Update your handmade wardrobe with a Kimono Jacket, the perfect piece for layering in style!  Stylish, flattering and comfortable, the Kimono Jacket adds a touch of effortless charm to any outfit.

 

We have NO idea how to sew, so we've invited Regan from A Bit Stitchy in Elmira to help us out! This is the perfect sewing course for you if you are a complete beginner wishing to have a thorough introduction to using a sewing machine, learn different sewing techniques, understand basic sewing patterns and learn basic cutting skills.

You will be taken through the very basics of setting up and threading a sewing machine to make a simple kimono.  You can choose to use one of our machines (3 available for rent - additional $10) or, we prefer you bring your own if you’d like to learn to use it. Come and be part of a lovely small group with plenty of individual attention from the teacher, learn to sew, chat and make friends. The tea and biscuits are on us!

***IMPORTANT***
YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE IF YOU ARE NOT RENTING ONE OF OURS (a $10 fee to rent)

 

***YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN FABRIC***
