A 'reclaimer' of all things vintage.

I reclaim and refashion old clothes to create a new style....a futuristic apparel leaning toward the wastelands of Barter Town.

I use an old 1919 singer sewing machine with only one stitch and no reverse!!! I love it!

My brick and mortar shop is now three years old.

Local write up.....
"Tucked away in a historic part of town in the heart of Limestone County in North Alabama, Donna Brown aka Prairie Child stitches and pins and snips away at vintage and upcycled fabrics creating one of a kind clothing items. She's been featured in Catfish Alley, Surreal and Altered Couture Magazine's and has seen her custom work sent to customers all over the world. She's a phenomenal artist and creative, with a passion for the natural world and preserving much of it. Her work and her shop are often described as Athens, Alabama's "best kept secret!" but it is a secret worth sharing. When you shop Prairie Child Design, you're shopping for unique, one of a kind items that speak of only you and your individuality. Each piece is carefully and passionately born into existence and displays Prairie Child's incredible skill with her antique Singer sewing machine that she learned to sew on and still sews on to this day. Donna Brown is an original in a world of mass produced madness, and each piece reflects that spirit and life." ~by Tamara Graves
