Yes, Yes, YES!!!! And not just funded --112% funded as of this morning!!

This is AMAZING. I am so humbled by all of your support -- and so excited for what this means for Emily+Ross. Now that we're fully funded, we'll be working toward funding our stretch goals for the next two weeks, which include:

-- Producing Miami and NYC scarves (in addition to Brooklyn)

-- Developing a full e-commerce site

-- Adapting the scarf designs for tea towels and having samples made from different manufacturers

-- Holding trunk shows to attract more retail buyers, and if funding allows, renting trade show booth space to attract even MORE retail buyers!

Thank you all so, so very much. You guys ROCK!!!

With love and gratitude,
