A very very big thank you to everyone involved!!
Something amazing is happening – and i’d really appreciate it if you could help me out.
A few months ago i was reading Frankie magazine, when an ad caught my eye. It was for a contest for people who are modernizing traditional crafts for our generation, to win $100,000 to further their businesses.
I don’t normally enter things, but this really hit me. As i kept reading, i just kept feeling like what they were describing is exactly what i’ve been trying to do – recreating, rethinking and redesigning sewing and sewing patterns for a new generation of crafters. Having a passion for traditional crafts in a modern world. I entered. I never enter things.
And something amazing happened – last week i got an email telling me i was one of the 10 finalists in Australia. I almost passed out with excitement!
I think you know what an investment like that could do for Megan Nielsen Patterns – it would mean more patterns, more tutorials, building a team, more of everything awesome – and I could really do all those things i want to do with the company! It would be literally, life changing. As you know, I’ve built this business working in the middle of the night, with almost no funding – and i can only imagine the amazing things i could do with a kickstart like this.
So this is me shamelessly asking - please, please if you could take a few moments to head on over to the Modern Craft Project website, and vote for me – i would be undyingly grateful. (i believe you can vote once a day)
Please spread the word!! Tell your friends, tell your family – tell anyone who loves sewing! (and forgive me if i mention it again a few times before the month is over… i’m kind of excited)
Thank you so so much! I’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again – your support, and encouragement and love of this brand is everything to me – thank you for being in my corner :)
Praying so hard that I make it through!!!
First off….whether or not you can still fit into those pre-pregnancy pants you still need to keep that belly in check! Which means….when your zipper is fully unzipped to accommodate that growing waistband and hips, there NEEDS to be something that covers up that whole mess. Little do you guys know, in 99% of every outfit my pants are fully unzipped and on the verge of busting…but fashion is pain right? Even during pregnancy. So, as some of you have asked…how the heck do you keep that all covered up and in check…answer….a stretchy tube of knit fabric, whether that is a long tank top, or just a band. It needs to be tight, stretchy and comes in a variety of colors. And possibly something you want to use after words, because these things are amazing regardless you are pregnant or not.
