Remember the babies

Sometimes when I look into the sweet eyes of a baby I get an overwhelming sensation that tells me this baby knows more than any one of us can imagine. Is it possible that babies are born with all the knowledge humans can hold? And rather than learning throughout life, we some how unlearn and then build it up age with age...like a reverse bell curve?
Well understand me or not, this notion is the inspiration behind my children's clothing line, Babooshka (Russian for gram'ma). Please peak at my website...I am dusting off the cobwebs of this little gem of a project and will have more items to add when the Portland Garment Factory Wearable Showroom opens!
xoxox child/gramma at heart, Britt

Stark Street, meet Portland Garment Factory

Not too shabby, eh? We are excited to bring the factory to the people with clothing hot off the assembly line! So much to do! We look forward to the opening reception and anniversary party later this fall. We will commence the big move on July 28th! XOXO, PGF

It's all in a days work

You can look at life in many ways... lemons can be lemon aid... or, just sour citrus. I wonder how my kids will look at life after being raised by a mother who totes them to a stuffy sewing shop and makes them nap in a metal crate? The machine was skipping stitches so I had to dash in from a near by park! Mama's gotta bring home the bacon-kid on the breast and all!

Lovely Time for a Move!

After much anticipation and debating over what space would be best....a lease has been signed and will be moving at the beginning of August! Our new home will be across from the Bipartisan Cafe and Country Cat on outer SE Stark! With the move comes the capacity to bring in more machines, thus shortening our turn around time as well as bringing more variety to the types of fabrics we are able to work with. Cranking out beautiful silk dresses and impeccable patterns is what we do best, so we are of course very excited! The abundant square footage is also allowing us to bring a storefront/showroom into the mix! We like tot think of it as a werable gallery-as cheesy as that may sound.
Keep in touch for more info on what we will be carrying and for a list of events (runway shows, trunk events, designer launch parties-you get the idea!
