Quiet Company Open House

This past Tuesday, I held an open house at the Cut and Sewn shop, accompanied by a live acoustic show by a family favorite band, Quiet Company, all the way from Austin, Texas. We spent all weekend turning the shop into a presentable space; painting the walls, reorganizing the furniture, and decorating the place. While it wasn’t our “grand opening”, it was so exciting to see so many of our friends and fans of Quiet Company come out to preview the space and enjoy the band. Thanks again to everyone who joined us, and we hope that you’ll come back for the official grand opening in the (hopefully) near future. You can follow Quiet Company here, or listen to their latest album.

Skube = Skirt + Tube

What is a skube? It’s a skirt plus a tube! Skube.me, owned and designed by Monica Kohler, makes fun, easy to wear tube skirts. The idea behind the skube is versatility; fashion that transitions easily from workout to work day. The skube fits right in poolside just as well as a business casual setting.

Over the past few weeks, we at Cut and Sewn have been happy to be a part of the skube production process, contracted to produce 300 skubes for the Skube.me summer stock. Kohler hand selected a variety of complimenting patterns, then delivered them to Cut and Sewn to be made into the finished product. This kind of access to local small batch manufacturing is what Cut and Sewn is all about. It provides a way for entrepreneurs to have their product made locally and affordably, while allowing us to give close attention to the manufacture of every garment. For the small business, it’s a win win situation.

Skube.me will be showing at Second Sunday on Main throughout the summer, starting this Sunday, June 14. Owner Monica Kohler can also be reached at  monica@skube.me or (513)505-9384 to schedule a pop-up sale or private showing.
