Counting Down

Hello all!

I’d like to apologize for the radio silence this week.  I’ve been dealing with a summer cold/sinus infection all week and cold medications are not conducive to writing… it’s kind of like trying to make sense when you’re drunk.  Just doesn’t work.

We’re less than 48 hours away from the end of our Kickstarter campaign, and we’ve still got $3228 to go before we meet our goal.  I can’t stress enough how important it is for us to meet our goal.  Kickstarter is all or nothing.  If we don’t reach that goal, we don’t receive any of the money.

And if we don’t reach the goal?  We won’t abandon the project, that for sure.  But it will change the game plan quite a bit.  We’ll have to work with our current, old equipment until we earn enough to replace it.  Our serger is 24 years old and our sewing machine is somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 years old.  The serger is the biggest concern.  It won’t last very long at all, and may not last long enough for us to replace it, even with another inexpensive model.  It also doesn’t do the hem stitch we need.

Probably the biggest, saddest change of plans if we don’t reach our Kickstarter goal is that we’ll have to limit our size offerings, or charge an additional fee for “extended” sizes.  Without the pattern drafting software and large format printer, those larger patterns will have to be drafted by hand, which can take up to 2 hours for each size.

If you haven’t already, please take the time to pledge your support.  Every dollar counts.  Spread the word.  Share the link to our Kickstarter campaign or our blog with your friends and family.  Together we can make active wear for every body a reality.
