Rye and Ginger have great plans for their new website www.ryeandgingerkits.com which will be dedicated to information about their sewing kits. You’ll see pictures of each kit as they come available and the site will not be dedicated to corset kits only. Plans include simple pre-cut kits for a skirt and chemise and many other ideas…if only they didn’t need to sleep at night they’d get them all done sooner! Rye and Ginger are dedicated to a quality product so they’re going over everything and testing their kits to be sure what you get will work – provided of course you follow the instructions! Contact us anytime! We look forward to hearing from you.

Rye and Ginger are planning several video clips, though it will be spring 2010 before these are on-line. The video clips will lead you through the steps of making the kits so you can actually watch it being done – sometimes the written word just doesn’t do it so you’ll be able to watch Ginger make a corset for Rye using one of their corset kits. You’ll be able to see every step of the process including fitting the corset.
You’ll see the real Rye and Ginger in the video clips and if you're ever in Evanston and drop into Vogue Fabrics you just might bump into one of them.
You can sign up for the Rye and Ginger Kit Blast, sign-up and they’ll let you know when new kits are being introduced and when older kits are going on sale or being discontinued. You'll also hear about classes and what events they'll be at selling their kits! For example they'll both be at the Creativ Festival in Toronto in October and Rye will be at the ReenactorFest in February 2010.
You’ll be able to send in pics of what you did with your kit and they just might get posted on the Rye and Ginger kits web site with your name and comments! So, you’ll be able to see your work on-line and you’ll be able to see what other people have done to.
The site will also talk about generic stuff like the important aspects of the sewing machine we use – why we like it for corset making, fusible interfacing, spray adhesive, etc. Think of it as an educational site that’s fun and focused on corset making. What the site will not do…is sell the kits – which may sound odd, but there will be links on the site to take you to Vogue Fabrics or to Farthingales.
