Update #2

New Press + Machine Knitting Demonstration!

Comment

Hey everyone,

So much has been happening the last week with the project, and we are certainly moving along slowly but surely!


PRESS:

WAD Magazine: The super cool Paris based magazine WAD (We'ar Different) who also interviewed me a few months ago, featured SUMMER CAMP in their Breaking News section.

Textile Arts Center: Based in NYC this amazing textile foundation not only backed the project, and wrote up a blog post about SUMMER CAMP, but they are interested in selling the collection at their Greenwich Village based storefront.

The Cool Hour: This new "creative collective & online destination for the creative cool" based in Venice, CA featured SUMMER CAMP on their blog today.

REWARDS:

As mentioned in my last update I have been thinking about altering some of the rewards. I've made several changes in the past week which you may have noticed. I added a new reward, $40 for the Zip-line HIGH necklace and changed the $50 reward to the top bunk dreamin' necklace. I hope this suits your wishes and wants & I'd still love to hear your opinons on further changes! 


VIDEO UPDATES:

Due to the unconventional nature of my Kickstarter video, I thought it would be a good idea to make a few informative videos about the process of making the SUMMER CAMP collection. I've added this new video to the project page, which explains and demonstrates the process of machine knitting. I will be updating the page with more videos as the weeks progress, that explain other aspects of the creative process of making the necklaces.

Thanks again everyone for your interest and support in the SUMMER CAMP collection!  Please help by continuing to spread the word so we can make it to $10,000 :)
