I’m sure many of you have come across my friend Rachael around blogland, but if not, let me tell you a few things about her:

  • If you ever need someone to hang out with at the back of a class for a good laugh, Rachael’s yer woman.  She’ll even provide a pair of jeans for your bear
  • If you ever want to crash an impromptu class for a laugh, again, Rachael’s yer woman, she’s a good sport, and didn’t mind Allegory and I ‘creatively’ helping her along
  • If you ever need anyone to help clothe your kids, yep, Rachael again:
  • Oh, and did I mention clothing for you too?

Actually, Rachael’s craft creations could take up several blog posts, so let’s just focus on the clothing for now!  Here’s Rachael herself with a few words about her newest project:

Imagine Gnats started as a little etsy shop, selling small sewn items to help support my family and also to give me a creative outlet in a corporate world. it’s come a long way in just five years… from a hobby to a full-time job.  My love of sewing and design has grown as well, and now my own sewing patterns help and inspire others to create.

I am proud to have created patterns for garments that are easy to sew and easy to wear.  Imagine Gnats patterns feature classic silhouettes with a modern twist that incorporate clever details and practical techniques.

Currently, my patterns are all offered as printable pdfs.  The money raised on indiegogo will help cover the costs of an initial run of paper patterns, which means sharing my designs with even more sewists and inspiring more people.

For the cost of one pattern, you can help me reach my goal AND be one of the first to get the printed pattern of your choice.  For a little bit more, you can get a full set of imagine gnats printed patterns.  Plus, early bird specials offer even better deals for the first contributors!

My initial print run will include 500 each of my existing five garment patterns.  All of the money raised will go directly to that effort.  Once patterns are printed, I begin the selling and distribution phase.

I would love for you to tweet, share on facebook, email your friends and family… anything that will get the word out. every share helps and is so appreciated.’

Now I don’t want to name drop here, but the last person I promoted here for a crowdfunding campaign has had an absolutely fabulous year, so let’s help Rachael do the same!
