Ever since I've been self-employed, Ithe work hasn't stopped! Sewing for others. Not a bad thing, really. The plan is 2 fold: make money - put it in the bank; train up some stitchers to produce my line. So if it takes another year to do it right, there's no issue. I had a spare moment to pull out my sketches and swatches and stay connected to the absolute goal. Contract sewing won't keep me from pushing tee's and making introductions to stores in other cities...thinking about Canada next:)
