My Name is Angie Walsh. I have been the owner of Earthtone Clothing for the last 6 years. I first started sewing clothes about 7 years ago when I went to my first festival and saw all the uniquie and fun clothing everyone was wearing and really wanted to attemp to make some of my own. Since then I have learned to sew many different styles of clothing for the festival goes. It seems like everyday I have someone approaching me with some style of clothing they would like me to make for them which I love because it keeps me learning and trying new things.
WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO
Now I am at the point where demand is high and my time is not enough. I need to go on the road full time so that I can make clothing full time and keep up with demand and have the time to expand my abilities and let me creativity flow. I have also gone through 3 sewing machines because I work them so hard so it's time to get a new durable,quality serger to help me along the way.
Here is the a picture of the Baby Lock Machine that I am looking to get.
Where the $1000 is going to go:
This Machine alone Retails for $1500 but I really want to meet my goal so I am asking for less just to make my odds of achieving my goal higher. I would be elated if I were to be able to fund this all with this Kickstarter program and cover all the fees/shipping cost that are associated with the program.
5% ~ Kickstarter
5% ~ Amazon
HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS
It's simple really: The artist sets a goal to meet and then creates pledges that people can choose from to help the artist meet their goal. If the goal is not met within the allotted time frame, the artist receives nothing and the pledger is charged nothing. If the artist meets the goal, they are then funded for there project and then and only then is the pledgers debit card charged.
WHAT I WANT TO MAKE
I thought I would also put in some picture of what I do and some of the clothing that I have made over the years. I would really love to expand this line and see what I can come up with. The Warrior Outfits are my favorite and I would love to get more tribal with the looks. This first picture is of all my models at the Raw Fashion Show that I did. Some of my warrior line was showcased here.
Here are some individual shots from the show!
I also do a lot of patchwork designs and was looking to get more intricate with the geometric shapes. Here are some of the looks that I've done in the past as well as some pictures of recent shorts with the geometric shapes that I'm speaking of.
LINKS TO MY WORK
I also wanted to leave some links on here to my Facebook page as well as my Etsy page. So you can check out some of my previous work.
I have decided to offer some custom order options for my Kickstarter pledges as well as a couple fun ones. So to help you understand the customer order options I included reference pictures here to look at. I look forward to making these to your own personal liking and am super excited for any challenge you send my way. If you have a specific idea in mind and don't see a picture reference similar Please just message me with your thoughts and ideas and I can send you a quote on what the pricing would be.
