WICHITA — A couple of new businesses are going to open next month at Clifton Square at 3700 E. Douglas in College Hill.
Nina Winter, who makes women's accessories through her Nina Winter Design, is opening Tissu Sewing Studio by June 15.
"I really want to kind of bring back traditional arts and crafts," Winter says. "For example ... classes like how to make a prom dress or basic sewing and bringing back quilting."
She's not a strictly traditional designer, though.
"I'm trying to do, like, a modern twist on it," Winter says. "It won't be traditional quilting, for example."
She might use recycled denim, she says.
Classes will be for all ages.
Winter used to teach sewing and textile classes at CityArts. She says she has a master's degree in fashion design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
"I'm hoping to bring everything I've learned back to Wichita."
Around the same time midmonth, Erin Buhrer will be opening Erin Marie Acne Solutions at Clifton Square.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
