Creativity and quality has been a focus of ours from the start. We are strongly influenced by the love of vintage decor and fashion, nature, and childhood in the greater Pacific Northwest.
Owner and Proprietor, Amy D'Acquisto, lives in the heart of the small city of Seattle. Her mother made just about all of her clothes when she was little, and she still has some of the fabric from the 70's. Amy learned to sew with a little bit of guidance form her mother, and her first paid job was ironing tablecloths for Seattle's first espresso cafe. Over the years, while learning vintage sewing techniques on her beloved 1924 Singer Dressmaker, and collecting all sorts of vintage patterns and reproduction fabrics, she eventually graduated to modern machines and construction, and Acme Baby Co. was born.
Amy received her degree in Fine Arts from Seattle University, where she realized the importance of getting involved with her art community, and inspiring others. She particularly loves the blending of modern with vintage, and making the nostalgic fresh and new. Amy is constantly thinking of new things to make, and to bring that same sense of joy to others.
