Letting the Cat out of the Bag.......

Well I might as well just say it since I "spilled the beans" during my BurdaStyle webinar on today (my next one is on Sewing Knits on Nov 21 btw). As it turns out I have made the leap to being a FULL TIME SEWING BUSINESS OWNER! That's right, instead of part-time, I'll be focusing my full time on growing my Custom Apparel& Tailoring/Alterations Business of 7 years. I sadly say goodbye to 15 years of working in the Scientific Research field. I've had the pleasure of working around some wonderful people and I've had LOTS of great memories and experiences. Heck where else could I got the experience of venturing to the Arctic Circle and seeing the Aurora Borealis first hand. Yep, that's me in the picture taken last year!!! Wow, that night was amazing!!!

 But it's time to embark on a new chapter and I'm totally ready!!!! That means alot of blood, sweat and tears will be going into my work. I've got lots to sew, new skills like draping to continue embarking on. I'm right in the middle of tailoring lessons with Mr. Jim (If you haven't been to his site you should visit. He's been working on a phenomenol Sports Coat for a client. Visit him HERE). So definitely expect more visits from me in blogland. I'll get to go back to visiting my favorite bloggers on a regular basis and will be blogging more regularly myself!!!! So expect for my adventures to kick high into gear and for me to load up on my "10,000 Hours of Sewing Challenge Hours". I plan on accomplishing some great things and venturing out into some new territories. I appreciate all of your well wishes as I transition into my new way of life and for everyone who thinks it not robbery to follow me along the way!!!!! .......BTW, I have to finish a clients gown this weekend and make one of my own. Expect for me to be rolling alot of work out soon.........

  33. I admire you for taking the leap and leaving the corporate field behind. In order to enjoy life, you should do what you love. Not many people are rewarded of this chance to do what they love for a living. I’m sure you can handle this well, and even run this sewing business longer than the time you spent researching. ;) Clint@Franchise Match
