Bows a' la Mode was born in 2003 shortly after the birth of my twin boys.
After working in the corporate world for many years, I was a stay at home mom to my three children for the first time. Apparently, having three children under the age of 3 wasn't enough to keep me busy! I had been purchasing bows for my daughter from a man who had a booth at the local mall. His bows were okay, but he made them using wire and they were a bit flat. I knew I could do better. I bought some ribbon and soon mastered making a bow just exactly like his, but hand sewn instead of wired. But why stop there? I kept working and playing and eventually mastered the boutique bow, the layered bow, and many more. Then the embroidery bug hit. I purchased a small embroidery machine and haven't stopped since.
Now, 13 years later, I own 3 machines, and have added vinyl to my shop as well. I love all things monogrammed and am always adding new items. I have more ideas than I have time!
We're a family run business located just north of Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition to running Bows a' la Mode, I'm a busy homeschool mom to my three kids. I look forward to making unique handmade items for your little one!
