Announcement   Greetings!

My name is Nobuko Yoshihara, a seamstress working from a home studio "Hyacintha" in Arlington Massachusetts. I am the mother of three children. My husband and I chose to settle in picturesque New England and have lived there since 2000. 



I do three kinds of works, about which I will explain in details below:
1. Custom made products
2. Alterations
3. "Mottainai" (recycling) crafts


Custom made products
I use fabric materials to make original products based on my customer's request, such as: dresses for women and girls, home decorations, toys for babies and children, clothes for pets, and 18-inch doll's outfits, etc. If you are interested, please feel free to ask me. I will give you a free estimate.

Alterations
If your clothes don't fit any more, or if they became out of date, I'd be happy to alter them.
 You can find the price list for alterations here: 
http://hyacinthalteration.blogspot.com
I also do a special type of alteration called "universal design" alteration. That is to alter clothing for people who have a physical disability. I started to think about the universal design alteration when I saw my 9 year-old daughter putting on different styles of clothes by combining them in her own unique ways. She loves to dress up, and we all do. But what if someone has a physical difficulty to put on his or her favorite clothes? Is there a way to make it easy for that person? A solution was the "universal design" alteration.
 By making a hole on the clothes, or opening from the front, not in the back, a physically challenged person can wear the clothes that would otherwise be too difficult to put on. 
If you have such needs, please talk to me. I will give you a free estimate. (Please note, I will charge a packing fee for hospitals or assist homes).

"Mottainai" crafts
One of my favorite Japanese words is "Mottainai", which means do not waste anything. It also means to be thankful for everything surrounding us. Being a seamstress, I come across with many types of fabric in many different sizes and shapes. They are piled up in my basement - it is like a heaven for me! I use these fabrics to create crafts with a spirit of "Mottainai".
What you see on the table today are the products made by recycling fabrics. I hope you like them.
