About

The Old Coat Studios is the outlet for my mom's creative energy!

At 82, as my mom continued to find life giving energy from creating things, we decided to open a shop to share her love of creating from recycled materials.

    My 86 year old mom is a tiny little ball of high energy! She wakes up every morning eager to create and sew and goes to bed with visions of what she will make the next day!

    We live far apart but Etsy is our connection to working together across the distance!
