My name is Martha and I am the creator behind The Golden Polka Dot. I grew up sewing, designing, and creating. I would draw up an image and my mother would sew it for me. I have so many fond memories linked to sewing during my childhood. After having my own my passion for sewing and creating blossomed. I decided to open my own shop so I could share my talents, and also provide handmade accessories at a reasonable price. I've personally made most of my patterns and love hand-making baby accessories!

I was born and raised in Canada, met my sweetheart on a blind date in Idaho when I was only 17 years old. After 14 months of dating, we got married and moved all over the United States for years before settling in Utah and having our little girl. Our evenings are spent playing lots of tag and peek-a-boo until our little bug goes to bed. Then we work in our shop!

All the money we make here goes towards medical bills for fertility treatments, sadly none are covered by our insurance. You can read more about out fertility story here
