    I'm finally weaving on my new loom! It was a mammoth task to assemble and troubleshoot the new Jacquard. In the end, it took about 2 months longer than I had anticipated to get it operational, but I'm happy to say it is now up and fully running.

    I'm keeping this update short so I can head out to the studio and get to work, but I wanted to thank you all again for your love, support and words of encouragement. I could not have done this without you!

    Ok, off to weave.....

    Hello Everyone,

    Just wanted to give you a quick update and let you know that as of yesterday evening, my project was 100% funded! The campaign closes tomorrow and as of now I have exceeded my goal.
    I want to thank everyone who contributed with donations large and small.

    I've contacted the company in Norway that makes the TC-2 Jacquard and they will be shipping one out at the end of January.

    While I am thrilled beyond words to purchase a Jacquard for my studio, the feedback and encouragement I've gotten while running this campaign has been the best part of all. I loved receiving all of your emails, hearing your life updates and sharing mine with you. This unexpected aspect of the campaign has made this project feel like much more than a simple equipment purchase. We did this together.

    All perks (with the exception of drawings) will ship out Monday Dec. 17. Drawings will ship after the New Year.

    Thank you so much.

    Happy holidays however you celebrate them.

    Just over 2 weeks into the campaign and things are going great!

    The best part about this campaign so far has been reconnecting with friends and reading all the incredible emails of support from everyone. That alone has made this worthwhile. Thanks so much to everyone who has contribute thus far, be it monetarily, by sending out email and Facebook blasts or just writing me back with encouragement!

    Tote bags are back from the printers!!! I uploaded a pic with a sneak peak at what a $50 donation gets you.... tell your friends they all need one too :)
