We have been concentrating on "Sew Gorgeous" a lot more lately. Recently, we had our first official dress making workshop. It was awesome, we had about 38 come out to sew (all ages, even boys!). We are learning lots about sewing techniques from those who are much more experienced seamstresses than us who are willing to share their time, and skills.
Our friend Machala offered to tape parts of our workshop, and she made a couple youtube videos.
One (above) is a great look at who we are and what we are doing.
The second (will post) is a tutorial on how we make dresses... though there are many ways.
We are so overwhelmed and excited by the support and attention we have recieved lately. We have recently had a couple articles printed, a radio blurb, and this coming week, I will be on a local tv show. I hope this continues to draw support from our communities.
We have a logo which has just been designed for us. So we are in the midst of getting business cards, and car magnets. In the next couple months, we will be working on registering our name, printing pamphlets, working in schools, hosting more workshops, and launching a website... and more!-- but we really should keep some ideas for suprises! (then I will take it slow for a while while resting up and bonding with my new babe!)
If you want to know anymore about us, or check out what we have been up to....

Also, if you want to contact us (ie. questions, ideas, promotion, if you are available to deliver dresses to girls, donations, ....) you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
