Sewing by Yukari Meldrum


Because of of the COVID situation and regulations, if an in-person services are required (such as measuring and fitting), this has to be done on an appointment basis one person at a time with all other measures in place (e.g., masks that cover nose, mouth, and chin, as well as handwashing/sanitizing). However, if you can wait until things calm down to have an in-person service, that will be greatly appreciated. All other services will be completed by mail, curb side pickup, or curb side drop off.


Handmade items on Etsy


Handmade items are listed on Y's creation, my Etsy shop page.

I had such a great time making all the items like pouches, bags, pen cases, cosmetic cases... I make them with fabrics I find pretty from different fabric stores. Believing that recycling and upcycling is important, I also use rescued fabrics like Japanese kimono and upholstery remnants. 

If you live in Edmonton and can pick up the item(s), I provide a discount. Please contact me

Custom sewing

If you have been dreaming of a specific item but cannot find it in a store, I may be able to help.


I can sew a garment if you have a sewing pattern, fabric, and notions (like zippers, buttons, etc.). Please read more information about custom sewing for garments


Or, I can also make anything you see on Y's creation (my Etsy shop) using a different fabric such as your favourite fabric. I can be creative with other non-garment items, meaning that I can probably make a sewing pattern for your item. 


If you need help with what you need to order your item, please feel free to contact me


I also sew blackout curtains for optics labs for Grayflare Inc. Please check them out as well.  



I can help you if you have a button that you need me to sew it back on, if you need a patch on the knee area of your favourite pair of pants, or if you need to have a zipper replaced on the jacket you love. I can also mend worn areas such as those on socks. 


Fees will depend on the hours required to finish the task.


  • Sewing and mending starts at $30/hour, and it may change according to the technicality and difficulty of the project.

  • ​Shopping for notions and/or fabric at a physical store: $25/store --> At this time, there is no shopping services; only projects whose materials are provided to me will be accepted. Thank you for understanding this temporary arrangement until the COVID situation resolves. 

  • ​Do you want to exchange your hour(s) to my hour(s)? I'm open to the hour exchange. Please contact me


  • Minimum charge: one hour

  • Accepted method of payment: cash, credit card (on PayPal or Square), PayPal, or money order
