Hello my fellow stitchers! Ship's Manor started in 2010 as a cross-stitch design company. My Mother taught me to stitch when I was very young. Not a popular thing for males to do but I thought it was fun and it continued into adulthood. At the beginning of 2016 I decided to start dyeing thread in addition to design.
Before this I had made limited colors in fabric and thread so I know how the dyeing process works. I will use these funds to offer up a variety of counts and styles of fabrics. I will also be getting a serger because no one likes raggedy edges. I will only use this money for dye if I don't already have a color I need. Also, my website needs an update to allow for more fabric choice options. The great thing is Ship's Manor fabric has already been in a magazine! I used a color I dyed up in a design for the magazine.
Extra Stretch Goals:
$2000 - All backers ($25 and above) will receive a free Ship's Manor pattern (PDF) ,of your choice, in addition to the previous stretch goals.
Risks and challenges
The only challenge that could come up is shipping time. This all depends on how long it would take to get supplies. Also, other obligations I have are thread orders and a couple of magazine designs. This would only bump the shipping date back a small amount but I don't see this happening. You will be the first to know if it does!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
