2017 Year in Review

Hi everyone. Hello sewers and all those who love vintage.

First I want to apologize for my lack of posts this year. It's not because I haven't been sewing. I have, a lot. Even have a part time job sewing costumes, but when you sign an NDA, you can't share all that cool work.

Not to mention this was the year of chasing work where ever I could find it. I had to move abruptly after I got in essence kicked out of my previous living situation in January, and the entire year has been me trying to steady my wobbling feet from that abruptness. I'm SO GLAD I moved, but a lot of things had to be hurried in order for me to just get out of that disfunction. Then Brian got sick, twice, my calendar Kickstarter failed, and clients just didn't pay me.

It's taken about a year to recover.
