Making Dreams a Reality
Creative Chics was “born” when my Mom, Freda Mayer, and I, Debbie Pearson, dusted off our sewing machines after a 30 year hiatus. Mom taught me how to sew when I was in high school and as a result I made many of my own clothes. Then life got rather busy for us and our sewing machines took up residence in the back of our closets.
Jump forward 30 years when both of us officially retired from our “paying jobs” and started sewing again, enjoying a past time we had long set aside but never forgotten. It quickly became obvious we both had an insatiable appetite for collecting beautiful fabrics and wasn’t long before we decided the only way to support our hobby was to turn it into a business.
We were having so much fun but struggling to keep up with demand and in less than a year we invited the three other Creative Chics to join us. There is Carol Shea, my Aunt and Mom’s youngest sister, Yuriko Kettler, my gorgeous and talented daughter-in-law, and my closest girlfriend in life, Debbie Mitchell.
The five of us all work out of our individual home studios and meet every other week for “show and tell” of our newest creations, photo shoots of the latest aprons, a shared lunch where we dish about family and life, and sometimes we even make time for an afternoon matinee.
