some behind the scenes action at The Handmade Dress

Welcome to The Handmade Dress loft. The loft has been momentarily taken over by patterns, pattern packers, pattern folders, paper that will become patterns, and bags that will soon be stuffed with patterns. Come on in and I'll show you around, just don't sit on any patterns.

Our next show is Thursday so for the last several days since market (and that rookie mistake I told you about) we have been pattern packing maniacs! We made a few temporary changes to the loft for this big pattern packing know, I really should have a better name for it than that, "pattern packing effort"?? That just sounds dumb. How about "The Big Print of 09"? Maybe it doesn't need a name. I think I've just gone delirious from all the late nights.....Back to the loft, well, it is now a pattern factory.

Before it looked like this. Where my nest (sitting area) was, now there is a desk for Ben and shelves for printing supplies. My sewing machines are off of my sewing table and now that space is used as another table to pack patterns and store the finished product. Pretty cute employees, huh? This is David and Zachary, Ben's brothers.

So if you need me this is where I will be until Wednesday when we go to set up for the show, in the loft turned pattern factory packing away! I hope you enjoyed the behind the scenes tour! Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to show you the signs I'm working on today, that is, if the sun comes out. We shall see! Happy Monday friends! xoxo,Sam

Oh, if only I was closer. You know I would be there to help too!...but, hey I need you to work out all the kinks so when it's my turn to pack up all of mine you can give me some pointers! I can't wait to here about the next show!
