Almost Sold Out Show at Renegade Craft Fair






Renegade Craft Holiday Fair was very successful! Most of items are gone after the first day as you see in the picture. Lots of people stopped by my booth saw something they like, but the item was often gone by the time they came back from looking around other booths...

It was Yokomono Studio's very first holiday season, and I had no idea how much I needed to make. Obviously, I didn't make enough. I'm sorry for the people who couldn't purchase what they want. I will be more prepared next time! Thanks everyone!

Last Holiday Show - I'm Ready!




(That's happy me in the picture)

Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco is my very last holiday show. Phew! I've sewn for hours past few months, and the holiday shopping season is almost over!

Over 150 artists will be setting up shop. This is a great place for last minute holiday shopping. I'm sure I will find some goodies for my family & friends.

All the Yokomono Studio products are 10% OFF. Please come by for better selection. See you there!


Thank You, Swanky Swell!



Nina of Swanky Swell picked Yokomono Studio as one of her favorite artists at Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco last week. Yey! She designs lovely modern fabric. I think Moorish is my favorite.

Thank you, Nina!
