Happy voices

I had a raggety old Pound Puppy named Cooper that needed some tender loving care. His ear had been ripped off, and quite a few seams had been pulled open, needing some stuffing and patches. Yukari was meticulous with her restoration, re-stuffing the old boy, and hand-stiching the patches, ensuring the thread matched his colouring. She even added a bow- tie to complete the project. Cooper is now proudly displayed in my living room, and everyone who comes by interacts with him and comments on Yukari’s quality work! I am so happy with the results!

I approached Yukari with an idea for something to protect my glass tables. I didn’t want a table-cloth per se, and placemats in the store were far too small. She came over to measure the tables, and I described my very basic idea. Yukari ran with it, coming up with the amazing idea to make double-sided table-toppers using upholstery fabric to the diameter of the table. They fit perfectly, and she did a great job sewing them for my round tables.

We had some fabric left over, so she also made toppers for my wardrobes, and even had enough fabric to make a protective sleeve for my journal.

She took my ideas, and made them a reality. Yukari’s stitching is impeccable, and we had a lot of fun brainstorming ideas!



After emailing Yukari regarding a request to upcycle a small hand bag into a fanny pack as part of my fly fishing gear, she was more than happy to take on the challenge. Our meeting was wonderful, she understood what was needed to create the pack I wanted telling it would be ready for pickup in a couple days. A day later I received an email with a picture. Looking at what she had designed for me was perfect! I picked it up that day with Yukari explaining a few things about her design.

Yukari was very personable and understanding of my needs, she is truly a master of her craft and will recommend her to others and trust her for other projects. Stellar service from start to finish 5/5. Thank you again YUKARI!



Yukari repaired two fabric dog crates that our puppy ripped. We thought we were going to have to throw them out, but she did such a good job that we are able to use them, and they look great!

Yukari has also repaired a dog bed, and done some clothing repairs. These were all done expertly, and efficiently. Thank You, Yukari.

Love the convertible bag backpack/mini purse duo that Yukari made. I am looking forward to using them for a long time to come. They have been great for holding everything I need since I got them and the bag is so versatile! The triangle pouches have also been great for my earphones, those are must-buys and are great for stocking stuffers!



Yukari recently did some tailoring for me. I really appreciated her attention to detail, the honest and regular communication she provided about its progress, and the speed at which she completed the work. I would strongly recommend her services, and I will certainly seek her services again!
