable brand. A mix of new and vintage fabrics give our products a one-of-a-kind look.
