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.
