A one woman show looking to go into production.

Sink or Swim emerged over several years of wishing I could do more with my ideas. Working a day job in graphic design wasn't fulfilling my love for sewing and design. Starting out as a hobby, my products kept evolving and quickly turned from a hobby into a side business.

As it turns out, people wanted one of my  accessories for themselves. I started selling them, and it took over my life. As owner, designer, manufacturer and only employee, the product orders have piled up. I am a one-woman show.  I have made all of my products by hand and by myself in a small section of my kitchen that turned into my sewing area, but more often than not, it completely consumes my entire house. This swift development has been both overwhelming and incredibly rewarding. And now it's time to grow. 

Keeping the production in the USA is very important to me, so I was thrilled to find a fantastic company right here in Chicago to manufacture my products, and that's where you come in. I'm not asking for charity; think of this as pre-ordering the Sink or Swim product of your dreams.  I need to raise enough money to put my Hero Collection into production at a facility right here in my hometown.

For your pledge I am offering products from my Hero Collection, as well as some smaller intensives like stickers and buttons. And with every pledge, you get my undying gratitude for helping me make my dream come true.

If you can help me raise enough to run production, I can make it to Magic in Las Vegas to officially launch my new line.
