getting excited December 02 2011, 11 Comments


We're counting the days awaiting the patterns arrival and I know some of you are too!  Two days ago the printer called and asked us to come down and approve the hard copy.  It was the first time in 3 years that I was asked to come to the back of the building.  Tom, John and Linda at StevensIS are amazing and they each do a great job at their job.  From the first time I walked in the door I was treated like family, and it's funny I feel a little like family now.  It didn't matter how small of a company we are or how small the job is, we are always treated special, and it doesn't hurt that Linda is always super excited to see what's next.  So what happens in the "back of the building"?  Printing of course.  Big machines, vegetable based inks and loud noises.  Loved it.  Tom took me over to where the pattern covers were being printed, he grabbed one of the prints put his hand on my shoulder and said, "kid, you're movin up".  Felt good to hear him say that since he's been with me since the first bubble skirt.  He asked me to proof read and sign off.  Daniela had been in earlier and gave her approval so all I had to do was initial:



They've since been sent to the Die Cutters and are on their way home, well my home.  Next stop is your home!

Happy Sewing (very soon)!
