We’re a 35 minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle and a short walk from the ferry terminal once you dock.
For more than 50 years customers have experienced Esther’s hometown, folksy, and friendly vibe while getting advice, fabric, and notions for most any sewing project. Many of you still remember the “real” Esther and her shop, a mainstay for decades on Bainbridge Island.
