Traditional Arts & Fashion

Heather began sewing when she was eleven years old and hasn’t stopped since.  She attended the International Arts Institute of Vancouver for fashion design. After completing her schooling she came back to the Yukon to learn traditional sewing from numerous mentors across the North. It took her several years to find a way to merge both modern and traditional styles together but she has successfully done so with her well-known “Granny Hankie” headbands!
