"We have one goal: To revive the art of sewing. We've been doing that since 2009 with our beautiful pattern booklets. Every pattern you get from Colette walks you through each step to construct the garment you've been dreaming of."
Designer and founder Sarai Mitnick dreamed of sewing patterns that she would want to make over and over, so she turned that dream into Colette Patterns. She loves unusual and subtle touches in clothing, learning old-fashioned techniques, and experimenting with fabric. Her favorite thing about sewing is that, like all true crafts, it involves continuous learning and discovery.
We love to sew and have a selection of beautiful and unique handmade goods such as purses, tote bags, change purses, dolls, teddy bears and beanies. We don't have room to have everything on display in our quaint little shop but please ask if you are looking to purchase our quality handmade goodies and we can show you what we have available. You can also check out our handmade goods at curated artisan markets in Sudbury such as Maker's North's handmade markets or Northern Lights Festival Boreal.
We carry a great selection of sewing notions including Gutterman thread, Kai scissors, DMC floss, Heat N Bond, Maxi-Lock serger thread and Schmetz needles. You will find a variety of interfacing including Annie's Soft and Stable, zippers, bias tape, piping, serger thread, pins, snaps, rivets, purse findings, grommets, rotary cutters, cutting mats, embroidery supplies, velcro, buttons, elastic, twill tape and more.
We love our pattern selection and we're pretty sure you will too! We carry lots of great indie patterns, including several Canadian ones.
