Lots of news and happy vibes in this post!
Ok just want to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us-- whether that was by sharing the kickstarter campaign for new scents of Ponderosa Thread Gloss on social media, or backing the campaign (and earning goooood rewards!!)
The feedback on this project is way more than I had hoped for or could've imagined. Wow!!
But before I share some kickstarter updates and pretty things with you, I want to tell you about a few local events coming up! You can click any of the below photos to go directly to the event page. Even if you're sick of me, come to these events to see some other rad boss babes just in time to grab easter + mother's day goodies.
Also, I'm currently teaching embroidery workshops in Olympia. The next beginner class (April 13) is already totally sold out, but there is room in the intermediate florals class on April 20.
If you aren't local, you can grab cacti embroidery kits online! There is the digital download of instruction booklet and templates HERE for $15 or the whole kit with alllll the supplies you need to land feet first in the world of embroidery PLUS the instruction booklet and pre-printed fabric templates for only $35, HERE. Enjoy!
ALRIGHT here's the 411 on the kickstarter.
As I'm writing this, the project is currently 248% funded-- that means we've hit our goal, and now we have the opportunity to make this launch even BIGGER + BETTER.
After hitting our initial goal of $250, we then hit our flex goal of $500 (we're currently at $620!!).
ALL of the backers above $30 will get ALL of the new variations of thread gloss AND another surprise treat!
Here's what we plan on doing with the launch as it stands right now, fully funded:
Ordering bulk beeswax
ordering bulk coconut oil
ordering bulk essential oils
ordering a double-boiler to blend the wax + oils
Learn from Olivia Salazar DeBreaux, of Oly Bella, the woman who manufactured the first batch of thread gloss last month.
order bulk labels
order bulk containers
order bulk packaging
deliver requested rewards by backers
Here's what we can do with the goal of $500:
all of the above list, plus:
reward all backers with extra goodies + a surprise treat
order sticker packs to include with each order
add one more scent to the varieties offered
donate a pack of thread gloss + embroidery supplies to Hummingbird Studio and teach a pro-bono embroidery workshop, an art establishment in Olympia that teaches folks with disabilities how to express themselves through art
add metallic or holographic accent onto labels
We've hit our goal and then some, so get ready to reap some awesome rewards if you're a backer! And if you're not, you still have until 10am PST on Thursday, April 4.
