About the experience

Have you ever wanted to learn how to sew? Esther will teach you how to cut and mend fabric on 2 different types of sewing machines to make your own custom-made kimono. Bring your own style of fabric (between 1 meter and 1.5 meters) from home or purchased at a local store in town (for about $6). One of the machines is like a child to Esther- it is her mother's sewing machine. Esther says that while all men growing up always had a machete, Esther's Mom always had her sewing machine.

What's provided

Sewing machines and tools. Light snack and coffee.

What your should bring

1 meter or 1.5 meters of fabric (local price $6), which can be purchased locally.

About Esther

Esther believes that she can manifest her dreams and she is determined to do so. She writes her intentions down each year and at the end of the year she notices that she has crossed many off the list. She aspires for her little shop to grow to be able to sustain her family. She likes working in her shop- not just for business but for the opportunity to meet and speak to many people. If she starts to make a lot of money, she would like to help one person or family that really needs support. She is happy now as she is. She is not a millionaire; she does not waste anything. She saves her money so that she can travel with her three daughters. Esther's ultimate dream is that before she dies she will see her daughters with their own professions, married, and most importantly, happy.
