Mary Margaret Powers
Artist Bio:

Once upon a time…I had another life as a Costume Technician & Wardrobe Supervisor in the Broadway and Off-Broadway world in New York City. I sewed vests for the original production of Hamilton. I’ve dressed the Parkers: Mary-Louise and Sarah Jessica, changed Idina Menzel’s shoes, washed Ansel Elgort’s t-shirts, and brushed elbows with Stephen Sondheim while managing the wardrobe for a revival of his classic musical Merrily We Roll Along.And then the pandemic happened, meaning… I don’t do any of those things anymore.Returned to my roots & family in Georgia, I spent the first few months of the COVID-19 crisis sewing over 1400 cloth face masks to donate to Atlanta area hospitals and medical facilities, as well as to distribute to friends and family. Now the supply of medical face coverings has improved, but my job as a theatre artist remains shut down into 2021. I am hoping to reinvent myself during the messy middle of the coronavirus pandemic by offering services creating custom re-usable cloth face masks for weddings, parties, photoshoots and events.

Store Description:

I’m hoping to work directly with brides, grooms, mothers and fathers-to-be, and other clients that are looking to plan safe and stylish ceremonies or photo shoots in these truly bizarre times. I’m sure most people never envisioned planning under the restrictions and modifications required by COVID-19, but they might find some comfort in being able to offer guests a safer way to celebrate the day, along with a fun favor they can take home to help protect themselves and their communities. As lovely as tiny jars of jam, bubbles, or flower sachets are,  I can’t say I’ve ever gone home from a wedding or birthday party with something that helps save lives. I can work personally with your clients to customize the exact number, styles, and sizes for my 2-layer, reversible, 100% cotton masks, and of course find fabrics in colors and patterns to perfectly accent their event. No order too small- I'm happy to help you customize something for the perfect gift or to complement your favorite outfit, too!
