Announcement   JypsieDesigns is a burner-owned business inspired by a love of fabric and fiber media, and a desire to live sustainably. My studio is a part of Air Light Time Space, a maker-space in Seattle. Materials are sourced from remnants, thrift stores, and swaps wherever possible. Some scraps even come from professional theatrical costume shops, where these textiles were seen on stage! Beautiful fabrics and fibers that would otherwise be thrown away are washed and rebuilt into clothing, accessories, housewares, and unique gifts. This is done not only to eliminate waste, but also to stand against human exploitation in sweatshops around the world. I love fabric, and I love to spread that love by teaching people all that this wonderful medium can do.

About

From a gypsy life to JypsieDesigns

I spent over 7 years learning couture sewing techniques, painting, dyeing, and a variety of costuming crafts in school, so whenever I've had time off from working in professional theatrical costume shops, I've been able to use those skills to do repairs, alterations, and custom clothing and costumes for my friends and co-workers. I lived the life of a theatre gypsy for 8 years, working in 7 different states, but finally chose to move to Seattle and join the vibrant arts community here. Seattle has so much to offer, and so many creative people, I chose to stay and start a business, and called it JypsieDesigns, taking inspiration from all the shows I've worked on and people I've met. Early on, I made clothing and crafts from my living room, but in 2011 I joined a community maker space called Air Light Time Space, and since then I've added machines, tables, dress forms, and a stock of supplies, all thanks to my fellow ALTSpace members, and the patronage of Seattle's many active sub-cultures. My busiest time is always the summer, making playawear for my Burner clientele, with a close second being Halloween. Still, Seattle knows how to get dressed up and party, so there is never a lack of costume opportunities. Nearly everything in my shop can be made to order in other fabrics and sizes. My stock of materials is always evolving, so feel free to message me with your requests and favorite colors. I'll send you photos of what's available.
