okan arts shop & classroom
The largest inventory of yukata cottons in North America
Please contact patricia for an appointment to visit the shop.
Welcome to Okan Arts Shop overflowing with vintage Japanese yukata cottons. The fabrics, 20- to 60-years old, are hand-dyed and full of remarkable patterns. The weight of the cotton is excellent for quilting. Visit our online shop to see what’s available today.
Each bolt is approximately 14″ wide and 12 meters long. Okan Arts sells the fabric in full-yard lengths. When you visit, be sure to schedule enough time to look through the hundreds of unique patterns. A cup of green tea is always ready to make your stay more pleasant.
Available at Okan Arts Shop are Prescensia No. 8 perle cotton threads from Spain. Patricia Belyea uses these high luster, colorfast threads in her hand-stitched quilts.
From fall to spring, a selection of quilting workshops are presented at the Okan Arts classroom with its five sewing stations. Be sure to check out the schedule at Weekend Workshops.
