Recent updates

We have reached the end - of THIS round

To all of our backers - THANK YOU! The show of support has been incredible and our appreciation is beyond words.

So what are we doing now? We are NOT giving up. All this means is that our initial take off will be a little slower then anticipated.

Know that we are not going away and we will not give up. It may take us a little to be able to offer the custom sizing like we will be doing, but it will happen. This is a learning experience and we will take these lessons to heart and go forward.

We are not seeing this as a failure. We see this as a way to try more ideas, and be even more prepared for our future goal and future Kickstarter campaign. With the possibility of a bigger line ready for our backers to see, and be even more excited to help us get into the business of promoting an exciting new line of Active Wear For Every Body.

Once again, thank you.

Growing Strong

Hi everyone!

We're so excited to be at 34% funded already!  The outpouring of support and feedback has been amazing, and I wanted to let you know that we're listening.

After several questions about our fabric choice, I'm back to the grindstone researching for fabric suppliers that can get us the better athletic fabrics that you've been asking about at a price that will still work for us.  If I can find something reasonably near in price to the fabric we were planning on using, I'll offer that as an option when we get all your info for rewards.  I promise to keep you updated!

Also in the good news category, tomorrow night we'll be shooting a video to post here on Kickstarter.  I hope to have it posted by Friday.  We want you all to see just how excited we are for this project!  And the revisions to the tank top pattern are done, I'll definitely have photos of that to post Thursday night.

So keep it coming!  What do you like?  What don't you like?  Have you shared our Kickstarter or blog with your friends?

Celebrating 15%

Hello Kickstarter friends!

Today we hit the 15% mark after only 2.5 days.  I'll be honest, every time I get an email telling me we have a new backer, I do a little happy dance.  It doesn't matter how much you've pledged, just seeing that another person believes in us enough to pledge makes me happy.

I had a great question from a backer about the materials used to make the clothing.  I've updated our project description to include that information.  We used 100% cotton knit to make the samples, and we're trying to find an affordable source of U.S. made 100% cotton knit for rewards and production.

You know what else makes me happy?  Kickstarter gives us a report of where our backers are coming from.  Only about 10% are coming from Kickstarter in general.  90% of you came here just for us.  That's amazing, and awesome, and so, so humbling.

Thank you!  And hang on tight, this is going to be some ride!
