About Margaret Hatcher:
I first learned to sew in home economics in 7th grade. I loved the freedom of making my own clothes. In college, I studied printmaking and earned a BA from Cal State Fullerton.
After moving to Berkeley in the early eighties I "fell into" a design gig creating roller skating cacti costumes for Footloose Dance Company in San Fransisco and I was hooked. Since then, I’ve created costumes for individual dancers, small movie productions, a video game and even had a short stint making hats at the SF Opera. I designed shadow masks and costumes for ShadowLight Productions: "In Xanadu” and “Coyotes Journey” earning a Gerbode Foundation Designer Residency Grant.
I moved to Sonoma in 2001, managed the ARTS program at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art for four years, then served as Special Projects Manager at the Sonoma Community Center for 10 years where I created the Trashion Fashion Show and designed costumes for special events including Dia de Los Muertos, the Holiday Follies and the Fourth of July Parade.
