I am down to my last SKU to sew for fall. I am so proud that I was able to get everything else into stores. Actually the dress I have left to sew, sold so well at Lucia all of them are going there. Most of the Orange colorway sold out in the first week! I hopefully will get some more fabric to make some more for other shops.
Got back from Las Vegas last week. I purchased 737 yards of fabric. I cannot even tell you how EXCITED I am about that. It is for Winter/Holiday and Spring. Tonight I made 4 prototypes for winter, and I want to wear all of them. Major nerd times.
Only bad thing to report is that I have majorly messed up my back. I wish I could say I was doing something cool, but sadly it has been me gradually abusing it. I am wearing a back brace and getting adjusted a bunch. If you need the name of an excellent chiropractor let me know. I haven't been able to bend over at all. Luckily I have full range of motion on my arms, so I can still sew. I have good studio mates who have been helping me lay fabric, and move the fabric rolls around.
This year we have gathered a Race for the Cure Team. The race is Sunday. Unfortunately I have been advised doing the entire 5K walk is not in the best interest of my back. So I will be at the starting line, and then setting up the after breakfast at Lucia. I am really excited because we should have close to 20 people on our team, and we met our fund raising goal of $500 for the Komen foundation. This is an important event to me. My grandmother died of breast cancer, my aunt is a strong survivor, my mother and younger sister have both had things removed from their breasts. 10% of Lucia sales will be donated to Komen foundation on the day of the event. So now you have a good excuse to shop!
