New Member: Vuta Impressions Studio

At Vuta Impressions Studio I customize apparel and accessories, decals, home decor, sports ware, party gifts and more. I also offer printmaking, basic sewing and fun crafts classes within the studio. Students explore their creativity in making fabric prints, and then produce their own finished products by sewing everyday simple usable items. Printmaking is an art that includes batik and block printing, tie & dye, tub dyeing, fabric painting, stenciling, serigraphy and more.

I approach my work with a unique perspective that takes into account your needs and your individual style. My style and techniques are broad and flexible, developed over years of training and experience.

If you need one, two, ten, or fifty hoodies imprinted with your logo, I will do them for you. If you need 100 pants, hats, T-shirts or bandanas customized for your special event, I am at your service too with a smile. Give Tabi a call or text at (403) 952-5690 or email.

I offer custom small quantities, quick turnaround, and local service at pricing that make sense. Visit to view a portfolio of my work.
