Custom sewing shop with hand-sewn gifts
Sugarcane Studios celebrates the ART OF SEWING and the excellence of custom-made clothing. We are Asheville's go-to shop for custom clothing and specialty alterations. Whether you need bridal alterations (our specialty), a one-of-a-kind dress, a copy of a favorite garment, or anything else you can dream of, we can do it! Please visit our website to link to our 5-star reviews.
Owner, Tara Nyanga, is a native Ashevillian who spent 15 years working in New York City making high-end costumes on Broadway, at the Metropolitan Opera, and on various TV shows and films. She has experience in all types of clothing, personalities, and body types. Her costume career helps her think outside the box...the more creative, the better!
We work by appointment only, but also have a retail area open 6 days/week that has some of our own hand-sewn products such as robes, bridal accessories, bow ties, embroidered gifts/jewelry, and more! And because we have been sewing for most of our lives, we believe nice tools make a sewist's process better. So, we also carry a small selection of unique, high-quality gifts for the person in your life who sews...especially if that is you!
