W O W ! Alisha is currently living in the backwoods of Missouri which seems like a million light years away ! She will be gone for one full month then back to Wilmington where we will live and make things together. By the way, our new sewing machine is officially put together ! Thanks to all of you ! You can't even understand how happy we were to see the machine. It's ours and nothing can stop us now.

If you haven't received your kickstarter reward yet, don't fret ! They will be in your mailboxes as soon as our new studio is up and running. We tried to complete everything before the big move but we were a bit rushed. Time will only makes things better.

For now, enjoy a few photos of the country, our new machine, a few backers with their rewards and our first idea for screen prints ! !
