About

In almost every home, the kitchen table is where life is discussed; the heart of the home where a family's story unfolds. For our house, although we are empty nesters, our table continues to grow as each child finds their way and returns to share new stories and new faces—spouses, friends and now grandchildren as well. When everyone comes home, it's always the kitchen where we all congregate.

I have been making tablecloths for our kitchen table for years, many times using scraps of fabric left over from clothes I made for my children. This wasn’t Grandma’s starched white linen—our tablecloths were quite literally as unique as our family, full of bright colors and loud patterns, with no need to worry over little spills. Years later, my daughters still love to find a scrap from a first-day-of-school dress, or my son his vacation pajamas. It is always hard to throw the old tablecloth out…

I have been making tablecloths for our kitchen table for years, many times using scraps of fabric left over from clothes I made for my children.

Years later, my daughters still love to find a scrap from a first-day-of-school dress, or my son his vacation pajamas. It is always hard to throw the old tablecloth out when a new one is made because there are so many memories associated with each one.
 
I started Cake4Breakfast so I could share with others the simple joy of a colorful tablecloth surrounded by the people you love. As I sew, I love to picture families celebrating holidays and birthdays, having lively conversations and just enjoying each other’s company. Working with all of these fabrics, brings to mind cherished memories from my own kitchen table, such as eating leftover birthday cake for breakfast with my family—which is the little tradition behind the name Cake4Breakfast.

I can also make custom tablecloths out of your memories too—just send me a message and I’d be happy to work with you! I am happiest when all of my family surrounds our table and I hope that my tablecloth can bring the same happiness to your home as well.
