Copy Cuts Studio

Copy Cuts is an intimate sewing studio at the home of Dawne Whelpley. This quaint and cozy cottage setting provides a relaxing space that is well equipped for the sewing enthusiast. You will have the use of quality Janome sewing machines, serger, cover pro, & necessities for sewing any project. Alternatively, you may bring along your own machine.


You can set up for private instruction time or can take part in a group class. For advanced sewers, workshops will be arranged.  The studio can host up to 6 sewers depending on the project. Instruction at the studio is geared to sewers of all ages from 12 to 92 but classes are limited to 4 sewers to allow for ample attention.

Dawne Whelpley

I'm a wife and homemaker of 45 years, mother of two, grandmother of three, and gramma of 5 canine fur babies and 7 felines.  Dont tell anyone but the last10 are my favorites. 


I was born in Calgary and moved to Vernon in 1993. After holding down too=many=to=mention jobs, I started Charlee Couture, maternity boutique, in Kelowna. Oh how I loved it!


Six years later my life took a drastic turn, as it has a tendancy to do, and I started Copy Cut Fashions then added the sewing studio in April 2019.
