Please join me in celebrating 3 and a half-ish years of business in the town of Friday Harbor, and the GRAND OPENING of my new shop space on Spring Street!

I want to open my doors wide to you and yours (yep your kiddos and grandma too) and invite you to please come warm my new business space and celebrate this thriving community together. It has always been my goal for Cosecha Textiles to be a business that supports you in wherever you are with your personal creative goals and needs… from DIY to full-service sewing and upholstery, I want to empower YOU to understand what goes into the entire process. My new space will allow just that: Expansion and Growth for me AND you. Not only does Cosecha Textiles offer Upholstery, Sewing Services, and Sewing Education Workshops, but my special space has and will house many free and open creative gatherings for brainstorming, networking, celebration, reflection, and community building. It is my goal to help the creative culture of San Juan County truly grow and thrive.

Raise a glass of bubbles and toast with me to the future of Cosecha Textiles as it grows deeper roots in it’s new special home. There will be raffles, door prizes, coupons, and plenty of amazing island-made goods for sale. Spend over $100 and get entered into the GRAND PRIZE raffle for a FREE upholstery project that you’ve always wanted up to $1000.00 value. This journey has been an important one for me, and it has only just begun.
